Brian Duff is correct when he calls out those who want to apologize to Iran for killing a terrorist who had killed over 600 American soldiers. A story he posted on Facebook might make these apologists understand why President Trump took out this murderer who had been terrorizing the Middle East for decades. Thanks, Brian Duff!
Brian Duff posted on Facebook about Army Captain Brian S. Freeman:
For those people who want to apologize to Iran for the killing of Qassem Soleimani, I present you with Army Captain Brian S. Freeman.
Brian was a loving husband, father, Olympic caliber athlete and Army Civil Affairs team leader who cared about people regardless of who they were, where they came from, what God they worshipped, or their politics.
Thirteen years ago this month, Cpt. Brian Freeman and his team of Civil Affairs soldiers were in Karbala, Iraq, at a meeting to help improve the lives of the people of that province.
During that meeting, a team under the command of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, stormed in, killing several Americans, and capturing Brian and several members of his team.
The captured CA team members were handcuffed, driven away from the meeting, and later executed. Once found, in spite of our best efforts, several medics, including myself, unsuccessfully attempted to save Brian.
Captain Freeman is but one of the lives lost due to the evil of Qassem Soleimani. Qassem Soleimani was an evil person whose end, regardless of the politics surrounding it, is a good thing.
With that, anyone apologizing to Iran for Soleimani’s death is, I feel, pandering to an oppressive regime out of either ignorance, moral bankruptcy, or in a heartless attempt at self-promotion.
Rest in Peace Brian.
