    State Department security officials weren't notified of 'imminent' threats to US embassies

    Washington (CNN)State Department officials involved in US embassy security were not made aware of imminent threats to four specific US embassies, two State Department officials tell CNN, further undermining President Donald Trump's claims that the top Iranian general he ordered killed earlier this month posed an imminent threat to the diplomatic outposts.

    Without knowledge of any alleged threats, the State Department didn't issue warnings about specific dangers to any US embassy before the administration targeted Qasem Soleimani, Iran's second most powerful official, according to the sources.
    The State Department sent a global warning to all US embassies before the strike occurred, a senior State Department official said and the department spokesperson confirmed, but it was not directed at specific embassies and did not warn of an imminent attack.

    The president doesn't answer to the state department, so what if they weren't notified.

    Trump needed a distraction.




    It is extremely difficult to get a GOP Senator to accept something when their salary depends upon not accepting it.

    You are saying that it's perfectly fine by you that the president doesn't notify an embassy that they have information that an attack is imminent?

    Do you understand what you're saying here??

    The threat has been neutralized, what difference does it make?

    There was a threat and Trump reacted to the threat. Better than some folks can say. Ain't that right?
