The US claims it has intercepted an order by a former Iranian official who warned of mass abductions and brutal killings of American citizens around the world and the raping and killing of one of Obama’s daughters should the United States attack Syria.
This is coming at a time when Congress is debating whether or not to support President Obama’s call for a limited strike against Syria for the alleged use of chemical weapons. Iran vows to back Bashar al-Assad’s regime to the hilt and threatening to unleash terrorism should the U.S. strike.
Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s Quds Forces, Wednesday told the Assembly of Experts — the body that chooses the supreme leader — that “we will support Syria to the end.”
“Hopefully Obama will be pigheaded enough to attack Syria, and then we will see the … loss of U.S. interests through terrorist attacks,” he threatened. “In just 21 hours after the attack on Syria, a family member of every U.S. minister, Department secretary, U.S. ambassador, U.S. military commander around the world will be abducted. And then 18 hours later, videos of their amputation will be spread around the world.”
A similar act was committed in a video of the torture of William Buckley, a CIA station chief who was abducted in Beirut in 1984 and later killed by Hezbollah on Iran’s order. That video was dropped off at the U.S. Embassy in Athens. Former CIA Director William Casey later described what he saw in the video: “They had done more than ruin his body. His eyes made it clear his mind had been played with. It was horrific, medieval and barbarous.”
