Clare Lopez, a member of the CCNS, discusses the aftermath of the killing of Quds Forces leader Qasem Suleymani. She discusses the ideology that drove him, and the “Twelvers.” He set up jihad terror militias all across the Middle East. He was enemy no. 1 for both Israel and the U.S. She discusses how Iran was involved in the attacks on the U.S. on 9/11, something that is generally ignored by the media, and even most politicians. She goes over the timeline of the actions by Suleymani leading up to the attack on our embassy in Baghdad, and his death shortly thereafter. And the road ahead, as Iran deals with a U.S. led by a president unlike any they have faced before.
