Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Sunday on Face The Nation that he "didn't see" specific evidence showing Iran was planning to attack four U.S. embassies as President Trump claimed last week during an interview with Laura Ingraham.
From The New York Times, "Esper Says He Saw No Evidence Iran Targeted 4 Embassies, as Story Shifts Again":
They had to kill him because he was planning an "imminent" attack. But how imminent they could not say. Where they could not say. When they could not say. And really, it was more about what he had already done. Or actually it was to stop him from hitting an American embassy. Or four embassies. Or not.National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien was asked Sunday by Chris Wallace why Trump was able to reveal alleged intelligence on Soleimani's plots to Laura Ingraham but not congress.
O'Brein said he'd "love" to show Americans their "very strong" intelligence but to do so would cause them to "lose that valuable stream of intelligence going forward."
"I can tell you they can trust the administration on this," O'Brein said.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday that there was "no doubt" Iranian General Qassem Soleimani was planning "a series of imminent attacks" but they just didn't know precisely "when" or "where."
"There is no doubt that there were a series of imminent attacks that were being by plotted by Soleimani," Pompeo said. "We don't know precisely when and we don't know precisely where -- but it was real."
