Former Deputy CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell: Soleimani Strike Will Lead To "Dead Civilian Americans"

|

CBS: The targeted killing of Qassem Soleimani, one of Iran's top military leaders, has escalated tensions between the U.S. and Iran, with Iran vowing revenge. CBS News senior national security contributor, and former acting and deputy CIA director Michael Morell joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss the potential threats to Americans abroad and on U.S. soil in response to the drone strike.

"Soleimani was an evil genius, he had a lot of American blood on his hands," Morell said. "The world is a better place without him. The problem is that comes at a very high cost. Number one, there will be dead Americans, dead civilian Americans, as a result of this. Possibly over the next few days in any place where Iran has its proxies, Iraq is the most likely place, but also Lebanon, Bahrain, other places in the Middle East."
