Iraqis demand US leave. Counter-ISIS campaign suspended. Iran abandons limits on nuclear program. All in one day. To Mike Pompeo, that and threats to kill Americans are "a little noise" and we are safer. Pompeo is dangerously dishonest and incompetent. https://t.co/a3o1iVfyKN

New *deep dive* on Soleimani killing –> Pompeo spoke to Trump about hitting the top commander months ago. Getting Trump to “yes” involved key personnel changes at the Pentagon and Trump’s aversion to being viewed as weak, giving Pompeo an opening https://t.co/5L1FmL1xWV

Two senior US officials described widespread opposition within the administration to targeting cultural sites in Iran should the U.S. launch retaliatory strikes against Tehran, despite Trump saying a day before that such sites are among potential targets. https://t.co/EnDAWDjb5X

When Trump chose the option of killing Suleimani, top military officials, flabbergasted, were immediately alarmed about the prospect of Iranian retaliatory strikes on American troops in the region. It is unclear if General Milley or Mr. Esper pushed back. https://t.co/FOPIQqzeLE

Ironic to hear Pompeo on CNN today accuse Obama and the Democrats of ‘appeasing’ Iran when it was the Reagan administration that secretly sold weapons to Tehran and it was Trump who did a property deal in Azerbaijan with oligarchs tied to the Iranian IRGC:https://t.co/xfHenm52KO
