Original Article

Exclusive: U.S. Special Operations forces on the ground in Iraq were following a convoy carrying Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani when it was struck by an American drone last week, killing Soleimani and nine others, Fox News has learned. The soldiers following Soleimani's convoy as it left Baghdad International Airport were about a half-mile behind when it was hit (Snip) The source told Fox News that U.S. forces dragged Soleimani's body away from the scene and extinguished the fire before formally identifying the Iranian general. They took photos of his possessions, which included books of poetry and wads of cash. He was also carrying a pistol and an assault rifle.

Comments:

As grizzly as this article sounds, it's good to know that we have our Special Forces who were there to do the immediate grim task of identifying this MONSTER. What I have been finding "funny" since this excellent KILL is, no one seems to talk about the other terrorist general in the car, whatever his name was. My point is, these generals or terrorist "leaders" are meaningless upon their "execution". Into the dustbin or ash heap of history. HA!

The world is,, indeed, a safer place today. The killing of Gen. Soleimani was a wake-up call to dozens of other terrorist leaders, including the Iran mullahs. They now realize that it's not safe to kill Americans any more. By the way, as I read the comments from various articles, I have noticed that the democrat trolls are rather subdued today. That's another benefit of President Trump's action.

It is for this reason that HE (high explosives) are made. They worked well, and the terrorist Shiite general Soleimani is no more. Bloody men come to bloody ends. Shakespeare used element as a verb, the past participle of which is "elemented," which means to be reduced to one's most basic component parts. That's what happened to Soleimani. He wears it well. "Bang bang Maxwell's Silver Hammer came down upon his head (doot do do do). Clang clang Maxwell's Silver Hammer made sure that he was dead." (The Beatles, 1969)

The Senator Mike Lee quote in the article is interesting given his rebellion and outspoken anger at the briefing the government arranged for Congresscritters.

When I served SF, whenever we planned any operation we always had “Plan B” in case Plan A went to hell, so I’m thinking the SF team following Soleimani was Plan B for the Hellfire Plan A. Nah, probably not.

# 3 Exactly. The taking out of Soleimani had multi purpose effect. It demonstrated to the world Peace through Strength works ... not quid pro quo nuke deals that helped finance terrorism in the Middle East. Intelligence had been tracking Soleimani for some time. The mission was perfectly executed and we cut off the head of the snake. The downing of the Ukrainian aircraft was tragically unfortunate and has added to the Iranians problems that they alone now have to deal with.

The death of a Chinese doctor who was punished for blowing the whistle on the coronavirus outbreak has triggered unprecedented public criticism of the Communist Party from inside China. Li Wenliang, 34, was hailed a martyr amid growing dissent and anger over China's moves to cover up the early stages of the outbreak.

President Donald Trump beat back a lawsuit by 215 congressional Democrats who say he has been violating the Constitution’s emoluments clauses by profiting from foreign government spending at his Washington hotel and other properties.

The endangered pangolin may be the link that facilitated the spread of the novel coronavirus across China, Chinese scientists said Friday. (Snip) The pangolin is considered the most trafficked animal on the planet and more than one million have been snatched from Asian and African forests in the past decade, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). They are destined for markets in China and Vietnam, where their scales are used in traditional medicine - despite having no medical benefits - and their meat is bought on the black market. Experts on Friday called for the Chinese scientists to release more data from their research.

Ingrid Newkirk, the president of PETA, said this is derogatory and suggests they are merely a 'commodity' or 'decoration'.

New York - The Pentagon has announced that 34 US service members have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries resulting from the Iranian missile attack on US forces in Iraq earlier this month, in spite of Donald Trump's downplaying of the wounds as "headaches".

Since then, Mr Trump has acknowledged that the Americans had been injured, but downplayed their significance. According to the Pentagon, eight of the service members were flown to the US from Germany for treatment, nine are still receiving treatment in Germany,

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire -- For a brief moment, concerned looks crossed the faces of some Elizabeth Warren supporters gathered for her election-night event in a cavernous building near the Manchester airport. There were no TVs visible to most of the crowd -- a common feature for a struggling campaign that doesn't want the audience to see bad news. There was no warm-up speaker. At 8:20 p.m., facing a fourth-place finish in New Hampshire after a third-place showing a week ago in Iowa, Warren walked onstage without fanfare. She began by acknowledging that Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg "had strong nights."
