Iran’s Supreme Leader Has Named Successor For Soleimani

Published

on

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has chosen a successor for Qassem Soleimani, one of the leaders of the Quds Force that was killed by a drone attack launched under the authority of President Trump after actionable intelligence pointed to Soleimani’s intent to attack American personnel in the region.

Iran’s state media revealed that Brigadier General Esmail Ghaani would replace Soleimani as the Qud Force’s chief commander.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

Khamenei claimed that the Quds force would “be unchanged from the time of his predecessor” under the new leadership of Ghaani. The Quds force, which has been designated a foreign terrorist organization by the United States, is a paramilitary force used by Iran to project force in other parts of the Middle East.

The U.S. killed Soleimani Thursday in an airstrike in Iraq. The chief commander was responsible for hundreds of American deaths in the Middle East.

The drone attack by the United States came as a response to Iranian-backed militias members trying to breach the U.S. embassy in Iraq. President Trump made it clear on Tuesday that America would issue a strong response to the attacks.

I’d say killing a top commander definitely qualifies as a “strong response.”

Charges Announced in the Death of Daunte Wright

The charges may not appease protesters, however.

As Minneapolis and her suburbs contuse to grapple with violence and looting in the aftermath of the death of Daunte Wright, officials on Wednesday announced charges against the officer involved in the case. Wright was shot and killed several days ago in an incident that was described as “accidental” by the police chief of Brooklyn Center, a suburb of Minneapolis where, coincidentally, the trial of Derek Chauvin, the police officer involved in the death of George Floyd, is currently ongoing. Now it appears as though another trial will be coming to the greater Minneapolis area in the coming months. Local prosecutors in Minnesota on Wednesday are expected to charge former Brooklyn Center Police Officer Kim Potter with second-degree manslaughter in the death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright, as civil unrest has persisted for three consecutive nights, with demonstrations spilling into Minneapolis. Washington County Attorney Pete Orput is expected to announce the second-degree manslaughter charge later Wednesday. Orput did not immediately return a voicemail left by Fox News on Wednesday. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, according to The Associated Press. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, KSTP and Minnesota Public Radio all reported Orput’s expected charging announcement. Potter is believed to have been reaching for her taser when she accidentally brandished her service pistol instead, striking and killing Wright with one projectile, while expressing her disbelief as seen and heard on body cam footage.

Despite Travel Warning, MI Health Official Visits Popular Spring Break Spot

And it’s not the first time that Michigan officials have been caught flouting their own guidance.

While we may be nearing the end, or at least the beginning of the end of the coronavirus pandemic, there are still some pockets of the nation where trouble remains high.  Michigan just happens to be one of those places. This, despite the draconian lockdowns imposed by controversial Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who has been the target of a number of harsh criticisms over her handling of the pandemic. Now, in what some seem to believe could be a brazen flouting of their own advice, one top health official in the state has jetted off to a popular spring break destination while Michigan itself remains under a travel advisory. Michigan’s new health director traveled to Alabama last week shortly after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer discouraged residents from traveling as the state leads the nation in the highest number of new coronavirus cases, a local news service first reported this week. Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Director Elizabeth Hertel was in Gulf Shores, Ala., according to the Michigan Information & Research Service. Gulf Shores is a popular resort destination along the Gulf of Mexico. A DHHS spokesperson told Fox News the agency does not “discuss the director’s personal schedule.” The locals were not amused. “The sheer brazenness of Gov. Whitmer and her staff is truly something else,” Michigan GOP spokesman Ted Goodman told Fox News. “The fact that our Governor and her top staff think it’s appropriate to travel out of state on vacation as Michigan faces the worst COVID numbers of any state in the country just reveals the arrogance and condescending nature of this administration. Whitmer’s position on the draconian lockdown orders is simple — rules for thee, but not for me.” This isn’t the first time that Michigan officials have been caught ignoring their own advice, with Governor Whitmer’s…
