White House LIES About Imminent Threat From Iran

White House LIES About Imminent Threat From Iran


>>Trump’s National Security Adviser Robert
O’Brien, is defending so called intel indicating that Qasem Soleimani was serving as an imminent
threat to the United States, which essentially makes an excuse for Donald Trump’s order of
an assassination on Soleimani. Now, I wanna be clear that the intelligence
agencies have not provided any intel at least publicly, and the Trump administration has
not provided any specifics publicly, however, they’re still pushing this narrative about
how they have the intel, and how they’re gonna share the details of that Intel. With Congress tomorrow on Wednesday, almost
a week after this assassination took place. I would argue that if they had that intel
to begin with, they would show it immediately to members of Congress to justify what is
now in my opinion, a war crime. But we’ll get to that in a minute. First, let’s go to Donald Trump arguing that
he knew all about Soleimani’s actions, when in reality he didn’t even know who Soleimani
was. Take a look.>>What would you tell us about what you knew
prior?>>Well, number one I knew the past. His past was horrible. He was a terrorist. He was so designated by President Obama, as
you know. And he wasn’t even supposed to be outside
of his own country. He was, so right there. But that’s in a way the least of it. We had an attack very recently, that he was
in charge of where we had people horribly wounded, one dead. In fact, the number now as of this morning,
I believe is two dead, and that was his. He was traveling with the head of Hezbollah. They weren’t there to discuss a vacation. They were there to go to a nice resort, someplace
in Baghdad. They were there to discuss bad business, and
we saved a lot of lives by terminating his life. A lot of lives were saved, they were planning
something, and you’re going to be hearing about it, or at least various people in Congress
are gonna be hearing about it tomorrow. Our Secretary of State covered it very well
a little while ago. I saw him, I saw his news conference, Mike. And if you wanna mention a couple of things
in addition to what I’ve just said, but we had tremendous information, we’ve been following
him for a long time. And we followed his path for those three days,
and they were not good steps. We didn’t like where he was stopping, they
were not good steps. We saved a lot of lives.>>Okay, so we have an imbecile for a president,
and you know this but so.>>He said nothing there, just to be clear. No Anna, he clarified by saying he was up
to bad business by going to not good stops, third graders president and again, it’s insulting
third graders. So, last week we showed you clips of Donald
Trump being asked during the election season, who Qasem Soleimani was and he said. Sure, I know who he is and.>>Yes.>>And then they mentioned the Kurdish force
and he’s like, the Kurdish are good guys. And he was like no, the Kurdish force from
Iran. He’s like, it’s a gotcha question. It’s not fair. But, I thought you said you knew who he was. So now here he is, couple years later he’s
claiming he knows Solemani, really really well. That’s why he did this. And what do you know about him? He’s making not good stops.>>Yeah that means nothing.>>We’re gonna give you nothing. That means absolutely nothing, of course except
that he wanted to show that he was a tough guy. By killing an Iranian general. So, we’re gonna get through a quote, that
will definitively tell you that they knew nothing in a second, okay?>>Yeah.>>But, I wanna make sure in one of the thing
that he talked about there. He said he’s a terrorist. That is a blanket statement that we make of
everyone, and that’s our enemy, and so it justifies all of our actions, and all assassinations,
and all war crimes because we arbitrarily call them terrorists. Now, did Solemani’s actions lead to other
people’s deaths? Yes. Is he also the top General of Iran? Yes. So, do the actions of some of our generals
lead to deaths? Yes. Okay. Are they terrorists? No, so now even if you say, well yeah but
I don’t like Iran. So, I’d like to just call them terrorists. Remember, okay, that’s fine, you can feel
good about that. But, remember it has ramifications.>>Right.>>Cuz they then call us terrorists, and our
generals, and our diplomats, terrorist and they say okay, well if you have a right to
murder our generals, we have a right to murder your generals, and your other officials. And by the way, today, Iran, at least actually
was slightly more measure than Trump and said, what America did was state terrorism, it’s
also a little bit more correct. And so, Iran has done state terrorism, arguably. And now, we have apparently done state terrorism.>>Right
>>And so now we’re all gonna murder one another.>>Yeah
>>And that’s how war starts.>>Look, this isn’t. It’s really important for people to understand,
this isn’t a debate to adjudicate whether or not Soleimani he was a bad person, right? No, this is about burden of proof, right? To hink of it as like a murder trial, because
something as heavy as war. Deserves a high burden of proof. Right? So in this case, in order to unilaterally
without congressional authorization, do a drone strike that assassinates a top general
in a sovereign country, you need to provide evidence, irrefutable evidence, that that
individual served as an imminent threat. What does an imminent threat mean? It means that he was about to carry out an
attack, that was going to kill members of our military, US personnel, what have you. They have failed to provide that. Again, this is not a debate about whether
or not Soleimani is a bad guy. There are many bad guys, around the world,
that the United States is in bed with. Trump is specifically in bed with the crown
prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed Bin Salman, who ordered the murder of a US journalist,
and US resident Jamal Khashoggi.>>Hey guys, can we just at least all agree
that obviously, Mohammed Bin Salman is a terrorist by this standard. He chopped up a journalist, literally dismembered
him, it doesn’t get any more terrorist than that, so are we allowed to murder Mohammed
Bin Salman? Or should we, do we have an obligation to
murder Mohammed bin Salman? Cuz this is not my philosophy. This is Donald Trump’s philosophy. Now, do you have any idea what would happen
if we random not randomly, but because of that, assassinated Mohammed Bin Salman? A lot of terrible consequences would come
from that. I can’t stand the Saudi government, but I
wouldn’t wanna assassinate Salman, I’d wanna do it through legal processes, and bring him
to justice for the murder of Khashoggi. But, we don’t just drop bombs on people, because
we’ve felt like it, or it was in our political best interest>>Because that escalates war, and that actually,
threatens the lives of more members of our military, and US personnel abroad. That’s why you have to think about strategy,
not whether or not, you emotionally find someone appealing enough to not attack them. So look, I have to make one quick clarification
as well, in the beginning of the clip that we showed you, Trump said something about
how Soleimani was designated by Obama. He wasn’t designated by Obama. In fact, since we’re talking about Saudi Arabia,
Obama in 2011, sanctioned Soleimani specifically, because he was targeting our ally Saudi Arabia. So it’s not as if the Obama administration
was like a buddy buddy with Soleimani. That is not the case at all. In fact, Obama in 2011 again, sanctioned him. Now with that said, let’s go to the national
security adviser to Donald Trump, Robert O’Brien. He’s gonna explain, again, very vaguely that
there is intel that pushed them to do this. Take a look. The intel that we had, the information we
had, which we believe was very strong, showed that Soleimani, and those he was plotting
with, were looking to kill American diplomats, and soldiers in significant numbers in the
coming days. And that’s why the President authorized the
successful operation, that was undertaken by the US military. So, it’s important for you to understand that
everything that’s coming out of these Trump administration officials is a flat out lie. They’re being vague on purpose, because they
don’t have the intel to prove that Soleimani was an imminent threat. In fact, if you don’t believe me because you
just think well, she’s a progressive. And she doesn’t want this war. First of all, you’re right about that. But let’s hear from General Mark Milley, or
Millie, I apologize. General Mark Milley, who’s the Chairman of
the Joint Chiefs of Staff. I’m gonna read you his quote. He said, I will be happy when the appropriate
time comes, and in front of the proper committees, and anybody else, through history and every
I will stand by the intelligence I saw, that it was compelling. It was imminent, it was very, very, very clear
in scale scope. Okay, fine.>>That sounds really definitive Anna.>>That sounds definitive right? And then he, I’m not joking, immediately follows
that quote with this. Did it exactly say who, what, when, where? No, but he was planning, coordinating, and
synchronizing significant combat operations against US military forces in the region. And it was imminent, he said, adding that
quote, we would have been culpably negligent to the American people had we not made the
decision we made.>>No, it’s over, it’s over. Did it’s saying when, who, where? No. In other words, you didn’t have anything,
okay? You didn’t have anything. It’s a lie, it’s a lie. Did we know who they were gonna kill? No. Wait a minute, you didn’t know who they were
gonna kill, then how did you know they were gonna kill him anybody? Did we know when or where? No. So then, what the hell did you know? You didn’t know anything. Everything else is a lie. That’s a Joint Chief right there admitting
on the record, we didn’t know who the hell he was gonna target, or if he was gonna target
anyone, we just made it up. Why? Donald Trump thought okay, well I mean I have
to show that when embassy is attacked, but it’s not gonna be a Benghazi! I guarantee you, that is the number one reason. Yeah distract from impeachment, yes, you wanna
prove you’re a tough guy, etc. It was the Benghazi thing, that I think motivated
him the most. Like, I’m gonna show that I’m tougher than
Obama. Obama once for once now, guys it’s over. It’s over the head of the Joint Chief said
we had no effing idea. You just saw the quote.

  1. Never thought he'd take anything Obama did seriously. Now he finds it convenient to go with the fact that Obama designated him a terrorist.

  2. What about the tape from 2011, Trump talking about bombing Iran for votes.
    Edit: He was addressing the election of the time. Trevor Noah showed it and it was on YouTube trending.
    Also, what about the report that just came out of 17 years of misdirected, lie of a war??

  3. Yes! The General made some, "Not Good Stops!" and therefore deserved to die! Morons! What don't you understand! Let this be a warning to ALL foreign officials that leave their country for any reason. If they don't stop at Trump Properties, the price will be death! How dare ANYONE think they can travel and not spend money at a Trump Property! Outrageous!

  4. Yeah he “saved a lot of lives” 🤔
    Like the base that just got bombed… right?
    He’s an idiot, and a terrorist himself. Impeach, imprison, and replace him already!

  5. >tries to pull a Benghazi 2.0 with a side of Hostage Crisis 2.0 Trump during election year
    >gets droned and dick is forever on the internet
    >legions of diaspora and cringey losers in the West who will never move (back) to Iran start crying
    >proxies are activated too
    >cry on an Egyptian bible study forum about how America is a big bad man
    >never make good on the empty threats to Israel going on for 40 years
    >threatens to sue you in international courts, kek, and sends a strongly worded letter to the UN

  6. Because under the prior "civilized" rules of fighting a war in the middle east, Iran would fund and arm all of the people killing Americans; and America (while knowing this to be true), would act like they DIDN'T know it; and wouldn't respond directly to the people responsible.

    So under these rules, assholes like these could travel to Iraq, sit down for meetings, plan the attacks, arm the attackers, give them funding, and then step back and watch; with cocky assurance that nothing would ever happen to him.

    But Trump has decided to change the rules slightly. Now, if you're the one planning, arming and financing those killing Americans, you become a target just like the poor son of a bitch you talk into strapping on a bomb.

    It's a good change.

  7. LOL do you need more proofs TYT ? The most funny is that you recorded this video just a few hours before the attack.

  8. Hey Ana, Trump was stating that Obama had designated Suleimani as a terrorist prior to he, himself, doing so to.This was done to add a bit more justification to his decision to have him killed, one would think.

  9. Trump lying? WOW!! What a surprise. We know that tRump is a pathological liar, anything he says cannot be trusted. They don't have any proof of imminent threat, they are making up such proof.

  10. Takes a week to fabricate credible looking evidence, it seems. Hey trumpanzees, i thought the deep state was untrustworthy? Now its not, eh?

  11. He wasn't a general in Iran's military, he was a general in the IRGC a personal terrorist army of the supreme leader.

  12. Waiting for cartoon of Trump throwing field dressings to medics working on the bullet riddled bodies of teen soldiers once his impeachment distraction of a war really starts, like when he threw paper towels at the hurricane victims, I wonder if the maga morons will still be zombie chanting at his rallies once their relatives and friend start coming back from there in body bags.

  13. You can thank Israel and the Israeli Lobby (AIPAC) for this… i.e. Adelson, Nethanyahu etc – the real enemy and threat to America…

  14. War-Crime… Trump, Pompeo, Bolton, and the rest of the White House Knesset belong in the Hague… Keep in mind these assassinating criminal cowards want to get their hands on Assange…

  15. Why is a person pushing America into war (especially on BIG, FABRICATED LIES) not considered a domestic terrorist, a domestic enemy of America ?

  16. cenk edip yuksel is going to have meetings in new jersey public square if u want to send ur tyt people there its very mportant.

  17. 6:30 you can tell at this moment, Cenk realizes that he was entirely right about Trump…and he wishes he hadn’t been

  18. The threat WAS imminent. That day there was a scheduled meeting between Iraq and Iran. HOURS away… The THREAT was Iraq and Iran making a deal and making US troops less valued and possibly obsolete and the possible creation of a stable Iraq that would have global support in requesting US troops to be withdrawn.

  19. The US LIKES to throw around the "terrorist" label.
    NELSON MANDELA was considered a terrorist and was even on a watch list until 2008. (He was considered a terrorist for over 20 years)

  20. Ever notice how Trump loves to call on people to attempt to save him when he's out of nonsense to spew.🤦‍♂️🤦‍♀️ Also, who knew, about Baghdad's nice resorts?🤣

  21. Also he said that Soleimani was “meeting with” people who were planning Imminent attacks on us diplomats. Which btw is very different by than planning them himself. I thought Iran has said he was trying to negotiate some sort of treaty. I don’t know if that’s accurate but it sure sounded like what Trump also said – “we didn’t like where he was going”. So basically he became guilty by association, even if he was on a diplomatic mission to bring different groups to the table. It really sounds like the only “evidence” they have is the people he met with. That’s not catching someone in the act. Especially if he was tasked with a diplomatic mission in Iraq.

    The USA has only proven again to the world that we do whatever the hell we want. Commit war crimes, break laws, assassinate whoever we want with trump up evidence, steal whatever resources we want, and act like the most corrupted police force of the world.

  22. There is no intel, this was all about trying to provoke Iran into a reaction that justifies starting another endless war; the defence contractors (his donors) want their biggest ever pay day

  23. Well now that he was killed they should show the evidenced they have gathered so the people of the USA can see the so called TRUTH!

  24. Slight corrction: Trump said that Obama had designated Suleimani as a terrorist. Not that he designated him as a good guy or whatever.

  25. we should end up the life of all those bad people who are war monger….beginning in USA by top ass hole in charge according to Trump..so be it

  26. Ok so instead of lazily saying "Who, What, Where, When" …he should've specified it as "Names, EXACT Locations, Precise Times"…but at least he did mention it was US targets anyway (which would've been the "What" he mentioned)

  27. Fear book revealed that someone stopped Donald from tweeting words that would have caused WW3. Where's that Anonymous Warning author now? I still believe it is Dan Coats.

  28. Proof? They don't need no proof. They don't need no steenkin proof.  They just say they can't supply it for national security reasons and they could assassinate anybody and get away with it.

  29. 1:54 Trump claims a lot of lives were saved with that assassination. One could make a similar argument with Trump.

  30. I would also like to hear from the families UK and Americans who's sons and or daughters that he supposed to have killed.
    They always make these statements that lots of UK or US soldiers have been killed. Let's hear the families.

  31. Is there an afterlife?

    How do YOU tell right from wrong?

    Does justice exist?

    There is an eternal God sitting on his throne of judgement awaiting every soul that leaves this world. He is the standard of moral excellence and has provided us with a moral conscience and his word and commandments.
          We have greatly sinned against him and as he is holy and just must serve righteous judgment on those who are guilty.
        Because he is also rich in mercy and is the source of love he became a flesh and blood man walked among us and was crucified for the payment of the sins of mankind. Through his precious blood we can be forgiven and know God and be at peace with him.
       Repent of your sins, give your life to Jesus Christ and be forgiven and saved.
    The new age cannot replace God.
    He is eternal and is reaching out to you.
    May the Lord God bless you.

  32. Hiding the largest sharebyback scams We need to concentrate on social issues and corporate sharebuyback scams. I think at this point All Americans know what is gong on. Playing good and bad guy is a old game. lol

  33. Low level attacks untill they Tucker themselves out, they're will be no war. How much of Obama's money was spent sending those missiles into Iraq? Tyt is trash "news"

  34. Trumps hollow words are evidence?
    There's no such thing as a good military general. Ppl do bad things.
    Omg, this was such a dumb move.

  35. In defence of djt (I hate typing that, but…) “He was a terrorist, he was so designated by president Obama.” Does this not mean, he was agreeing with president Obama?

  36. Because of the stenographer media, the bought Republicans and corporate dems and the gullibility of large portions of the electorate, the neocon monsters no longer feel they have to work hard to make their case for war anymore. This is the laziest administration even when it comes to manufacturing consent.

  37. When McCain was supplying arms to Militants in Syria and Iraq you could say that was State Terrorism but where has one American General used incentives and arms to promote attacks on Iran?

    Never!

    Otherwise you'd have covered it by now.

  38. General Soleimani murdered thousands of Americans, and TORTURED and MURDERED tens of thousands of Iranian protestors. 
    He was a WALKING THREAT and SOCIOPATH. If the Anna is trying to STAND UP for him she is an A_HOLE! — As of 
    now JAN 8 2020, Trump has sqaushed the "imminent war with Iran" predictions from Cenk in favor of PEACE and DIPLOMACY. 
    TYT is made up of a bunch of corrupt Ass-Holes. I just saw the DAME PESOS video that PROVES IT.

  39. Before any "terrorist" act, there is a large surge in communications. There are listening posts around the world that listen in to known terrorists, foreign agents, communications, not only outgoing but incoming. There has been no such surge from Soleimani or his associates.
    GCHQ is probably the biggest such post, the very people who notified the NSA that over 200 communications had occurred between the Trump campaign and known Russian agents.

  40. Where does this stupid lady Ana get off thinking she knows her ass from a hole in the ground. You have a tv show on the internet. If you had any type of knowledge you would hold a political office. Please do yourself a favor an stfu you clown. Get ready to cry again after Daddy Trumps re election.

  41. The only imminent threat that Donald J Trump ever came across in his life was running out of cheeseburgers, French fries, buckets of chicken, and donuts. Seriously, look at President Jabba The Hut. It's a miracle that they can even roll President Donald Ronald McDonald Trump out on a wheel barrel for him to make his speeches. I wonder if Donald J Trump would ever pass the JFK President's Physical Fitness Test???????? Ha, ha, ha.

  42. I would listen to President Trump's speeches, but I do not speak his Language of "Moo Cow"!!! All I got out of President Fatso The Clown's press conference was: "Blah, blah, blah, I don't want to really be here. Where are the cheeseburgers that they promised me? Feed me". That is of course a rough translation from Trump's usual: "Moo, moo, moo, moo, moo"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. Please sit up & take notice how the entire discussion & message went from Donald J Trump being IMPEACHED & possibly Removed From Office to Trump's Attack on Iran.

  44. Tyt: White House LIES about imminent threat from Iran!

    one video later

    Tyt: …BREAKING: U.S base attacked by Iranian missiles

  45. Soleimani probably just had dirt on Trump. (but was it Epstein info, or quite possibly somethin to do with Trump sniffing asss drug problem) 🤔 hmmmm… i wonder… WHAT'S the REAL reason, Trump felt the need, to start this war with Iran, OUTTA NOWHERE….
