Qasem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force who was killed Friday in a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad, had been plotting “imminent attacks” on U.S. facilities in the surrounding region that could have killed hundreds of Americans, a senior U.S. official said Friday.

Brian Hook, the U.S. Special Representative for Iran, said “solid intelligence” informed the administration’s belief that Soleimani was planning attacks on U.S. facilities in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.

“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 told Al Arabiya TV.

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

Soleimani was killed Thursday during a U.S. airstrike at Baghdad International Airport, along with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, founder of the Kata’ib Hezbollah militia, which the administration blames for a rocket attack that killed a U.S. defense contractor at a U.S. military compound in northern Iraq last week.

The Pentagon said Thursday that Soleimani was “actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members” and was “responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more.”

Soleimani also signed off on the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad this week that trapped American diplomats inside the embassy overnight, the Defense Department said. The riots were orchestrated by Shia militia groups that are supported by Iran and that formerly took direction from Soleimani in his role as the head of the Quds Force, which carries out external intelligence collection and paramilitary operations.

The administration plans to deploy 4,000 additional troops to the Middle East in the aftermath of Soleimani’s death.

President Trump defended the strike on Friday, saying the Iranian general was “hated and feared within the country” and “should have been taken out many years ago.”

Iran has vowed “harsh revenge” following the death of the top military general.

Inside the plot by Iran’s Soleimani to attack U.S. forces in Iraq

(Reuters) - In mid-October, Iranian Major-General Qassem Soleimani met with his Iraqi Shi’ite militia allies at a villa on the banks of the Tigris River, looking across at the U.S. embassy complex in Baghdad. 

The Revolutionary Guards commander instructed his top ally in Iraq, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, and other powerful militia leaders to step up attacks on U.S. targets in the country using sophisticated new weapons provided by Iran, two militia commanders and two security sources briefed on the gathering told Reuters. 

The strategy session, which has not been previously reported, came as mass protests against Iran’s growing influence in Iraq were gaining momentum, putting the Islamic Republic in an unwelcome spotlight. Soleimani’s plans to attack U.S. forces aimed to provoke a military response that would redirect that rising anger toward the United States, according to the sources briefed on the gathering, Iraqi Shi’ite politicians and government officials close to Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi. 

Soleimani’s efforts ended up provoking the U.S. attack on Friday that killed him and Muhandis, marking a major escalation of tensions between the United States and Iran. The two men died in air strikes on their convoy at a Baghdad airport as they headed to the capital, dealing a major blow to the Islamic Republic and the Iraqi paramilitary groups it supports. 

 

Interviews with the Iraqi security sources and Shi’ite militia commanders offer a rare glimpse of how Soleimani operated in Iraq, which he once told a Reuters reporter he knew like the back of his hand. 

Two weeks before the October meeting, Soleimani ordered Iranian Revolutionary Guards to move more sophisticated weapons - such as Katyusha rockets and shoulder-fired missiles that could bring down helicopters - to Iraq through two border crossings, the militia commanders and Iraqi security sources told Reuters. 

At the Baghdad villa, Soleimani told the assembled commanders to form a new militia group of low-profile paramilitaries - unknown to the United States - who could carry out rocket attacks on Americans housed at Iraqi military bases. He ordered Kataib Hezbollah - a force founded by Muhandis and trained in Iran - to direct the new plan, said the militia sources briefed on the meetings. 

Soleimani told them such a group “would be difficult to detect by the Americans,” one of the militia sources told Reuters.

I do and I see no proof of the Iranian government acting against us in a very long time.  

 

Sooooo…….

if the Gambino Crime Family hires a crew of mercenaries, like the Gallo bothers, to wipe-out all of your businesses,

then have the Gambinos personally attacked you?  No, according to you, the Gambinos are innocent because it

was 'somebody else' doing the attacking.

 

Same principle applies to the Shia Militias.  Soleimini was the General in charge of the Militias, Hezbollah, Hama,

and the PLO.  All terrorist organizations.    And now he is dead.

We have mutual defense agreements with Israel and Saudi Arabia. Iran has directly attacked them. This dead general trained IED makers. Devices that have killed thousands in Iraq, including hundreds of us soldiers.

He applies the same logic to the dossier. Since Hillary Clinton didn't talk to the Russians for dirt in Trump makes her and the dnc innocent. Weird logic. If you subcontract a crime you are innocent.

That is exactly right!!

The same principle applies to the Shia Militias. 

They are subcontractors.  War by 'proxy'.

  I'm telling the truth you don't like to think about because you think for some odd reason that trump is good. Israel is good.

Must suck to be as wrong as you,know it but yet have to defend your position because you have invested in and been duped by trump.
