Baghdad Airport employees Arrested for leaking intel to US about Soleimani
5 Comments

Iraqi authorities have detained three people that work at Baghdad International Airport on suspicion of leaking information about Qassem Soleimani’s movements to Americans, enabling the US attack which killed Soleimani.

Iraqi authorities did not reveal the identities of the Baghdad Airport employees, but they did say they were Iraqi citizens.

The Iraqi authorities have launched an investigation into the circumstances of the American strike that killed the Iranian General Qassem Soleimani.

They continued that investigators are following up on a suspected “spy network” that is believed to have leaked information and details about Soleimani’s actions to the Americans.

Iraqi investigators believe that the leaked information was essential to the American operation that killed Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.

This ongoing investigation is led by Faleh al-Fayyad, the Iraqi National Security Adviser.

Syrian authorities are also conducting an investigation,  pointing out that two suspects are currently in custody over accusations that they were providing information about Soleimani.

    I know everyone says we shouldnt be over there. That is true. Oil is the reason.
    Im not condoning it either. We was also there to protect Israel. Well, after hearing that Israel said hat the retailation from Iran was a U.S. problem. They turned their back on the U.S. i say forget the oil and bring our troops home and let Israel fend for itself amongst all those Israeli haters. Bring our troops home and let the middle east destroy its own self.
    " THATS A MIDDLE EAST PROBLEM".

      They’re stuck in the middle, pulled in different directions. Nearly 70% of Iraqis are Shia Muslims like Iran and share that religious and cultural connection. A minority are Sunni like the Saudis. But then they have the American war machine in their backyard too, and the Russian war machine next door in Syria.

        Mike, it's true that the Iraqis are stuck between the proverbial "rock and a hard place". While I appreciate everyone saying we need to get out it's too late for that now. Those people knew the risk they were taking and accepted it. Those people should've disappeared right after the strike on Soleimani.

          It will long be debated on whether or not the Americans should have gone in the first place, but given that it was decided to invade Iraq, the biggest mistake was thinking that it would be possible to bring democracy or even peaceful stability in a style we in the West expect of our own civil societies.

          If the men in power had any appreciation for history, as opposed to just saying the right sound-bites to the media in order for them to have their big scoop, they would realise that having a custodial role over an Arab population will not involve nation-building or setting the groundwork for democracy. The best they can hope to do is zoo-keeping. Laurence of Arabia learned this lesson, much to his disappointment. Nothing has changed since his time.

            The reference to Lawrence of Arabia is apropos.
