The following article, Former CIA Agent Larry Johnson: Evidence Casts Doubt On Pompeo’s Iran Story, Intel Community Skeptical, was first published on Big League Politics.
Former CIA agent Larry Johnson appeared on The Campaign Show with Patrick Howley on Patriots Soapbox (6-8 PM ET Sundays on live.patriotssoapbox.com) to discuss the rush to possible war with Iran.
Johnson pointed to key evidence that suggests the United States neoconservatives are incorrect about Iran’s alleged sabotage of a pair of oil tankers, and Johnson said that the intelligence community is not happy about being pushed to go along with the story.
As U.S. allies pressed the Trump administration for more concrete evidence linking Iran to attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday that additional proof will be forthcoming.
Japan and Germany have requested stronger evidence than the grainy video released by the Pentagon appearing to show an Iranian patrol boat removing from one of the ships an item said to be an unexploded mine.
Pompeo said in appearances on CBS’s “Face the Nation” and “Fox News Sunday” that he had spent much of the weekend talking with his counterparts in foreign capitals. It was an implicit acknowledgment that he has work to do convincing the world the U.S. accusations against Iran, which has denied responsibility for the suspicious explosions last week, are indeed, as Pompeo put it, “indisputable” and “unmistakable.”
