The media named Soleimani as the initiator of the liquidation

Pompeo offered to liquidate Soleimani, according to the media

The Iranian general has been “the main target” of Secretary of State Pompeo for a decade, the media say.

The idea to eliminate Iranian General Qassem Soleimani was presented by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. This was stated by sources from the Pentagon, reports CNN.

It is noted that Soleimani has been Pompeo's “main goal” for a decade. The secretary of state allegedly waited for the case to offer President Donald Trump to destroy the Iranian general.

The head of the agency allegedly believes Tehran is “the root of all problems in the Middle East”. Pentagon sources added that in 2016, as a congressman in Kansas, Pompeo was trying to get a visa to Iran to track down Soleimani. “However, this does not mean that [Pompeo] has a personal account with the general. After all, he really was a terrorist,” CNN quotes sources.

Earlier Pompeo said that the U.S. intelligence agencies did not have information about possible attacks, which allegedly planned the killed Iranian general. “There is no doubt that there was a whole series of impending attacks, which was planned by Qasem Soleimani. “We don't know exactly when, and we don't know exactly where. But it was real,” he said.

Recall that the situation in Iraq deteriorated sharply after the U.S. conducted an operation near Baghdad airport, which killed Soleimani.

Rocket attack on the convoy, in which the commander followed, was carried out on the personal order of Trump.

In response, Iran on the night of January 8, fired ground-to-ground missiles at two bases in Iraq, where the U.S. military contingent is located. Trump said the Americans and Iraqis were not harmed by the strikes.
