Pompeo Reportedly Meets Mossad Chief in Washingon
Outgoing US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has reportedly been spotted dining with Yossi Cohen, head of Israeli Mossad spy agency, at a café in Washington a head of a planned anti-Iran speech by the top US diplomat.
The White House reporter for US-based POLITICO reported the news in a tweet published on Monday night.
The meeting came one day before Pompeo’s televised speech at the National Press Club in Washington, where he reportedly plans to use what is said to be “declassified US intelligence” to publicly accuse Iran of alleged ties with the al-Qaeda militant group, according to the reporter.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters that Pompeo is expected to claim that Iran has allegedly given ‘safe haven’ to al-Qaeda leaders despite some skepticism within the intelligence community and Congress.
