BAGHDAD (AP) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is asserting that the U.S. killed Iran's top military commander to disrupt an "imminent" attack orchestrated by him.

He told CNN that the general "was actively plotting in the region to take actions, the big action as he described it, that would have put dozens if not hundreds of American lives at risk."

The secretary of state did not say where or when the attack had been expected to take place. He told Fox that in the attack "there would have been many Muslims killed as well, Iraqis, people in other countries as well."

Senator Lindsey Graham responded to the death of Qassem Soleimani following a US drone missile strike.

Duncan Statement on Death of Terrorist Qassem Soleimani

Laurens, S.C. – Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC-03) released the following statement regarding the death of Qassem Soleimani, head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S. designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.

“I applaud President Trump for taking decisive action to take out Qassem Soleimani, a brutal terrorist with the blood of countless Americans on his hands. This action shows Iranian attacks and aggression against Americans will not go unnoticed under President Trump’s leadership. Our military is the best of the best, and may God bless them for their efforts in making the world a safer place without murderous terrorists like Qassem Soleimani.”
