“Transnational terrorism…” Former Top Pentagon Official calls out American hypocrisy on Nijjar

Sep 23, 2023

Washington DC (USA), Sept 23 (ANI): Former Pentagon Official Michael Rubin on September 23 slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on his allegations against India and said PM Trudeau has made a huge mistake. “Prime Minister Trudeau has made a huge mistake. He has made allegations in a manner which he hasn’t been able to back. There are two possibilities here, either he was shooting from the hip and he does not have the evidence to support the accusations he made against the Indian government or there is something there, in which case he needs to explain why his government was sheltering a terrorist with blood on his hands,” said Michael Rubin.He also responded to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s statement on Hardeep Singh Nijjar’s issue and said America is being hypocritical. “...Let’s not fool ourselves, Hardeep Singh Nijjar was not simply a plumber any more than Osama Bin Laden was a construction engineer. He had blood on his hands through multiple attacks. And therefore, while Secretary Blinken may after the facts, say that the United States will always stand against transnational oppression. We’re actually being hypocritical if Secretary Blinken makes that statement because after all, what we’re talking about isn’t transnational repression. We’re talking about transnational terrorism and what the United States did to Qasem Soleimani and what the United States did to Osama Bin Laden is really no different than what India is alleged to have done in this case,” he said.
