More U.S. Murders in the Middle East

The U.S. national-security establishment and its acolytes in the mainstream press are celebrating the U.S. military’s murder in Syria of Islamic State leader Abu Ibrahim Hashimi Qurayshi. Mind you, they don’t call it murder. They call it a “targeted killing” of a “bad guy” or a “terrorist.” But murder it is because the U.S. military has no legitimate authority to kill anyone in the Middle East (or anywhere else), whether it be people it labels “bad guys,” “terrorists,” “communists,” “opponents,” “rivals,” “adversaries,” or “enemies.”

Killing of IS leader gives U.S. bogus legitimacy to remain in Mideast

According to Muhammad al-Khidr, a Syrian writer and journalist, the U.S. operation came to save face for the U.S.-led coalition forces on Syrian soil after a resounding slap they received two weeks ago when dozens of IS militants stormed the Kurdish-controlled Sina’a prison in the northeastern province of Hasaka despite the presence of U.S. forces in the area.

He noted that the U.S. had already known the whereabouts of the IS leader when IS militants began clashes at the prison, which later revealed that he had been in contact with IS inmates who started the riot at the Sina’a prison as their comrades outside attempted to storm the facility.
