Mike Pompeo Reveals What Iranian Terrorist Qasem Soleimani Was Planning That Led To Strike

If Republicans and conservatives knew how to fight the information war, more people would know about this interview posted at the Daily Wire:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Fox News’s Sean Hannity of Friday that Iranian terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani was planning an “imminent” attack — dubbed by the Iranians as “The Big Attack” — that could have killed “hundreds of Americans”

“This was an amazing group — our intelligence community working with the best military on the face of the earth, the best intelligence forces, your State Department, and the president made this decision very quickly in response to what was a real threat,” Hannity said. “What can you tell us?”

“It in fact was an all of government effort directed and led by President Trump. We identified a risk. The president talked about today that Soleimani, the terrorist, was engaged in active plotting,” Pompeo responded. “There was an attack that was imminent that could have killed dozens or hundreds of Americans. We found an opportunity, and we delivered. ”

“We brought all of America’s best and brightest together, found an opportunity, and took this guy — who you described pretty accurately as one of the worst terrorists ever to walk the face of the planet — we took him off the battlefield,” Pompeo continued. “We were successful at eliminating the risk that he would ever conduct a terror campaign anywhere in the world again or that he could put any American at risk one more time.”

Hannity continued by noting President Donald Trump’s words from earlier on Friday, when Trump said, “Soleimani was plotting imminent sinister attacks on American diplomats and military personnel, but we caught him in the act and terminated him.”

“We know the U.S. special representative for Iran, Brian Hook, also confirmed that,” Hannity said. “I was listening very closely to your comments yesterday, and I felt you were saying the same thing. How bad was this potential?”
