Pompeo: Iran Is New Base for Al-Qaeda

The United States is placing sanctions on an Iran-based leader of Al-Qaeda. Pompeo says Iran looks to be the new Afghanistan. The terrorist group has a new home base in Iran. Iran is now the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism.

Downplaying the relationship between Iran and Al-Qaeda is detrimental, he says, because the United States needs to acknowledge the truth of the threat, confront it, and defeat it.
