Pompeo doubles down on criticism of Kerry: The Iran deal failed, ‘let it go’

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo doubled down on his criticism of former Secretary of State John Kerry on Saturday, accusing Kerry of “unseemly” contacts within Iran’s government.

In a pair of tweets, Pompeo appeared to mock Kerry over the United State’s withdrawal earlier this year from the Obama-era Iran nuclear agreement that was signed under Kerry’s stewardship. In his tweets, Pompeo also accused Kerry again of “unprecedented” contact with “the world’s top state sponsor of terror.”

“What @JohnKerry has done by engaging with #Iran’s regime, the world’s top state sponsor of terror, is unseemly, unprecedented, and inconsistent with U.S. foreign policy. The deal failed. Let it go,” Pompeo tweeted.

“#JCPOA didn’t stop all paths for #Iran to develop nuclear weapons, contrary to the way it was sold to the American people,” Pompeo added in a second message, referring to the Iran deal.

Kerry is going to have to answer for this eventually.
