America’s Best Diplomat

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Our seventieth Secretary of State is arguably the best in our nation’s history. Certainly, few, if any, can match Mike Pompeo’s brilliance, his clarity about America’s vital role in the world and his courage in countering the dangers we face internationally. Consider two examples of such leadership just this week:

Yesterday, Mr. Pompeo teamed up with a former American hostage in Iran to reject any reversion to a policy of appeasement towards Tehran’s mullahs. Thanks to the Iranian regime’s strategic alliance with Al Qaeda, doing otherwise would effectively strengthen not just one, but two, of our most dangerous enemies.

The day before, Secretary Pompeo gave some tough love about American exceptionalism to people charged with promoting it to the world – employees of the Voice of America. That mission has been neglected for too long and must be made a priority for Team Biden.

This is Frank Gaffney.
