Remember all of the memes back when President Trump executed a drone strike on terrorist Qasem Soleimani? How all of the Democrats were crying about it? Rep. Pramila Jayapal complained that Trump had “recklessly assassinated Qasem Soleimani” with “no evidence of an imminent threat or attack.” They said the attack made us less safe. So we’re wondering … was top Islamic State leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi planning an imminent attack when he (and several children) were killed during a U.S. raid in Syria?

An anonymous U.S. official said that Qurayshi detonated a suicide vest and killed his family. With the recent drone strike on an innocent man in Afghanistan that killed several children fresh in people’s minds, it doesn’t seem out of sorts to ask White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about the incident.

The reporter was NPR’s Ayesha Rascoe.

State Department spokesman Ned Price tried a similar tack, asking reporters if they were going to buy propaganda coming out of Russia:

Why would anyone doubt the credibility of the U.S. government?
