Where is the evidence that Mike Pompeo agrees with even Donald Trump’s rhetoric on Syria and Afghanistan? And has not Pompeo called for an open-ended troop presence in Afghanistan, as well as greater U.S. involvement in Syria and for that matter the Greater Middle East.?
Yesterday I asked my friend Dr. Christopher Preble, VP for Defense and Foreign Policy Studies Cato Institute, if he had seen such evidence.
Dr. Preble responded that he has seen no evidence of the above.
Chris also said “Equally disappointing is what Sen. Paul didn’t mention: Mike Pompeo’s long standing opposition to the Iran nuclear deal.”
Preble concluded, “The JCPOA significantly reduces the likelihood that Iran will even develop a nuclear weapon, and therefore the United States should not withdraw.”
