U.S. under Threat as Iran Pushes Assassinations, Kidnappings

(Fox News) Benjamin Weinthal - Amirali Hajizadeh, the commander of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Aerospace, declared last week that, "Inshallah (God willing), we will be able to kill Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo, (former) CENTCOM chief Kenneth McKenzie, and others who ordered the killing of Qasem Soleimani." FBI director Christopher Wray noted on Jan. 27, "Looking at the threat from Iran more broadly, we've seen the Iranian regime become more aggressive and more brazen across vectors. In just the past couple of years, actors associated with Iran have launched a ransomware attack on a children's hospital in New England, attempted to assassinate the former U.S. National Security Advisor on U.S. soil, and now plotted to silence a U.S. citizen - a journalist who publicized the Iranian government's human rights abuses - by carrying out a murder in the heart of New York City. If that doesn't show how serious the threat from Iran is to Americans right here in America, I don't know what does." A new report by the Zachor Legal Institute - "The Unseen Threat of the Mapping Project" - outlines Iranian threats against U.S. targets that include the Boston Police Department, the FBI, and other government and law enforcement agencies. The Boston Mapping Project was initially thought to be limited to planned antisemitic terrorism attacks against Jewish and Israeli organizations in Boston. However, the new report revealed that "out of the roughly 500 entities publicly listed on the Mapping Project website, 298 are American strategic security assets and institutions. This raises concern that the true goal of the project is to map the American security apparatus." "A particularly noteworthy feature of the Mapping Project is that it provides, in meticulous detail, the precise addresses of U.S. government institutions and law enforcement offices" including "numerous local branches and offices." The website of the Boston Mapping project declares, "Our goal in pursuing this collective mapping was to reveal the local entities and networks that enact devastation, so we can dismantle them. Every entity has an address, every network can be disrupted."
