(AbsoluteNews.com) – President Joe Biden has made it clear that he wants to work with Iran. However, a recent rocket attack in Iraq might make it incredibly hard to justify that to the American people, especially since one of their own is dead.
Experts believe the February 15 rocket attack in Iraq that killed a US civilian contractor was likely carried out by Iranian-backed militias. The incident reportedly bore signs of similar tactics used by Shiite militias in the Kurdish region of the country.
Iranian spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh claimed his country has nothing to do with the militia that claimed credit for the attack. Douglas Silliman, the former ambassador to Iraq from 2016 to 2019, said there’s “no doubt” the “Iranian-supported Iraqi Shia militias” carried out the attack.

Four days after the deadly attack, the Biden administration said it’s still ready to talk to Iran about a new nuclear agreement. That makes one wonder: how many Americans have to die before the new president takes the Iranian threat seriously?
