Soleimani Was Planning Imminent Attacks to Kill Americans

A top US official has admitted that General Qasem Soleimani, the leader of the regime’s elite Quds Force and the country’s second most powerful figure was planning imminent attacks that could have killed hundreds of Americans.

Per the Daily Caller:
 

The planned attacks would have targeted American facilities and workers in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and other countries, U.S. Special representative for Iran Brian Hook told Al Arabiya TV, according to Reuters.

“The President’s first responsibility is the safety of the American people. Qasem Soleimani was plotting imminent attacks in the region against Americans in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon that could have resulted in the deaths of hundreds of people,” Hook said.

“The President has a constitutional responsibility to prevent those actions from killing Americans. He took an entirely lawful action,” he added. “I have seen all of the intelligence that supports the decision. It was very solid intelligence.”

The Pentagon announced in the immediate aftermath of the airstrike that Soleimani was behind the recent attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq, and was “actively developing” additional plans to attack American diplomats and service members in the region. 

The strike is aimed at deterring future Iranian attacks. Today, the US Embassy in Baghdad is urging American citizens to leave Iraq immediately.
