Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo still has a target on his back.
The State Department released a fresh warning that any attempt to take the life of a current or former U.S. official will trigger “severe consequences.” The warning came after an Arabic-language Twitter account affiliated with the Iranian regime said during the weekend that Pompeo should fear for his life.
“Live in fear, liar” the account tweeted with a photo of Pompeo with crosshairs on his forehead. The tweet indicated that Iran wants Pompeo killed as revenge for the drone strike that killed terror leader Qassem Soleimani.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Iran is engaged in efforts to assassinate Pompeo and his Iran envoy Brian Hook, who helmed the Trump administration’s “maximum pressure” campaign against Tehran. Pompeo and Hook face “serious and credible” threats on their lives, according to nonpublic reports to Congress, one of which was exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon in January.
The State Department says it is taking these threats seriously.
“Make no mistake: the United States will protect and defend its citizens,” a State Department spokesman told the Free Beacon. “This includes those serving the United States now and those who formerly served.”
As Americans, the official said, “we are united in our resolve against threats and provocations. We are united in the defense of our people. Should Iran attack any of our nationals it will face severe consequences.”
Cameron Khansarinia, policy director at the National Union for Democracy in Iran, an Iranian-American organization that supports democracy, says the Biden administration should take Iran’s threats seriously.
“The Islamic Republic has made its decades-long chants of ‘Death to America’ more specific by calling for the murder of leading American public servants including Secretary Mike Pompeo and Special Representative Brian Hook,” Khansarinia said. “These threats by the dictatorship in Iran are not mere slogans, it is this regime’s strategy. The Biden administration must take these unacceptable threats seriously. In the long term, as a matter of policy and U.S. strategy toward Iran, we must know these threats will not end as long as this dictatorship is in power.”
Stay safe Mike
Sounds like a previous weak US President – will trigger “severe consequences.”
Are we supposed to be scared? I don’t think so. They would be turned into a dustbowl.
So long as this dictatorship is in power………….Hmmmmmmmmmmmm
Maybe Joe Biden should “Take the Hint” and Stop Groveling at the feet of the Ayatollahs attempting to Kiss A$$ for a “Deal” they would never Honor anyway as they have proven by the fact that they laughed at Obama after they got enough cash to fund terrorists for years, without agreeing or signing anything(A one-sided deal that wasn’t a “deal”,they just faked out Obama)
Dear God, keep your hands upon Mike Pompeo and keep him safe Lord! Jesus your able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all what we ask or think!!! We love you Lord and trust in you.
Why do we keep putting up with this c*ap?
Iran’s rag heads braying and gnashing of teeth reminds me a lot of Dementia Joke O’Biden trying to read off a teleprompter or ride a bicycle.
