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.

      1. 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.

    1. Single Mom Makes $89,844/Yr in Her Spare Time on The Computer Without Selling Anything. you can bring from $5000-$8000 of extra income every month. working at home for 4 hours a day, and earning could be even bigger.

      The potential with this is endless…>>>>> http://www.works91.com

  1. 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.

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. How true. This is such a dysfunctional country. I am amazed the intercepted the information and that is sad to say

  2. 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.

    1. Unfortunately for us, ”WE” are the ones that will pay for biden’s weakness. He’ll just go hide in his basement and leave us totally unprotected! Certainly this is grounds for impeachment on grounds of treason!

  3. 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

  4. Right on Joe from Ga., we at MDAC-FMP, FL built those sweet gen 1 Tomahawks, the Dragon and Cruise Missiles, then Slick Willie sold us out….

  5. Biden needs to be impeached, after Harris
    Is impeached , the sooner the better !!
    Let’s get to it “republicans”.
    How much damage to this country will be
    Allowed ?????
    The American people are sick of watching
    The evil demonrats get away with all their
    Corruption!

    1. Problem is; after Joe comes Kamala and then, God forbid, Pelosi. We don’t get to Republicans until 2024.

      1. well mary i think we get some republicans in 2022 and just enough to stop a lot of their bs rules and regulations by taking back senate and house

  6. Mark, I agree 100%…We have to be very careful in what we wish for. I still think Pres. Trump was the duly elected president. The Biden presidency was bought and paid for by billionaire globalists that hate the USA>

  7. Among the very most-clueless as to what to do are Joe Biden and Kamala Harris!
    How stupid and scary is that!

  8. 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!

  9. OK IT IS TIME TO ELIMINATE THE USELESS STATE OF IRAN >: THEY WANT A NUCLEAR WEAPON> WELL WE CAN DROP TWO OF THEM RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF IRAN BUT MORE POWERFUL THAN THE TWO THAT WAS DROP ON JAPAN> DUE IT TO MORROW>:

  10. Tom First we have to fix the corrupt voting system and regain voting integrity. If we don’t elections won’t matter.

    1. YES PAT>>>>Finally the pure truth is being spoken. The election Integrity much be regained or nothing else will or could possibly matter.
      Why in the World are the Republicans not even speaking of this? Makes you wonder?

  11. Back in the late 80’s Oliver North tried to warn our government about Osama bin Laden. When asked who was the threat, and he told them…they laughed at him.
    So, it would pay to be very careful when threatened by any Muslim…they are bat$#!+ crazy.

  12. 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.

    1. 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.

  13. Biden has bee a lying fool all his life. For decades he has promised the black folks how much good he was going to do for them. Never did any thing except He told a young man that if he did not vote for him he was not BLACK. Well that seems very racist to me. Why did we elect this MORON.?
