Report: Iran planned assassination of prominent US general

Iran’s military leaders planned an attack against U.S. Army base Fort McNair in Washington, D.C., and an assassination attempt of Gen. Joseph M. Martin, the Vice Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, according to a report released by U.S. intelligence.

The National Security Agency intercepted discussion from Iran’s Quds force in January following the U.S. killing of Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad in January 2020. The intercepted conversations included plans to attack Fort McNair with “USS Cole-style attacks.”

The USS Cole attack referred to the October 2000 suicide attack in which a small boat pulled up alongside the Navy destroyer in the Yemeni port of Aden and exploded, killing 17 sailors.

The threat has added to discussion from city leaders opposing the Army’s plan to add a buffer zone of about 250 feet to 500 feet from the shore of the Washington Channel. The change would limit access of up to half the width of the area running parallel to the Potomac River.

Iran’s plans for revenge of Gen. Soleimani were a top security concern in January. The U.S. military killed Iran’s top general and the architect of Tehran’s proxy wars in the Middle East in an airstrike at Baghdad’s international airport early on Jan. 3, 2020.

In January 2020, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned a “harsh retaliation is waiting” for the U.S.

Iranian state TV carried a statement by Khamenei that called Soleimani “the international face of resistance.” Khamenei declared three days of public mourning for the general’s death.

Despite threats of retaliation on the one-year anniversary of Gen. Soleimani’s death, January 2021 passed without public attack on U.S. soldiers or bases. The report of a planned attack revealed that plans are ongoing.

Former President Donald Trump strongly opposed Iran’s plans and ended involvement in Iran’s nuclear deal. President Joe Biden has discussed reinstating the Iranian plan, though no direct talks have taken place.

Is OUR defense up to speed to match or NO due to CRT teaching?

Our NEW President Biden is NOT UP TO doing anything in the defense of this country.

Regrettably, you are correct. Sleepy, Creepy, Uncle Joe, I think, has trouble finding his way to the bathroom to “pee”, much less governing this, what used to be, a great country. That’s why Kamel Toes Harris is vice president, to take over when Sleepy, Creepy’s dementia gets so bad he can’t remember who he is or what he is supposed to do.

Iran is a lot of talk. They didn’t dare make a move while Trump was in office because they knew what would happen if they did. Now, with Biden in office, they haven’t a clue as to what he would do and frankly, no one else does either. The USA is not very stable at the moment and could ignite WW111 at any moment, unfortunately. The American people surely do not want this, but our current Administration does not care what the American people want. So our voices are not being heard. In due time, things will change. Maybe real soon.

Biden is a whimp. He’s giving everything American away trying to buy his way into the good graces of the world. The world sees him as weak and incompetent. I doubt that he would do anything to retaliate if Iran were to attack anyone on American soil. Neither would president designate Harris.

If you look at past history, the Democraps & Rinos have been plotting wars for years. It’s good for their stock portfolio! Trump got us out of promoting wars, but was such a strong leader, no other country would dare “F” with us! With China Joe at the helm, all these other countries are liable to start taking shots at us, since they know Bathouse Barry’s “Red Line” means nothing. Everybody knows this is just another 4 years of failed Obozo policies.

Would the Iranians have considered such a plan if Trump were still our leader? I doubt it. Much like I doubt the North Koreans would have been firing missiles. Biden has shown his willingness to weakness and appeasement to the world and is now paying the price for that weakness.

As a veteran In my opinion if Iran launched an attack on a general in this country we should return the favor with tomahawks through the doors and windows of head cleric and their presidents palace. The people of Iran would appreciate it

Joe Biden (Obama minime), Pelosi, Schumer, and Kamala Harris = Combined National Security Threat to America! They’re creating a Holocaust situation in America, with those ridiculous Bill’s that they are pushing through Congress, and wasting billions of taxpayers dollars in the process.

At what point, does our military step in, and say “THAT’s ENOUGH!” The American Patriots of this country… Those that really matter, demand justice!

So many years this has been, cheating was ok. It never was and it can never be. As Americans, don’t you all think it’s time to unite as a Nation, help our neighbors, friends and anyone who needs leg up. Americans as I always knew them were not as lazy, and greedy as they are now. And have been for many years. So what are we going to do let the corrupt government overtake US. NO.

Susan,
The last, greedy Americans you speak of were created by the hand out artists our Demorats politicians have bdcome. They want as many people beholding to them as possible, therefore they stack the deck in their favor. This is the reason for the mess at the border, potential Democrstic voters.
