TEDRA COBB REFUSES TO CALL SOLEIMANI A TERRORIST DESPITE RESPONSIBILITY FOR HUNDREDS OF AMERICAN DEATHS AND THOUSANDS WOUNDED

Glens Falls, NY:NY-21 Democratic candidate Tedra Cobb flat-outrefused to call Qasem Soleimani a terroristduring an event in Glens Falls yesterday, despite being asked directly by a voter.

From thePost Star:

“In response to a question asking why she would not call Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who was killed with a U.S. drone strike, a terrorist, she said there is not any doubt that he has killed Americans and others, prompting an audience member to shout out: ‘are you calling him a terrorist?’

“Cobb did not respond and moved on to the next question.”

This comes just days after NY-21 Democratsblasted Cobbfor not fully denouncing President Trump’s strike on the terrorist mastermind.

“Cobb’s refusal to call Qasem Soleimani a terrorist is shameful and unacceptable for a candidate for the United States Congress,”said Stefanik.“Without equivocation, Soleimani is a terrorist who has the blood of hundreds of American troops on his hands. He is responsible for the loss of hundreds of American lives and thousands more who were wounded. This is not a difficult question for any American let alone a candidate for the United States Congress.”
