Terrorists In Iraq Fearing U.S. Targeting: Are Fleeing and Hiding After Soleimani Killing

U.S. officials have intercepted chatter and received confirmation that terrorist leaders in Iraq have been fleeing the region and have gone into hiding fearing United States intelligence capabilities after the successful airstrike that killed Iranian Quds Force leader Qassem Soleimani, according to multiple sources that spoke to SaraACarter.com.

Soleimani, the leader of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s Quds Force, was killed early Friday morning as he stepped off his plane and headed to the SUV at the Baghdad Airport in Iraq. The U.S. developed extraordinary actionable intelligence to target the most wanted terrorist in the world and it was a ‘precision strike’ that caught the Iranian government off guard, said a White House official, who spoke on background due to the sensitive nature of their work.

He was a designated terrorist by the United States but previous administrations, including both Obama and the Bush administrations, stayed clear of targeting him directly fearing possible retaliation from Iran or escalation of war. For twenty years Soleimani operated with impunity directing Iran’s financial purse to terrorist proxies around the world, while also planning Iranian military strategy in the region. His death was an extraordinary blow to the Iranian regime. During the Obama administration he was frequently reported to be traveling throughout the Iraqi region despite sanctions limiting his travel and was working closely with Iranian allies in the Iraq government, said a U.S. official, who works in the region.

Under President Donald Trump the tables have turned. It was apparent that the president was ready to take the action necessary when U.S. intelligence officials informed him that Soleimani was in the planning stages of a strategic attack targeting Americans that was expected to come within days, said a White House official, with knowledge of the airstrike. Trump’s decisive decision to act on the intelligence he was given and to target Soleimani saved countless American lives, the official added.

The White House official added that shortly after the airstrike that killed Soleimani information began to surface that other terrorist leaders in the region were ‘fleeing,’ and others had gone into hiding.

And on Wednesday, as Trump addressed the nation, woven into his words was the warning to terrorists in the region that Soleimani was only one of many terror leaders U.S. officials are monitoring in effort to prevent attacks on U.S. assets, the homeland and Americans overseas.

A former senior military official, who now works in the region, told SaraACarter.com that “President Trump’s decision to put American contractors and military personnel first was a reversal from the Obama administration’s position and is going to save more American lives than people realize.” ‘ “He has put our nation first,” the former military official said. “We’re respected and we’ll be safer because of it – it’s already working, terrorists are hearing the message loud and clear.”

Then it’s time to bring charges against Obama, if he was known by “senior officials” to be aiding Iranian terrorist enterprises.

When is the rule of law going to be reinstated?

Here’s a conspiracy theory. Soleimani was set up by his own government and our people were informed that the weak rocket attack that followed would happen before he was even whacked.

they realize that arriving in 72 pieces to meet 72 virgins isn’t much of a reward...

The damage to the Democrats money laundering scheme is incalculable. The damage to the “protection” schemes that the Dems sell to foreign countries has taken a huge blow.

“Here’s a conspiracy theory. Soleimani was set up by his own government and our people were informed that the weak rocket attack that followed would happen before he was even whacked.”

But why? If Iran wanted Soleimani did, they could have easily taken care of it themselves in some way, and then blamed it on The Jew (Israel), or something.

As to the fireworks show last night...yea, I can believe that Trump and the Mullahs had a talk (through a third party, like Canada) agreeing to it, as a way to reduce tension, by giving the Mullahs a way out. Trump’s very non-angry statement that no Americans were hurt and implying that the ‘attack’ didn’t even bother him, led me to that conclusion.

The man who killed Soleimani, he was the bravest of them all.

The terrorists are terrified? Democrats will seek to ban retro-terrorism.

When is the rule of law going to be reinstated?

When We the People rise up and take our country back from the lying liberals, black booted robes and the illegals that have invaded our country.
