Feds investigate danger of scaring Qassem Soleimani by flying a plane to the Capitol: Report


Federal law enforcement will investigate the threat of cooling the Capitol building from an aircraft sent to New York air traffic controllers on Monday, CBS writes. In a voice message, an unknown voice says, “On Wednesday, we will fly to the Capitol. Soleimani will get revenge. “The threat came on the anniversary of the assassination of Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s top military official, with an American drone strike. Iranian leaders have taken revenge in fiery rhetoric since the general’s death in January 2020. Federal law enforcement agencies do not believe the threat is credible, but CBS said the Federal Aviation Administration has contacted the authorities to investigate violations of aviation radio frequencies. Congress will count and certify the outcome of Wednesday’s vote in the Electoral College.
