Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Takes Military Intervention in Iran Off the Table for Now

The Hill reports that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told a group of Iranian American political activists that the U.S. government is not pursuing regime change in Iran via direct military intervention.

According to an Axios report, Pompeo met with 15 Iranian leaders last Monday at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel.

Some of the sources present at the meeting claimed that Pompeo was asked multiple times “If regime change does not occur internally what is the endgame?”
