While visiting Israel and Saudi Arabia as part of his Mideast tour, Democrat Joe Biden receives a frightening new intelligence warning about Iran’s deadly plans for Americans. Biden has pledged to renew the Obama-era Iran nuclear deal, which many people believe rewards Iran’s criminal elements.
A US intelligence dossier warns that Iran may attempt to assassinate President Donald J. Trump or other former senior officials in retaliation for a drone attack that killed terrorist commander Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Iraq in 2020, when Biden is meeting with influential leaders there.
The visit is being used by Biden, who isn’t paying any attention to the warnings at all, to criticize Trump, calling his decision to leave the multilateral Iran deal when he was president a “gigantic mistake.”
In an interview with Israeli television station Channel12 that was broadcast on Wednesday, Biden stated, “The only thing worse than the Iran that exists now is an Iran with nuclear weapons.”
“I think it was a gigantic mistake for the last president to get out of the deal. They’re closer to a nuclear weapon now than they were before,” he continued.
The terrorist nation has declared that Trump, Mike Pompeo, and Gen. Kenneth McKenzie are “priority targets” after Soleimani was assassinated by a US drone while making a clandestine visit to Iraq, according to the most recent warning. According to US sources, Soleimani was a prominent financier of terrorist networks, making him a target. At the time, Trump provided a thorough justification for the leader’s strike.
According to Yahoo News, the National Counter Terrorism Center’s (NCTC) June 16 intelligence assessment was released just two days before President Joe Biden announced his current Middle East visit.
The National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), which is headquartered under the Department of National Intelligence, creates analyses, keeps the definitive database of known and suspected terrorists, and disseminates information on terrorism.
The Daily Mail said that “Biden on Wednesday opened his first visit to the Mideast since taking office with a stop in Israel, where Iran’s nuclear ambitions were expected to be the top item on the agenda.”
Iran has long talked about exacting revenge for the murder of Soleimani; earlier this year, it even released a mocking film depicting a mock drone strike on Trump. The new article provides additional evidence that US officials are carefully considering the warnings.
The declassified but ‘for official use only’ NCTC intelligence report was widely disseminated within the government and to law enforcement agencies around the country.

‘Since January 2021, 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 Michael Pompeo, and former CENTCOM Commander General Kenneth McKenzie as among its priority targets for retribution,’ the report says.
