the Newspaper “new York times” caught Mike Pompeo in the exaggeration of the reaction of Iraqis to the death of General Soleimani. The publication studied the 22-second video posted Pompeo on Twitter. In a tweet Pompeo claims that the Iraqis “dancing in the streets in support of freedom” and that residents “are grateful that General Soleimani is no more.”
the Publication said that the picture of General rejoicing, presented Pompeo, obviously embellished. In fact, none of the people in the frame, not danced. Only one person really rejoiced at the death of Soleimani, others shouted that his death was the vengeance for the death of Iraqis protesting the presence of Iran in the territory of their country.
the Newspaper asked for comment to the state Department, but has not yet received a response.”New York times” considers the video as an example of how spreading disinformation in the modern world. The newspaper said that Pompeo was too eager to create the right Washington picture of what happened.
Earlier it was reported that a rocket attack on the outskirts of Baghdad killed General Qasim Soleimani – the head of special forces “Quds,” the Iranian revolutionary guard. Later Iran’s Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed that the killing of Qassem Soleimani will not remain without revenge.
