Secretary of State Mike Pompeo asserted that “reports that Iranian diplomats were involved in an assassination of a dissident in Turkey are disturbing but fully consistent with their assignments – Iran's ‘diplomats’ are agents of terror and have conducted multiple assassinations and bomb plots in Europe over the past decade”. Iran’s diplomatic spokesperson hit back saying: “U.S. ‘diplomats’ have long been in the business of coups, arming terrorists, fueling sectarian violence, supporting narcotics cartels, bullying governments and companies, spying on even U.S. allies, flirting with dictators, butchers and terrorists, etc… But Secretary Pompeo (Mr. CIA also known as Secretary of Hate) and his masters have taken the ‘job’ to a whole new level: Medical terrorism. That’s why he has a consistence so filled with guilt that resorts to such psychological projection”.
