We love this! Trump has picked one of the biggest critics of Obama’s Iran deal to head up the CIA. Trump had slammed the Iran deal on the campaign trail as a terrible mistake that needed to be thrown out. Kansas Congressman Mike Pompeo was also one of the biggest critics of the deal. In fact, Pompeo Tweeted this statement yesterday regarding the “disastrous deal”:
The main stream media wasted no time in trashing Congressman Pompeo and his supposed “anti-Islamic rhetoric”:
Pompeo, of Wichita, met with the president-elect’s transition team in New York’s Trump Tower earlier this week. He is a member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence and has been an ardent supporter of the Patriot Act and the National Security Agency’s collection of bulk data.

In 2013 Pompeo declared in a speech on the House floor that silence from Muslim leaders in the face of terror makes them “potentially complicit”:
“When the most devastating terrorist attacks on America in the last 20 years come overwhelmingly from people of a single faith and are performed in the name of that faith, a special obligation falls on those that are the leaders of that faith.”
The left is also going ballistic because Pompeo has ties to the NRA and to the Koch Brothers.
