CIA Working to Counter Iran's Influence

The US is making efforts to "push back" against Iran's measures that it believes are threatening US interests, CIA Director Mike Pompeo said. "We are working diligently to figure out how to push back against Iran, not only in the nuclear arena but in all the other spaces as well," Bloomberg quoted him as saying Thursday in a speech at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado. Pompeo claimed Iran has a "significant foothold" in Syria and is seeking to create a corridor through Syria and Iraq as part of its effort to become the "kingpin" of the Middle East. “When we have our strategy in place, I’m confident you will see a fundamental shift in policy” towards Iran, Pompeo said.
