CIA director says concerned about Iran’s threatening behavior in Iraq

U.S. Central Intelligence Agency Director Mike Pompeo


Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director Mike Pompeo has expressed his concern over Iran’s threatening behavior in Iraq.

Speaking during a panel at the annual Reagan National Defense Forum in Southern California, U.S., Pompeo said he sent a letter to Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani and Iranian leaders, warning them of launching any attack on American troops stationed in Iraq.

Pompeo said he sent the letter after the senior Iranian military commander had indicated that forces under his control might attack U.S. forces in Iraq. He did not specify the date.

“What we were communicating to him in that letter was that we will hold he and Iran accountable for any attacks on American interests in Iraq by forces that are under their control,” Reuters quoted Pompeo as telling the panel.

“We wanted to make sure he and the leadership in Iran understood that in a way that was crystal clear.”

  1. CIA director is an A*****E like Trump. US very desperate. US need 50,000 barrels of oil
    per day to survive. Will Russia allow US to have the oil. Chinese and North Korean troops
    will soon enter Syria and Iraq to fight US and its terrorist Kurdish alliance. Jews have used
    and destroyed America because they want to be somebody in Gods world. The end is near.
