Pompeo: We had no evidence of a Soleimani attack, Trump made it all up

RT/Moscow: US President Donald Trump earlier claimed that Washington had eliminated the top Iranian military commander to halt Tehran’s plans to blow up the US Embassy in Baghdad.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on a national broadcast that the United States possessed no information about the date and place of an alleged attack planned by assassinated General Qasem Soleimani.

“We don’t know precisely when – and we don’t know precisely where. But it was real … There was a real opportunity here and there was a real necessity here. We made the right decision. The president made the right call”, Pompeo told Fox News.

On 3 January, IRGC Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani was killed in a targeted US drone attack on the Baghdad International Airport. Washington said that Soleimani was planning to attack US personnel and that by eliminating him “a lot of lives were saved”.

The US earlier designated Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force a terrorist organization.

Iran retaliated for the murder of its top commander with a missile attack that targeted the US military in Iraq. The attack was dubbed Operation Martyr Soleimani and hit the Ayn al-Asad Air Base in western Iraq and American facilities in Erbil. No US personnel were injured in the attack President Trump said in his Wednesday address to the nation…or so the US claims.

Soleimani was a highly respected figure in Iranian politics and was praised for combating a wide range of terrorist groups in the region, including Daesh*. He was also given credit for being an “architect” of the entire Iranian security structure.

  1. When I am asked, “What is your party affiliation?”, I respond with “I am a registered Atheist!
    How could any sort of a “god” allow all of the BS in the world to happen?
    Wars are endless, and hatred abounds. All in with the excuse, “My god is better than your god.”
    As John Lear states emphatically, “There is no god!” I agree!

    In truth, well, I’ll let the readers decide for themselves.
    Or, whatever floats your boat…

  2. THE OTHER BETHLEHEM … AND THE DISGUISE MEN

    As a VT reader for some years now I am occasionally prompted to share articles from other sources I believe are not only relevant but shed the clear light of day on the dark sinister forces pushing the Zio/Con agenda. One name to enter the frame is Daniel Bethlehem – who like a rat rummaging through ordered sacks of grain in a granary, has spent years, legally yet with apparent and inveterate disregard to undermine established laws with maniacal fervor to unleash chaos. Why else would the British Labour government ignore the considered opinion of legal counsel – not just any legal counsel, but the unparralled opinion of the Foreign Office to open the door and bring in someone prepared to do their bidding and support Bush Jr’s Iraq War. Bethlehem – oh yeah, the Irish poet Yates wrote in one of his poems – the Second Coming, “and what rough beast, its hour come round at last and slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?” Take it that the rough beast is none other than the NWO Zio/Con filth and Bethlehem; no not the village where Jesus of ‘peace to all men’ fame but Daniel Bethlehem, Netanyahu and Israel’s point man of war … and chaos. The article is by Craig Murray, former British MP and Diplomat
