US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo denounces the “child-like” map released by Iran, purporting to show that a US drone entered its airspace in May.
“You’ve seen that child-like map that Foreign Minister (Mohammad Javad) Zarif put out that contrasts with the excellence and professionalism of America’s military and intelligence services,” Pompeo tells reporters as he leaves on a trip to US allies Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
Pompeo says the map “should leave no doubt in anyone’s mind about where that unarmed vehicle was — it was flying in international airspace.”
More evidence—including encroachment of a MQ9 spy drone on 5/26, speedboat purchases & phone calls planning to attribute ship attacks to Iran—indicate #B_Team was moments away from trapping @realDonaldTrump into a war. Prudence prevented it, but #EconomicTerrorism brings tension. pic.twitter.com/LmWJTDvt2O
