Pompeo Admitted that Washington Had No Accurate Information on Soleimani’s Plans
OREANDA-NEWS. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo admitted that the country’s government did not have accurate information about where and when Iranian General Qasem Soleimani was planning attacks on American citizens.
At the same time, Pompeo expressed confidence that Soleimani was preparing a "series of imminent attacks.” “We don’t know precisely when – and we don’t know precisely where. But it was real,” Pompeo said in a conversation with a Fox News journalist on January 9.
Being asked whether Suleimani really planned to blow up the American embassy, as President Donald Trump declared earlier, Pompeo answered that forces related to Iranian general attacked the diplomatic mission in Iraq last year.
The head of the State Department emphasized that Trump made the right decision when ordered to kill Soleimani.
