Former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani died Sunday after he was hospitalized for a heart condition, according to Iranian state media. He was 82.
Rafsanjani was a heavyweight behind Iran’s nuclear program and pushed for nuclear weapons.
He was an influential power broker in the Islamic Republic who advised the country’s supreme leader.
He was a central player in the Islamic Revolution and was alleged to be behind numerous terror attacks. He openly called for the killing of Americans and other Westerners.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani reportedly visited Rafsanjani in the hospital and a short time later the former president was dead, FOX reports.
Rafsanjani, who served as president from 1989 to 1997, was a leading politician who has often played kingmaker in the country’s turbulent politics. He supported Rouhani.
Nicknamed “The Shark,” Rafsanjani was also nefarious for purging political opponents and intellectuals.
Rafsanjani was the current head of the Expediency Council, a body that advises Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and in March he won a seat on a clerical body that will one day decide Khamenei’s successor.
Rot in hell bastard.
