Iran ASSASSINATION Response Reported – Are We In Danger?
(FeaturedNews.com) – Iran is not an ally of the United States – relations with the country have been under strain for some time due to the nation’s ties to terrorism. When former President Donald Trump ordered a strike to prevent attacks against the US, it led to the death of a revered Iranian military general. During a testimony in front of the Senate Armed Service Committee on May 10, Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines stated Iran might launch a plot against the US in retaliation for the assassination of military leader Qassem Soleimani in 2020.

High-ranking officials from the Trump White House have been in the crosshairs of threats coming from within Iran, primarily motivated by revenge for the general’s death. The government has had to provide extra security for former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former State Department Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook, and former national security adviser John Bolton.
Despite the threats, the Biden administration continues to pursue a nuclear deal with Iran. President Biden wants to reinstate an agreement similar to the one reached under President Barack Obama in 2015, which Trump ended in 2018. Making matters worse, Newsweek recently reported that administration officials may consider removing Iran from the Sponsors of Terrorism list and sanction relief.
