The meeting was attended by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, US National Security Adviser John Bolton, Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Chanahan, US Army Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Danford, CIA Director Gina Haspell, and US National Intelligence Director Dan Coates .
The meeting came after an increase in intelligence received by the commander of the US Central Command, Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, that the movement, "Asaib Ahl al-Haq" led by Qais al-Khazali is preparing to attack the US base in the Al-Tanf, located at the border of the Syrian-Jordanian border.
And that 'Asaib Ahl al-Haq' is capable of carefully and professionally preparing the alleged assault on Al-Tanf, since the Khazali forces are stationed in the Anbar area of western Iraq near the Iraqi-Syrian border.
And that Iran supplied "Asaib Ahl al-Haq" with ballistic missiles of the type "Fateh - Zulfiqar" capable of targeting other US sites in the Middle East in the event of a failed attack plan or the Altnf canceled.
In light of that information, the latest American actions were hostile to Iran, the dispatch of US warships to the Gulf, the deployment of Patriot missiles and B-52 nuclear bombers in the region, and the warning of Iran's enemies, "whatever their identity," to attack US interests and threaten a swift and decisive response.
