Mark Esper says he had no evidence of Iran attacks

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper on Sunday said that he hadn't seen evidence to support President Donald Trump’s claim that a top Iranian general killed by a U.S. airstrike was “actively planning” imminent attacks on four American embassies, saying that he “didn’t see” specific intelligence to support that assertion.

In an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham that aired on Friday, the president justified the decision to kill former Qods Force chief Qassem Soleimani by telling Ingraham “I can reveal that I believe it probably would’ve been four embassies.” This was an expansion on previous comments, as Trump had told reporters earlier in the week that Soleimani was “looking to blow up our embassy” in Baghdad and later said at a campaign rally that he was “actively planning new attacks” on multiple embassies.
