Pompeo Criticizes Biden’s Response to Iran Threat as ‘Not Even a Deterrent’

Pompeo criticized Biden’s handling of the anticipated Iran threat, accusing him of effectively approving rather than deterring a potential retaliatory strike against Israel. Biden issued a warning on Friday about the possibility of an Iranian attack over the weekend, simply stating “don’t” when asked about his message to Iran.

Pompeo expressed concern about this response during an appearance on Fox News, labeling it “really dangerous.” He emphasized that saying “don’t” multiple times doesn’t constitute a robust national security policy or serve as a deterrent.

Highlighting the heightened risk of an Iranian attack, Pompeo referenced reports from U.S. officials sounding alarms. He pointed to intelligence assessments indicating Israel’s readiness for an Iranian retaliation following an attack on its embassy in Damascus.

Pompeo noted ongoing tensions, including Iranian actions targeting American interests in the region and incidents involving Iran-backed groups like Hamas and Houthi rebels.

Pompeo criticized the Biden administration‘s approach, characterizing it as a failure to protect Israel. He argued that recent events, including attacks on Israel and American interests, underscore the urgent need for a more robust response. Pompeo accused the administration of sending a signal that could embolden Iran’s hostile intentions toward Israel and the United States.

These comments from Pompeo echo his previous criticisms of the Biden administration’s stance on Iran, where he accused them of being soft on Tehran. He reiterated his view that negotiating with Iran is not viable, aligning with his longstanding opposition to diplomatic engagement with the Iranian regime.
