John Brennan: ‘Mike Pompeo Should Be Ashamed of What He Has Said in Cairo’ and the Way He ‘Disparaged’ Obama
BRENNAN: "Yes, and I think Mike Pompeo should be ashamed of what he has said in Cairo and the way he has disparaged former presidents and policies, in the eyes of the Arab and Muslim world. It’s very unfortunate that Donald Trump is proceeding on the foreign policy front with the lack of coherence, the lack of strategic understanding of the different pieces here. Mike Pompeo, I think he is one of Trump’s biggest sycophants. So he’s trying to make sense out of what Trump is doing. And that’s why you see the inconsistencies between what Trump says, what Pompeo says, what Bolton says. I’m sure people in the region are confused, and so I don’t know what’s being said in the private meetings but certainly what is being said publicly is a source of great confusion for all."
