Iran Rejects Pompeo Claim It Provides Sanctuary to Al-Qaeda

TEHRAN – Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, on Tuesday rejected an allegation by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that Iran is now Al Qaeda’s “home port”.
“From Cuba’s designation to Iran’s fictitious ‘declassifications’ and QA claims, Mr.” we lie, cheat, steal “pathetically ends his disastrous career with more hawkish lies,” Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Twitter.
“No one is fooled. All of the 9/11 terrorists were from @ SecPompeo’s favorite ME destinations; NONE from Iran.” He was referring to the Middle East.
Pompeo admitted in a Texas AM University hearing on April 15, 2019 that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) specially trains employees to “lie, cheat and steal.”
“I was the director of the CIA. We lied, we cheated, we stole. We had entire training courses,” Pompeo said.
Pompeo on Tuesday accused Iranian leaders of providing “a sanctuary for senior leaders of the terrorist group as they plan attacks on America and our allies.”
“The Iran-al-Qaeda axis poses a serious threat to the security of nations and to the American homeland itself, and we are taking action,” he said in a statement.
“Today, we are calling attention to the nature of the Iran-al-Qaeda relationship and taking the necessary steps to crush al-Qaeda and its ties to Iran. We urge all nations to do the same – for the good of our nations and the free world.a”
