US President Donald Trump and senior officials in his administration must face execution for ordering the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, which was an “act of murder” based on lies and false claims, an American scholar says.
“That makes the murder of General Soleimani completely illegal, and clearly a war crime, an act of murder,” said Kevin Barrett, an author, journalist and radio host with a Ph.D. in Islamic and Arabic Studies.
“Here in the United States, murderers are still executed, so President Trump, [Secretary of State] Mike Pompeo and whoever else is behind this crime should be executed,” Barrett told Press TV on Wednesday.
