posted by Hannity Staff - 1.12.20

President Trump weighed-in on his recent decision to launch a US drone strike against Iranian General Soleimani Friday; saying the commander was actively coordinating attacks on four different American Embassies in the Middle East.

President Trump said in an interview airing Friday that Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani was plotting attacks against four embassies before the U.S. carried out last week’s airstrike that killed the top commander,” reports The Hill.

“I can reveal that I believe it would have been four embassies,” Trump told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham.

 

“Don’t the American people have a right to know what specifically was targeted without revealing methods and sources?” Ingraham asked Trump.

“Well, I don’t think so. But we will tell you that probably it was going to be the Embassy in Baghdad,” Trump replied.

CHAOS IN IRAN: Soleimani Funeral Procession Stampede Leaves 40 Dead, Hundreds Injured

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.07.20

Chaos erupted in southeast Iran Tuesday after a stampede at the funeral procession of General Soleimani left at least 40 dead and hundreds injured.

“At least 40 Iranians were crushed to death Tuesday in a stampede that erupted during the funeral for Qassem Soleimani, the general killed last week in a U.S. airstrike, the country’s state media is reporting,” reports Fox News.

“The gory episode in Soleimani’s hometown of Kerman, which also reportedly left more than 200 injured, came as the U.S. Maritime Administration is warning ships across the Middle East to be on alert for possible retaliatory attacks from Iran,” adds Fox.

“Unfortunately as a result of the stampede, some of our compatriots have been injured and some have been killed during the funeral processions,” Pirhossein Koulivand, the head of Iran’s emergency medical services, told state media.

A similar incident occurred in 1989 at the funeral of Ayatollah Khomeini, when his body was toppled from his coffin on live television.

General Soleimani was killed this week during a US drone strike outside Baghdad International Airport.

ANOTHER SCHIFF SHOW? Adam Schiff Calls for Congressional Hearings Into Trump’s Iraq Airstrike

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.06.20

Congressman Adam Schiff called for more hearings on Capitol Hill Monday regarding President Trump’s military action against a top Iranian General; saying the White House has put the United States “on a path to war.”

“The president has put us on a path where we may be at war with Iran. That requires the Congress to fully engage,” Schiff told the Washington Post.

 

“I’m certainly not satisfied that the intelligence supports the conclusion that the killing of Soleimani was going to either prevent attacks on the United States or reduce the risk to American lives,” Schiff told the Post.

“I don’t think the intelligence was of the kind of character that would lead to a uniform recommendation that Soleimani should be killed,” Schiff added. “I think that was an impulsive judgment made by the president.”
