US President Donald Trump earlier claimed that Washington had eliminated the top Iranian military commander to halt Tehran’s plans to blow up the US Embassy in Baghdad.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on a national broadcast that the United States possessed no information about the date and place of an alleged attack planned by assassinated General Qasem Soleimani.
“We don’t know precisely when – and we don’t know precisely where. But it was real … There was a real opportunity here and there was a real necessity here. We made the right decision. The president made the right call”, Pompeo told Fox News.
