One of the indicted individuals is nicknamed "Haci Qaqa."  Based on my admittedly limited knowledge of Romance languages, if the nickname is based in Romanian or something, the nickname means something like "Turdmaker", or "I have to Poop."

My google skill have told me that Haci Qaqa translated to English is Haci Qaqa. Boy, were you way off.

They can stop the Iranians but not future insurrections?

Good job

The Iranians didn't pay off the right folks. The GOP did.

I prefer movie assassins. Killers-for-hire in real life are scary, but always like these bozos. Snapping selfies, putting stuff in writing, bragging online. They always have "plans" like: "Okay, I'm going to go up and knock on her door. When she answers, I'm going to ask about her garden. She'll invite me in. While she's getting me tea, I'll take a quick shower and plant a bomb in her toilet. It's foolproof."

These sorts of things seem to always be overelaborate.

How hard would it have been for the assasins to fly-in somewhere kind of distant to the actual target, buy or steal an off-the-books gun or two (gun show loophole anyone?), then drive to new york to carry out their hit, then disposing of the gun and driving out to fly-out from some other distant airport.

One can't just shoot James Bond. One must strap him down and slowly threaten castration with a laser beam.

If you consider a stern talking to and a firm "don't do it again" a free pass.

When these happen in real life, Iran doesn't want their fingerprints all over it. They're not going to provide operational support.

It's more like someone in government knows the people who run this gang, so they point out how it would be a good idea if this woman were dead. The gang does the dirty work of the government and in return they get favorable treatment. The rest of it is basically a classic hit job but they do provide a lot of information to their superiors and that's obviously evidence against them later.

She clearly knows what's up and is watching her back. Seems like she needs some security.

Contrary to popular cultural depictions, people who get jobs as killers for hire aren't generally known for making wise life choices.

Ironic given that Soleimani's primary job was arranging assassinations in foreign countries.

I mean, if you're ok with a lame assassination, fine. Just don't talk shiat when everyone else has more style points.

if they are really good or kill someone a government was supposed to protect would we hear about it?

That being said I assume post cold war that skill set has been less in demand and the internet has made keeping yourself off the radar harder

Considering this all started with a traffic stop of the assassin after he'd been on the prowl for his target for some time, I'd say we got lucky.
