Trump ordered the January 2 strike on Qassem Soleimani after violent protests at the Baghdad embassy that the USA says Iran instigated. The officials spoke to the Associated Post on condition of anonymity in order to discuss a classified mission.

A USA drone strike on January 3 killed Soleimani shortly after he landed at Baghdad International Airport.

The officials said a military air attack targeted Abdul Reza Shahlai, a high-ranking commander in Iran's Islamic Republican Guard Corps but the mission was not successful.

Senator Mike Braun (R-IN) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Thursday that the Democrats had displayed a hypocritical vision of President Donald Trump's foreign policy regarding Iran.

"We don't know exactly which day it would've been executed but it was very clear, Qassem Soleimani himself was plotting a broad, large-scale attack against American interests and those attacks were imminent", Pompeo said.

Between the lack of evidence on these claims, and the revelation that the U.S. also tried to kill a second Iranian general in Yemen on the same day, the signs are that the president just started trying to kill Iranians, and came up with official excuses well after the fact. The State Department said he "has a long history of targeting Americans and US allies globally", and planned multiple assassinations of coalition forces in Iraq. No one was killed in that retaliation.

The State Department offered a reward of $US15 million ($21.7 million) early last month for information leading to the disruption of IRGC finances, including Mr Shahlai, a key financier in the organisation.

The Pentagon declined to discuss the highly-classified operation. "The Department of Defence does not discuss alleged operations in the region", Navy Commander Rebecca Rebarich, a Pentagon spokeswoman, said. He has also blamed Soleimani's history of helping to foment unrest in the Middle East and provide weapons to Iraqi militia that were used to kill American troops in the Iraq War.

The State Department said USA troops are crucial for the fight against the Islamic State extremist group and it would not discuss removing them.

The sanctions mean "we will cut off billions of dollars of support to the Iranian regime", US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told reporters at the White House.

"We have far too many troops around the world", he added.
