US NSA: Iranian IRGC was preparing an attack on American General Joseph Martin

Iran was preparing the assassination of American General Joseph Martin - Deputy Chief of Staff of the US Army, the operation was developed by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. This is reported by the Associated Press with reference to the data of the American intelligence.


According to the newspaper, in January this year, the US National Security Agency (NSA) received information about the preparation of an operation to eliminate the Deputy Chief of Staff of the US Army Joseph Martin in retaliation for the assassination of the commander of Al-Quds, Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.

The elimination of the American general was supposed to take place on the territory of the American military base Fort McNair, located in the US District of Columbia. The attack was planned according to a similar scenario with the attack on the American destroyer Cole in the port of Aden in 2000, i.e. with the use of suicide bombers.

According to the NSA, al-Quds planned to establish surveillance of the Fort McNair base, and then infiltrate its territory and eliminate General Joseph Martin, probably with the help of undermining.

After receiving information about the plans of the IRGC, additional measures were taken at the base to strengthen security, which ultimately led to the abandonment of the operation, according to the NSA.

Recall that Tehran promised to avenge Qasem Soleimani by eliminating those involved in the murder of the Iranian general.

    The United States can use terrorists, but Iran cannot. As usual. Well, it's not even a fact that the Persians conceived something in this regard.

      Yes, after the "poisoning of the Skripals" and putting up their "poisonous" house for sale, there is no faith in what the Anglo-Saxons say.
      Iran, in principle, does not need such nonsense as the murder of a general in the States, IMHO.
      There are plenty of bases in the region to keep them out of the US lair.
      And the States need to demonstrate that Iran is great and terrible.
      Already swings into their territory. Nonsense and nothing more. hi

          Suicide bombers are not a Shiite topic, as far as I know. hi

            Suicide bombers or not, "Cole" was rammed with a motor boat, that's all.

              I know the story with Cole well. Down to technological details, why such damage was caused to Cole (steel grades, seams, etc.). wink
              The point is that there were suicide bombers in the boat.
              And the general, allegedly, the suicide bombers should have turned up.
              Only the increased security of the base saved him. laughing
              The Iranian nuclear engineer was not saved by any security ...

    On the way to Fort McNair, a group of bearded men was walking, which betrayed the IRGC suicide bombers or the Kalashnikov submachine guns, or the volumes of the Koran in the hands of the roofing felts dragging behind their backs (Sorry for the plagiarism) drinks

      There are a lot of bearded men in the US special forces and among the Saudis and ISIS, so if you put a bearded Persian next to it, you will hardly find any difference.

            In general, the level of American journalism has dropped to the level of Ukrainian aviation .. There, today they are discussing that we got the Tomogavk block 4 not damaged.

        Here are just all sorts of ISIS Arabs in the main, which means they are dark-skinned. And the Persians are generally Aryans and whites.

    Where is the proof of Iran's intentions?
    Highly Likely Again.
    But I understand Iranians, mean
    Soleimani's murder must not go unpunished.
    In vain the Americans disturbed the wasp hive ... expect a painful bite wherever the Americans are.

    In Yemen, the Yankees operation to eliminate another IRGC general, Abdulpa Reza Shahlai, failed. This was reported by the American media.
    Outrageous, however.
    In this case (if not "duck") - An eye for an eye ...

    "Was there a boy?" © In the sense, maybe Iran did not plan to eliminate the general, how does intelligence broadcast about it? Lately, the intelligence of the Anglo-Saxons has been constantly inventing something.

    I will express my personal opinion, possibly a cynical one. If this is true, which is unlikely, then it is a pity that they did not succeed.

    The Persians are independent, but they did not get rid of the shoes (in the photo) a la British guardsman or a fighter of the foreign legion of France in full dress. Well, these are trifles, of course.
    The United States and its "aggressor democrats", when putting forward the old president, adopted the vector "to bend everyone over the knee," and whoever does not bend - to increase the pressure.
    Shit will now become even stronger for everyone, they will look for any ways to inflict not just harm, but the most severe damage, so that "aggressors and murderers pay" for "threats."
    By type: We are not aggressors, we are just offensively defending! If you describe the actions of the United States.
    The whipping up of hysteria and chaos, the pressure on the buyers of weapons is a continuation of the same line.
    Then they will bomb someone more and more actively.
    Even under Trump, their Department of Defense had insights that the United States would not spend money by introducing ground troops or holding territories beyond national borders. They will simply bomb and coerce into the required model of behavior by all means and forces, in parallel extinguishing everything with sanctions and restrictions.
    Until at least some of the countries in the world unite against the United States and the West, until they are in a military defensive alliance to prevent the West from bombing themselves, until they make parallel mechanisms of financial transactions and all other Western-controlled economic instruments, everything will continue.
    And our people have been waiting for everything for 25 years already: when our government and "ethics" and billionaire oligarchs are afraid of the United States and the West in relation to their capital and property, yes, in the end, for their physical existence, life and health (Prigozhin has already said, that bandits with the participation of US citizens recently tried to kidnap him and take him out of the Russian Federation (and why: they wanted to earn extra money)) - finally, they will have to somehow develop our country and economy, and not patch the holes of everything and everything from year to year, endlessly enriching and out of habit despising their people.

    If they did, they would attack. And so, it looks more like a stuffing by the NSA.
