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.

Pompeo has become the most duplicious and dangerous subversive element within the White House.
Biden Shadow Secretary of State Urged Support of Iraq War in 2002
Meet the new boss, the same as the old boss.
Joe Biden is yet to be certified as the President-elect, but that hasn’t stopped from from touting tentative cabinet picks.
Without exception, his cabinet appears to be largely liberal globalists with a lengthy track record of supporting the failed policy proposals of the 2000’s and 1990’s.
Biden’s Secretary of State pick, Antony Blinken, urged the then-Delaware Senator to support the disastrous Iraq War as a policy advisor to Biden in 2002.
Blinken advised Biden to vote for the Iraq War. Also said US failed by not sending more troops to Syria. https://t.co/BisdYmdAuN

Blinken would go on to create an establishment political consulting company that secured cozy lobbying deals with Big Tech and a pharmaceutical giant during Donald Trump’s presidency.
TONY BLINKEN co-founded a consultancy @WEAdvisors that launched in 2018 to help clients navigate DC.
It doesn’t disclose most clients’ identities, but has acknowledged working with an unidentified drug maker & a Big Tech firm it helped with US-China trade https://t.co/cj4mKJbnBM

Journalist Glen Greenwald pointed to Blinken as a textbook example of a neoliberal corporate Democrat, infamous for touting a Beltway elite agenda largely disliked by the general public. In similar fashion to neocon warhawk John Bolton, it appears that Blinken’s support for the most disastrous foreign policy mistake in American history isn’t going to prevent him from sauntering into the avenues of power, if he ends up getting confirmed as a President Biden’s Secretary of State.

Blinken would go on to support Barack Obama’s disastrous regime change operation in the 2011 Libyan Civil War, setting up the North African country for a decade of instability and eventually becoming a trafficking hub for exploited migrants seeking to reach Europe. Blinken was a National Security Advisor to the Vice President at the time.
If Biden ends up getting inaugurated, President Donald Trump will become the first US president in decades not to engage the United States in a new foreign conflict in office. (Bill Clinton and Barack Obama instigated US involvement in wars in Yugoslavia and Libya respectively.
