Believe nothing establishment media report.
They consistently lie and otherwise deceive followers of their fake news rubbish.
On September 13, Politico falsely claimed that Iran is “weighing an assassination attempt against the American ambassador to South Africa (sic).”
Citing an anonymous Trump regime official, the publication claimed (a nonexistent plot) is in retaliation for killing Quds Force commander General Qassem Soleimani last January by the Pentagon, adding:
“The Iranian embassy in Pretoria is involved in the plot (sic).”
No evidence was cited because none exists. The phony claim was a likely pre-US November presidential election stunt to make Trump look tough on Iran.
General Soleimani was a redoubtable anti-terrorism freedom fighter, greatly respected by Iranians and others regionally.
At the time of his cold-blooded murder by imperial USA based on Big Lies, Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif called him “THE most effective force fighting Daesh (ISIS), Al Nusrah, Al Qaeda et al…”
Iranian President Rouhani called him “an international figure of the resistance” — murdered by the Trump regime because of his effectiveness in combatting US-supported ISIS and likeminded jihadists.
Killing him was an act of US state-sponsored terrorism, a flagrant breach of international and US constitutional law.Trump Threatens Iran Over Fake News Plot to Kill US Envoy
