In the immediate aftermath of the drone strike on Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo rushed to the fake news media to claim that Iran was plotting an imminent attack against the United States.
“He was actively plotting in the region to take actions – a big action as he described it — that would have put dozens if not hundreds of American lives at risk. We know it was imminent,” Pompeo said during an appearance on CNN following Soleimani’s assassination.
Pompeo claimed that the strike on Soleimani outside of a Baghdad airport prevented Iran from committing an imminent attack against U.S. interests.
“These were threats that were located in the region,” Pompeo said. “Last night was the time that we needed to strike to make sure that this imminent attack … was disrupted.”
“What was sitting before us was his travels throughout the region, his efforts to make a significant strike against Americans,” Pompeo said during another appearance on Fox News.
“There would have been many Muslims killed as well, Iraqis and people in other countries,” he added.
However, the Pentagon has come out – less than two weeks later – and admitted the obvious that Pompeo misled the American people about an imminent attack being plotted by Soleimani and Iran.
U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on Sunday that there was no specific evidence showing that Iran was planning to attack the U.S. before the Soleimani strike, and there was no evidence that Soleimani’s demise prevented any attack from taking place.
“What the president said was that there probably could be additional attacks against embassies. I shared that view,” Esper said during an episode of CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
“The president didn’t cite a specific piece of evidence,” he added.
When pressed about whether or not any evidence exists, Esper finally admitted that he has never come across it.
“I didn’t see one with regards to four embassies,” he said, referencing a comment made by President Trump.
Under the counsel of Pompeo, Trump has also referenced the non-existent evidence of the imminent attack that was being plotted by Iran before Soleimani was assassinated.
“We will tell you probably it was going to be the embassy in Baghdad,” Trump said on Friday. “I can reveal that I believe it would have been four embassies.”
Pompeo has been manipulating Trump with dubious intelligence to goad him into waging war with Iran for quite some time, despite the fact that the President ran for higher office on the platform of bringing troops home from the Middle East.
This is not the only time that Pompeo has been caught being dishonest with the American people. He has stated on the record that he is proud to be a manipulator, and serve the deep state by spreading propaganda on behalf of the military-industrial complex.
“What’s the cadet motto at West Point? You will not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do. I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole. It’s — it was like — we had entire training courses. It reminds you of the glory of the American experiment,” Pompeo said to a group of students at Texas A&M University on April 15.
“Diplomacy and military strike go hand in hand,” Pompeo said at the same event, showing how he is an “America Last” warmonger. “They are indeed intimately related; each relies on the other.”
Before he wormed his way into the administration, Pompeo compared Trump to former President Barack Obama and pushed for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) to win the 2016 Republican nomination for the presidency.

INSANE: Engineer Ran Train Off Tracks to Damage Coronavirus HOSPITAL SHIP
An unthinkable act of possible terrorism.
A Los Angeles engineer reportedly derailed a train, sending it in the direction of the hospital ship USNS Mercy with the hopes of damaging the vessel Tuesday.
Eduardo Moreno of San Pedo is being charged with one count of train wrecking.
Prosecutors are claiming that Moreno was intentionally trying to damage the hospital ship. They allude to the possibility of Moreno being a conspiracy theorist of some sort, evidently believing that the hospital ship was going to be used for nefarious purposes.
Moreno is said to have crashed a Pacific Harbor Line train, running it off the rails and sending it careening through a barricade to the Port of Los Angeles’ docks. The train crashed through several barriers and fences, crossing over two gravel parking lots. It ceased moving before reaching the Mercy, coming to rest just before the Vincent Thomas Bridge.
No one was injured from the derailing of the train, but a leakage of fuel from the machine required a hazmat team to respond to the incident.
Moreno allegedly told investigators that he was “suspicious” of the ship, not believing that “the ship is what they say it’s for.” The locomotive engineer reportedly went on to say that “you only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don’t know what’s going on here. Now they will.”
A Department of Justice press release on Moreno’s arrest and criminal charge describes the man as admitting to derailing the train with the intention of damaging the ship.
The Mercy docked at the Port of Los Angeles over the weekend. The vessel in present in the area to assist in containment measures for the Chinese coronavirus epidemic, in a similar fashion to the hospital ship USNS Comfort’s presence in New York City.
Derailing a train with the intention of damaging a hospital ship is an extreme criminal act, to put it lightly. The incident may have possible terrorist ramifications if it’s made clear that Moreno wanted to damage the ship for overt political purposes.
Big League Politics will continue to monitor this situation.
Video surfaced of the halted train and the damage it inflicted on the municipal docks on Tuesday.
