Pompeo Falls Flat On His Face Trying To Defend Claim Suleimani Assassination Was Due To ‘Imminent’ Threat

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared before the press on Tuesday where he could not specifically point out what “imminent threats” Donald Trump was referring to when he tried to justify the assassination of Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani.

Pompeo could only say there were “multiple pieces of information” that were presented to Trump to justify the killing of Soleimani, who is widely considered to be a terrorist. He claimed there were “continuing efforts on behalf of this terrorist to build out a network of campaign activities that were going to lead potentially to the death of many more Americans.”

That would not be an “imminent” threat.

“We know what happened at the end of last year in December, ultimately leading to the death of an American. If you are looking for immanence, you need look no further than the days that led up to the strike,” Pompeo added.
