@SecPompeo @HouseForeign "It shouldn't have been so difficult to get you here," @HouseForeign Chair @RepEliotEngel to @SecPompeo says he's disappointed Secretary of State visit to Capitol Hill is so short and took so long to set up following US airstrike on #Soleimani
@SecPompeo @HouseForeign @RepEliotEngel Ranking member @RepMcCaul says the president acted with enormous restraint as #iran attacked US assets and was entirely within his rights to order the airstrike on #Soleimani

1. King & Heir of Saudi Arabia
Flipped Confirmation: November-2017

Long in depth deconstruction of the flip including military anon's.
2. Xi Jinping/China
Flipped Confirmation: June 2019
I realized they flipped thru comms in middle of thread so it starts oddly. Initially I decoded it as July 2019 but further digging revealed the real confirmation was two weeks earlier (also in thread)
3. Queen of England/Royals
Handlers Removed: January-2019
Flipped Confirmation: June-2019
Symbolism comms + actual events afterwards (Queen helping out Brexit) demonstrate that this one is a certainty.

1-Since my brother's arrest on Sept 23, I wake up every morning & feel a void. I used to talk to him daily & now he's in Iran’s notorious Evin prison. History will write this. My brother is jailed as he refused to disown me. The regime has arrested my brother due to my activities
2-The regime deceitfully uses the charges of “campaigning against the system” and “insulting the supreme leader” to justify my brother’s imprisonment. The same regime that mercilessly killed 176 innocent people aboard Ukrainian Airlines plane while wanting to hit the Americans.
3-We’re talking about the same regime that mercilessly killed more than 1500 people in the streets of Iran during November 2019’s #IranProtests. The same regime that shut down the internet for more than 7 days while massacring these people in the streets.

A businessman who once was export manager of #IRGC's Kerman Motor in #UAE was falsely represented as a Strategic Studies Analyst by #ManotoTV, an #Iranian opposition TV! Few days ago, he was also interviewed by #BBCPersian! He has not written an article in his life! Who is he?!🤔
How on earth someone attends in a meeting against #Iran's Islamic Regime with #FakhrAvar & Saghar Kasraee in 2012! And just three years later, he is being appointed as export manager of #IRGC's Kerman Motor in #UAE?! It is strange! May be this guy is a double agent?!
Real political & strategic studies analysts such as Mahnaz Shirali, Scientology University Professor might boycott #ManotoTV over inviting people like #FarbodTalaee who pretends to be an analyst (in fact is a businessman who cooperated with #IRGC).

We had a lot of important commentary and analysis this week.

Below👇is the complete roundup.

But we thought to highlight a few very special pieces starting with ...

2.

"If you understand the Justice Department, the damage has already been done. The reputation and credibility of the Justice Department has been dealt a significant blow."

- Lisa Monaco, former Assistant to the President and worked for Reno and Mueller

3. Unredacted Ukraine emails newly obtained by Just Security:

"They also expose the extent to which OMB misled, and even lied to, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), a congressional investigative body."

“A fundamental revision of existing legal foundations for military action against Iran that can be undertaken by this and future presidents.”

My take on NEW—and legally flawed—White House report on actions against #Iran and #Soleimani strike.

justsecurity.org/68594/white-ho…
2. New White House report conspicuously drops any reference to “imminence” of Soleimani threat.

What's at stake: This means the White House is claiming authority to strike #Iran again with no threat of imminent attack (and with no prior congressional authority).
3. White House report suggests US can hold Iran directly responsible for “support” to militias.

What’s at stake: That's a heck of a low threshold and could boomerang.

Does Trump want US to be held directly responsible for support to Syrian Kurds, for Saudi bombing in #YemenWar?

Alam al-Hoda was in 1980, and played a direct role in the suppression, execution and murder of a large number of young people and dissidents also played a major role in the suppression of the January 2018 and November 2019 uprisings in Mashhad.

Since early 1990s, #IRGC has given special quota to #Basij militias in #Iran's top universities to suppress anti-reigme student protests. Many of them have joined #Ashoora brigades to take revenge of #Soleimani's death! #ShahabDehghani is one of them who is arrested in the #US!
#DeportBasijis hashtag has now gone viral & Iranian dissidents ask #US government & security forces to arrest & deport those #Basij university students who are sent to the #US to study using #IRGC's scholarship program. These Basijis have abused real Iranian elite students.
His name is Sajjad Soltan-Mohammadi. He is an #IRGC's #Basij militiaman who took part in protest against #US Border Protection Force over arrest of Mohammad-Shahab Dehghani Azar in Logan airport last night.

Told Aljazeera's @arwaib that under the new IRGC-QF cmdr Esmail Qaani, "the same policies are expected to continue, but perhaps with greater vigour and ruthlessness now that US maximum pressure on #Iran seems to involve 'leadership decapitation'" as well.
aljazeera.com/indepth/featur…
@arwaib Pointing out that in addition to intelligence leaks, #Soleimani's celebrity status may have contributed to his assassination, so Qaani is expected to be #Iran's real "shadow commander".

"The #IRGC will do its best not to be bitten in the same spot again."
@arwaib "Although it is unclear when Qaani joined the Quds Force, Iranian media said he was appointed as the unit's deputy in 1997, the same year that #Soleimani was appointed as its commander. But according to Behravesh, that appointment came years later, in 2007."

Quand #Trump narre par le menu à des gros donateurs lors d'1 levée de fonds en Floride l'exécution de #Soleimani, le fait marquant n'est pas tant le flou des motifs. Il est dans 1 président d'1 #démocratie qui rend compte seulement à ceux qui (le) paient. washingtonpost.com/politics/trump…
2) Et aussi choquant pour certains soit ce mépris de #Trump pour le secret-défense, relatif à sa personnalité, il disparaîtra avec lui. Mais que des présidents en exercice soient contraints pour leur réélection d'aller "faire les beaux" auprès de milliardaires pourrait bien durer
3) Du point de vue du financement politique comme socle de la démocratie US, #Trump n'est qu'1 symptôme- et non la cause- d'1 dérégulation complète depuis 20 ans et la loi McCain/Feingold de 2002, dernier vain essai bipartisan pour limiter l'influence de l'argent en politique…

I most highly recommend reading this new article for deep understanding of serious concerns about #Soleimani strike.

The author: @Mpolymer—served in Trump administration until mid-2019, CIA Senior Intelligence Service

Several powerful points...
justsecurity.org/68094/how-to-t…
2. This alone is chilling coming from @Mpolymer:

"The U.S. and Iran are at the brink of open conflict and face years of asymmetric warfare because of the Soleimani killing."

- Marc Polymeropoulos, former CIA Senior Intelligence Service (retired June 2019)
3. Serious reasons to be concerned President Trump's (unquenchable) desire for chest thumping about Soleimani strike has endangered U.S. national security

"a secret strike would deny the president the ability to thump his chest"

- @Mpolymer former senior CIA (retired June 2019)

Thread: As I’ve been talking to #Iranians in #Iran over the last couple weeks, some family & others friends I came to know over course of my yrs of field research in Iran, I’ve collected some of the more illuminating, interesting & at times heartbreaking comments 👇🏽
“After the nuclear deal we should’ve been flying in new Boeing planes, not shooting them down. How far we have fallen is truly sorrowful. From the hope of a different future, a moment of change, to not only broken promises, but what feels like darker days from the past”
“More than anything I’m scared. I believed in nuclear deal, it gave me hope for a better future & #Iran abided by it. It seems like we were punished for that. Now I’m scared of war & what might become of us. Iraq, Libya, Syria? The examples around us are grim”

A true *Must Read* on #Iran #Soleimani strike

Former senior CIA official (@douglaslondon5) goes on the record

Served President Trump and CIA Directors Pompeo, Haspel

"I often struggled in persuading the president to recognize the most important threats"
justsecurity.org/68072/the-pres…
@douglaslondon5 2. Most important paragraphs on #Soleimani strike.👇

Former senior CIA official explains how Trump officials (including anonymous officials speaking to press) may selectively pick intelligence to create false narrative of the threat posed prior to strike.
@douglaslondon5 3. "The Trump administration appears to have cherry-picked information from the broader intelligence to support its actions."

President @realDonaldTrump rally in Milwaukee, WI.

#Soleimani what is the king of roadside bombs. There’s a great percentage of people missing arms and legs because of this son of a bitch.
President Trump says he made a mistake. He should’ve said he didn’t want a wall because they always want to do the opposite of anything he says. #BuildTheWall
We are building the wall very rapidly. Very soon it should be up to 1 mile a day and over 400 miles by the end of the year. #TrumpRallyMilwaukee

I've been thinking of this whole #Soleimani event, and I'm going to share my opinion. I want to make clear it is only my speculation based on the many various data points that we all absorb and process.

I think it's possible Qasem Soleimani was taken out weeks ago.

We may just be watching the "public movie" instead of the real deal.
Why do I say this when I can't point to any hard evidence?
In my mind, I keep going back to the NYT article [leak] on hypersonic weapons, released hours before the #BaghdadAirportAttack

If you are Mil Intel and are planning an attack on one of the top #Iranian targets, and the premier bulletin board for the deep state reveals your plans before they happen, would you just shrug it off and continue on as if nothing was leaked?

January 15: State Department's Acting Legal Adviser briefs the Senate in classified setting on #Iran.

Three key things he told the Senate (#SFRC) in 2019 on president's power to use force against Iran...

2. In 2019, the Acting Legal Adviser promised the Senate the administration would submit a PUBLIC, UNCLASSIFIED report if the administration’s position on Iran changed

Read expert analysis from @ritasiemion and @BenjaminEHaas on the 30-Day Clock:

justsecurity.org/68025/the-30-d…
@ritasiemion @BenjaminEHaas 3. In 2019, the Acting Legal Adviser told @SenJeffMerkley international law constrains Trump's Article II authority to use force against Iran.

Top legal scholars now write that #Soleimani #Shahlai strikes failed the test.

.@LeeSmithDC tells @IngrahamAngle #Soleimani was in many ways the corner stone of the Iran nuclear agreement made by the Obama administration.
.@LeeSmithDC keep in mind when you’re hearing democrat officials and the media they have a vested interest in protecting Obama‘s foreign policy legacy. When Obama signed the deal they wasn’t stopping Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. They was preventing it during his term.
.@IngrahamAngle wants everyone to understand that the United States former Secretary of State was on national TV siding with the Iranians instead of with the US. Just let that sink in.

.@SecPompeo showing his support for the Iranian protesters.
#Soleimani what is the biggest terrorist in the world. The only one with more American blood on his hands was #OsamaBinLaden.
.@SecPompeo says there is a bigger strategy here at play with what @realDonaldTrump and his national security team is doing. They’re trying to reestablish deterrence.
