Mike Pompeo is approved as state secretary. CIA rules US foreign policy

27
The US Senate approved the former CIA Director Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State, 57 parliamentarians from 100 voted for his candidacy, reports RIA News.




Earlier, the former head of the CIA was supported by the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Upper Chamber of Congress. The Democrats resisted, but the Republicans still won by a margin of 2 votes. He became the first in stories States a candidate who was approved with such a small margin.

After the approval received from the Senate, the candidate is left to take the oath and begin to fulfill his official duties already without the “acting” prefix.

“De facto, Pompeo is already engaged in diplomatic work, although formally the Acting Head of the Foreign Ministry is First Deputy Head of the State Department, John Sullivan,” the agency notes.

Recall that last week Pompeo held talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in anticipation of the upcoming meeting of the latter with the US president.

          No! Rather, he is a rabid rapist and a hardened butcher in the international arena!
          Pompeo is the creature of the US military-industrial complex.

            Somehow recently, the feeling is growing that all these wars are not just real, but well-designed performances.

            Everything seems scary, 3rd world, victims,
            but in fact - there is no evidence of the dead (units do not count, the real victims of hostilities, ours or Western)

            All military-themed performances are well written and staged, each side gets its own bonuses,
            each side benefits!
            Whatever happens, everything has to do with money

            What role does Russia have in this?
            Does it work out for us or is it still pushing us out of the world stage, both economic and political?

            It may very well be. And GDP at one time was a creature from the FSB.
            It is believed that they decided to carry out a similar "move".
            So Pompeo will sit until the end of the Trump term, they will give him a “warm-up” for this period in the form of quite feasible and high-profile instructions for seeding the electorate - and there, you see, the staffing analogue of Putin will mature, but there will be popular support.

      “Today, in connection with the swearing in of Michael Pompeo as US Secretary of State, CIA Deputy Director Gene Huspel has taken over the duties of the acting head of the CIA", - said in an official statement of the department. The New York Times published material that details the terrible torture that Haspel participated in in 2002. So, one of the arrestees of Abu Zubayd was tortured 83 times in one month only, which imitates drowning. And also he was repeatedly hit with his head against the wall. Torture videos were kept until 2005. It is known that Zubaid accused of terrorismhowever, as the publications note, evidence of his guilt was never presented.
      After Haspel was transferred to the central intelligence unit in Langley, she ordered that all videos of the brutal interrogations be destroyed.
      "The CIA is led by a torture lover and the most brutal overseer in the United States. " (TV "Tsargrad", 06:42, 27/04/18)

        They say Trump is very pleased with her. Maybe due to put her at the head of the CIA, and Pompeo was removed. He will stay a bit in his current position, as usual, will not cope. And there is no turning back.

      Of course you live, they live in North Korea. And then in the end we went to a meeting with Mike Pompeo, because they do not want to live in sanctions and poverty. I want real medicines, not oak bark and hawthorn.

        One caveat: the opinion of citizens in the DPRK, their political leadership is not interested. As they decide, so will the country live. And the elite has no problems with medicines there.

          Interested in, as in the end, and they can visit the revolution.

          Of course, the people there very much crushed the people by propaganda and other things, but the people there too slowly understand that people around them live much better.

            There before the revolution, as before one famous city with cancer. Until the debunking of the cult of personality of all Kims begins, nothing will happen. How do people know how the rest of the world lives, if there is nowhere to find out about it? There is no way to organize a color revolution, there is nobody to simply.

    Yet American politics and diplomacy are hard to understand. Pompeo was not yet approved at the post, held a meeting with Kim Jong-un, which means he was solving some public tasks and represented the US State Department. Isn't it strange? Although the Americans are contrary to logic, law and decency.

      What is strange if he held before the change of position, the post of director of the CIA wassat
      Only 26.4 Gina Haspel officially took his place.

        He visited the DPRK not as the director of the CIA, but as a representative of Trump and a candidate for the post of secretary of state.

    Typically, a position greatly transforms human behavior. A different horizon of vision, a different responsibility for the decisions made ... But it is unlikely that this applies to Pompeo. It’s worse nowhere! Although - they’ll come up ... Oh, something, but on the dirty tricks, the arrogant Saxons are much more!

    CIA rules US foreign policy


    A strange title, given that he was the director of the CIA for just a little over a year.

    In Russia, at the time of Ona, the whole head of the government, not bad, by the way, was the former head of the Foreign Intelligence Service, and did nothing.
