’Didn’t see’ specific intelligence about suggested embassy attack, says Esper

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said on Sunday that he did not see intelligence that supported the belief that the slain Iranian general was plotting attacks against four U.S. embassies. Esper said he shared President Trump’s view that planning was underway. ’What the president said was he believed there probably and could’ve been attacks against additional embassies, Esper added.

Intelligence on future attacks or not, taking out Soleimani was a solid score.

Nothing new with this administration. The lies and misinformation pile up, dissonance between what the WH is saying and what other officials are saying. Complete lack of truth or transparency. This is how a narcissist functions because he can't ever accept that anything they are doing or capable of doing is anything other than perfect.

For the record... There's absolutely ZERO requirement for Trump to have knowledge of an imminent attack in order to justify killing Soleimani. If there was, Obama would have been skewered for taking out multiple bad guys with drones.

Like I should be surprised that Spanky Draftdodger Bonespurs has lied for the billionth time.... What's truth in amerikkka at this point? The president of the United States is a liar and a criminal. The attorney general is a liar and Spanky Bonespurs is above the law. It's a damn shame. Full blown shit show. Bribing, killing and lying... amerikkka. Business as usual.

Given his past I would argue SolemnSolami would keep going. He wasnt reformed and changing his ways. The best terrorist is a cold terrorist. Or in this case a rapidly heated and redistributed in portions to a larger area, terrorist.
