Yahoo reported that according to the intelligence report:
“Tehran has publicly expressed a willingness to conduct lethal operations inside the United States and has consistently identified former President Donald Trump, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and former CENTCOM Commander General Kenneth McKenzie as among its priority targets for retribution,” the report says.
The ability to conduct such operations in the United States has become much easier under the Biden administration, whose lax border policies have left the southern border of the United States wide open.
According to the New York Post, a number of terror watchlist suspects have been nabbed at the border, but it is unknown how many such individuals are “got-aways.”
“Iran would probably view the killing or prosecution of a US official it considers equivalent in rank and structure to Soleimani or responsible for his death as successful retaliatory actions,” the assessment continued.
According to the report, Iran, one of the most egregious countries in the sponsorship of terrorism in the world, is “waging a multipronged campaign” to avenge Soleimani’s death, a campaign which includes “threats of lethal action,” international maneuvering, and the issuance of Iranian arrest warrants and sanctions.”
