No one should ever feel sorry for General Qassim Suleimani …he was a cold-blooded murderer!

But the story is much more complicated than the assassination of one man.

As the story goes; It appeared that the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) managed to do the “unthinkable” …what no one else has ever been able to do:..crack into the impenetrable Ministry of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Intelligence Service (known primarily as MOIS or VAJA).

The US gained the ability to listen to Iranian Intelligence intel at the “very highest levels”! The ability to spy and keep a check on Iran’s nuclear activities and all their other military tactical information…all the classified data they’ve been able to obtain …until the Assassination of Suleimani!
It was well known by the “Intelligence Community”, the only possible way to ever gain intelligence info on Suleimani and/or the other Commanders & Deputy Commander’s whereabouts would be through “electronic surveillance”!

As DC Report’s Dana Kennedy writes on Impeached Don giving away our intelligence efforts and probably the only opportunity to keep Iran’s nuclear plans in check for at least the next 10 years or longer; “Trump apparently decided it was worth letting Iran know that the US NSA managed the unthinkable”.

He, took this action to stop a war? …who advised him to take this action? Cause the Intelligence Community and Foreign Affairs experts all said it was a grave tactical mistake, a blunder of grand proportions.
Trump wants to stop a war, while immediately 4,000 Troops at Ft. Bragg began their deployment this morning with a one-way ticket to the Middle East?
War has always been a great idea if you’re a Politico down in the Polls!

With a possible war with Iran on the horizon, no help from our formal allies, and zero intelligence capabilities inside Iran… Trump has put the security of the United States in peril.

As an “Anonymous” former intelligënce agent said:
“Probably nobody wants to say is this: Trump killed one big guy but as a result, we lose access to eavesdropping on Iran and their nukes which is arguably a lot more important.”!
