As if we didn’t need one more reason to kick the United Nations out of its building and turn it into condos, CNN is reporting that UN rapporteur on extra-judicial executions Agnès Callamard has tweeted that the killing of dapper-bearded bodybuilder Qasem Soleimani was “most likely unlawful.”

When the UN’s rapporteur on extra-judicial executions tweets, we listen.
The targeted killings of Qasem Soleimani and Abu mahdi al muhandi most likely violate international law incl human rights law. Lawful justifications for such killings are very narrowly defined and it is hard to imagine how any of these can apply to these killings. #Iraq

1) he was operating in Iraq, as a terrorist, attacking US and Iraqi people
2) this makes him an enemy combatant
3) he deserved to die.

Authorized by Congress
Attack against an active enemy combatant who was committing terror against US personnel
Inside a theater the US declared war in (Iraq)

While he was carrying out “lawful” terrorist attacks against US ?

The @UN is like a bad relationship. Expensive, naggy and pointless.
Time to break up. 🇺🇸

As punishment to @realDonaldTrump the UN should pack up and completely leave the U.S. That will teach him

The same UN that has China, Cuba, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela in the Human Rights council?

The UN lost all credibility when they added Saudi Arabia to the human rights panel

The UN has no moral high horse upon which to judge America. They can piss off in any general direction.

Can't wait for the UN to finally step into the Middle-East and actually solve a crisis for once! Just pass another anti-Israeli resolution to fix this, I'm sure!

Soleimani being in Iraq was also illegal, and the UN knew about it for like 5 years…

The UN had him under an international travel ban. He was killed in Iraq. He was not supposed to leave Iran. Case closed.https://t.co/KG6Eg6nHHC

CNN praying as hard as they can for a war. Libs upset that not only did we retaliate but no Americans were killed. They are screaming where’s the red line warning? LOL

The UN. No credibility at all. Was it lawful when Soleimani planned and killed thousands of people, including in his own country?
