Yesterday, a suicide bomber in Iran detonated himself, killing seven — seven! — commanders of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the personal terrorist army of the Iranian regime. The IRGC was created by Ayatollah Khomeini in the opening moments of his rule following the Iranian revolution in 1979. It first served as Khomeini’s personal goon squad for crushing internal rivals and protecting that rule. It soon graduated into international terrorism, serving as a training and advising cadre for Hezbollah and other groups. The IRGC has been all over Iraq in recent years and has a great deal of American blood on its hands.
It is curious that the State Department would leap into action upon hearing the news to say the following:
“We condemn this act of terrorism and mourn the loss of innocent lives,” State Department Spokesman Ian Kelly said in a statement in Washington.
“Reports of alleged US involvement are completely false,” he added.
Why does the Obama administration work so hard to always reassure the Iranian regime that the U.S. has only its best interests at heart? And why did it take our government only moments to respond to the utterly non-tragic and thoroughly deserved killings of some hardened terrorists and murderers — but it took days to offer even the meekest criticism of the murders and beatings of anti-regime protesters in June? Under the Obama Doctrine, the worse you act, the better you’re treated.
