The 'Imminent Threat' Conspiracy Theory

Tapper presses Esper: You couldn't say to Congress what Trump said on Fox News

SecDef Esper admits he never saw intelligence showing a threat to U.S. Embassies, but:

"shared the president's view that probably...they were going to go after our embassies."

 

 

General Soleimani helped to save countless villages (Christian, Shia, Sunni, Yazidi & more) from wahhabi terrorists backed by Saudi Arabia & Israel amongst others but he's an "evil guy"......

That's a summary of his interview on Face the Nation [link]. What you've put in quotations isn't said directly but is basically what he says here. He dodges the question about other embassies & the threat to the one in Baghdad is based on a hunch, a lie about Soleimani being behind the recent one, escellating situation etc ... everything BUT actual intel.

 

IMO this "imminent threat" lie was invented after the fact. They tried to kill another top IRGC commander in Yemen at the same time ... seems like they were trying to get a war going.

The recently "killed American" they're pinning on Soleimani was killed at the K-1 airbase. No evidence of who fired the rocket has been made public & it could have been from a number of different groups. The soldier was an Iraqi translator who became a naturalised US citizen in 2018. That's why they don't mention his name. It's Nawres Waleed Hamid.
