WASHINGTON — In word and deed, the administration of President Donald Trump has been sounding the alarm over Iran and its proxies.
“If American interests are attacked, we will most certainly respond in an appropriate fashion,” U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned last week.
Later this week, U.S. officials are expected to brief lawmakers on what has led the administration to strengthen America’s military posture in the Middle East, while evacuating non-essential personnel from diplomatic facilities in Iraq.
Members of Congress of both parties have been demanding the White House share information about perceived threats from Iran.
“I would urge the State Department and DoD (Department of Defense) to come down here and explain to us what is going on, because I have no idea what the threat stream is beyond what I read in the paper,” said Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham.
