US Laying Groundwork for War With Iran, Says Former Army Colonel

The current US government is preparing to go to war with Iran, according to former US Army colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, who spoke with The Real News Network on April 17.

Wilkerson said that Pompeo trying to link al-Qaeda with Iran is one of the last steps in setting the stage for war with Iran.

Wilkerson argued that national security adviser John Bolton is ‘orchestrating‘ most of the Trump administration’s policies toward Iran.

In 2007, General Wesley Clark explained that a few weeks after the 9/11 attacks, a US government official told him about a secret ‘hit list’ of seven countries the Bush administration planned to “take out,” starting with Iraq, then Syria and Lebanon, then Libya, then Somalia and Sudan and then back to Iran.
