According to Russian satellite news agency, US Secretary of State Pompeo said on the National Radio Station that the United States did not know the date and location of Suleimani ’s attack on the hairdressing.
"New York Times" and other mainstream US media reports that on the 9th local time, US President Trump voiced the assassination of senior Iranian military officer Suleimani, saying that "he tried to blow up the US embassy in Iraq."
However, the United States is skeptical of this statement. Politico magazine noted that Trump remains vague about the "threat." The threat appeared to have put the United States and Iran on the brink of war before Trump tried to ease tensions in his speech on the 8th.
The Trump administration has been sharply accused by Democrats, and even anti-interventionist Republican lawmakers have been sharply criticized for refusing to disclose potential intelligence to prove that Suleimanni is planning imminent U.S. military and diplomats in the region Attack.
Trump declined to share more details of the “suspected attack on the embassy” and publicly answered follow-up questions about the issue by suggesting evidence of such a conspiracy. Trump mentioned that a few days before the assassination of Suleimani, protesters were raiding in front of the U.S. ambassador to Baghdad in Iraq. American media said that although Trump's words were not clear, it seemed to indicate that these protesters were trying to blow up the embassy. A spokesman for the White House and the National Security Council did not immediately respond.
Several Democratic lawmakers said that on the 8th, a closed-door intelligence briefing meeting held by senior administrative officials did not mention the possible bombing of the embassy. Adam Smith, chairman of the U.S. House of Arms Committee, said he found no evidence, although that doesn't mean the evidence doesn't exist.
US Senator Richard Blumenthal stated that "the Trump administration has used Congress as a cover to keep Congress and the American people in darkness", and said that Trump's remarks and those provided in a Senate brief The information is inconsistent. (Sea.wai.net.Li.Meng)
