GOP lawmaker on Iran threat: Directive was to 'kill and kidnap American soldiers'
WASHINGTON – A top Republican lawmaker said Friday that the threat from Iran picked up by U.S. intelligence – which sparked a U.S. military deployment to the Middle East and heightened tensions across the region – was very specific and involved the possible kidnapping and killing of American soldiers.

"To the extent I can discuss it, it was human intelligence," Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, the ranking Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told USA TODAY on Friday. He was referring to intelligence information that prompted the Pentagon to deploy an aircraft carrier, along with B-52 bombers and other military forces, to the Middle East.

Trump administration officials said the move was made to counter what they described as credible threats from Iran to U.S. forces in the region.

McCaul said U.S. intelligence officials learned that the head of Iran's Quds Force, a unit of Iran's military force, met with Iran's proxy militias and said: "We are getting ready to have a proxy war and target Americans."

He said the same message was delivered to a Hezbollah proxy group. Hezbollah is an Iranian-sponsored terrorist group.

"One of the Hezbollah cells is known for its kidnapping and killing operations, and their directive was to go in and kill and kidnap American soldiers," McCaul said.

Isn't that kind of the object in a war zone when the enemy is bombing your locations?
