Qasem Soleimani, Iran's top operative in the Middle East, killed by a US strike on January 3, 2020

Pompeo: The Taliban Knew We Were Serious When They Saw Attack On Soleimani

10/1/2021

Mike Pompeo has said Friday that the Taliban took the Trump Administration seriously after the killing of Iran's Qassem Soleimani in 2020.

Former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted: "The Taliban knew our government was very serious because they saw our attack on Qassem Soleimani and the elimination of ISIS. "They knew that if they acted in a way that was inconsistent with American interests, we would destroy them."

President Joe Biden has been criticized for the hasty withdrawal from Afghanistan that led to a quick takeover by the Taliban. The Biden administrations says that the decision to withdraw and an agreement with the Taliban was reached by the Trump administration.

Soleimani was killed in a US drone strike in Baghdad on January 3, 2020, ordered by former president Donald Trump, to eliminate impending terror threats, the US said at the time.
