Jihad Watch : More treason from the post-American President. “Mattis: Obama Failed to Respond to Iran Bomb Plot on U.S. Soil Because of Nuclear Deal,” by Matt Margolis, PJ Media, September 5, 2019:
After the surprise resignation of Secretary of Defense
James Mattis last December, Democrats were quick to politicize the news,
and have certainly been hoping ever since that Mattis would provide
them with new information they could use to attack Donald Trump. He does
have a memoir coming out, Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead, but it looks like it’s Barack Obama and Joe Biden who get the bulk of the criticism.
Prior be being Secretary of
Defense under Trump, Mattis served as commander of U.S. Central Command
under Obama and Biden. Mattis had predicted that Iran would continue to
provoke the United States. Mattis’s warning went ignored, and when Iran committed an act of war on American soil, he was not told about it, and the United States never responded to it.
The duty officer at his Tampa, Florida, headquarters on
Oct. 11, 2011 told him that the attorney general and FBI director had

elements of the Iranian government and, specifically, senior members of
the Qods Force.’ The Qods were the Special Operations Force of the
Revolutionary Guards, reporting to the top of the Iranian government.”
Mattis writes, “Had the bomb gone off, those in the restaurant and on
the street would have been ripped apart, blood rushing down sewer
drains. It would have been the worst attack on us since 9/11. I sensed
that only Iran’s impression of America’s impotence could have led them
to risk such an act within a couple of miles of the White House.
Many pundits questioned the
administration’s assessment that the Iranian government was involved in
the plan. Despite Iran’s long history of overseas assassination plots,
some observers were skeptical that the theocratic regime would attempt
such an audacious attack. Mattis is certain, however: “I saw the intelligence: we had recorded Tehran’s approval of the operation.”
one fundamental mistake — the terrorists had engaged an undercover DEA
agent in an attempt to smuggle the bomb — the Iranians would have pulled
off this devastating attack. Had that bomb exploded, it would have
