Because “enemies of the people” like the press should roam free. And even the US Secretary of Defense knows nothing about the “four embassies” supposedly targeted by Soleimani.
Trump: “To the leaders of Iran – DO NOT KILL YOUR PROTESTERS. Thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you, and the World is watching. More importantly, the USA is watching. Turn your internet back on and let reporters roam free! Stop the killing of your great Iranian people!”
The best response goes to Brian Tyler Cohen: “The guy who just threatened to bomb Iran’s cultural sights warns that the world is watching, before demanding that reporters, whom he regularly attacks as the “enemy of the people,” be allowed to roam free.
And he wonders why no one in the world takes him seriously.”

خطاب به رهبران ايران: معترضان خود را نكشيد. هزاران تن تاكنون به دست شما كشته يا زنداني شده اند، و جهان نظاره گر است. مهمتر از ان، ايالات متحده نظاره گر است. اينترنت را دوباره وصل كنيد و به خبرنگاران اجازه دهيد ازادانه حركت كنند! كشتار مردم بزرگ ايران را متوقف كنيد! https://t.co/rzpx3Nfn03

The “one bit of good news” amid mixed claims on intelligence over the recent U.S. drone strike against Iran is President Trump’s call for reporters to be able to “roam free” in Iran, Trump’s Republican challenger Bill Weld said Sunday.
“The one bit of good news today is we know that he wants reporters to roam free in Iran,” Trump said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” referencing the president’s Sunday morning tweet.
“The only problem is he doesn’t want them to roam free in the U.S., because he says to us a free press is the ‘enemy of the people’,” Weld, the former governor of Massachusetts, added, noting Trump’s repeated attack on the media.
Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Sunday on CBS “Face the Nation” that he didn’t see intelligence that supported the claim that the four embassies were targeted in potential attacks, but said he shared the president’s view.
The WH is in a time warp, apparently three days in the past…
