Investigative

This is a very detailed, investigative look into Trump's decision to airstrike Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani. Although there are a lot of anonymous sources throughout, this article tries to highlight how a decision like this is made and what weighs into it. I appreciate that it was not used to promote or denounce the decision, but rather focused on how such decisions are made. My only critique is that I don't like it when government announcements are relayed in the media as fact, which this article gets close to do when they repeat statements that depict Soleimani as a "bad guy" or "imminent threat".
