Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has accused #Iran of actively supporting and being the base of operations for al-Qaeda (AQ). Pompeo asserted that the relationship between Iran and AQ “changed in 2015 — the same year that the Obama Administration and the ‘E-3’ — #France, #Germany, and #Britain — were finalizing the [Iran nuclear deal]” and accused the IRGC and Iranian intelligence of providing “safe havens and logistical support — like travel documents, ID cards, and passports — that enable Al Qaeda activity.” Iran’s foreign ministry has responded by saying “Mr. ‘we lie, cheat, steal’ is pathetically ending his disastrous career with more warmongering lies.” The accusations came as Pompeo officially confirmed the death of AQ second in command Abu Muhammad al-Masri, who was reportedly gunned down over the summer by Mossad agents in #Tehran.
