Opinion by Russian MFA Spokeswoman: Maria Zakharova
Former US Secretary of State and CIA Director Mike Pompeo turned memoir writer, a few days ago released a pompously titled autobiography (https://www.amazon.com/Never-Give-Inch-Fighting-America/dp/0063247445) “Never Give an Inch: Fighting for the America I Love”…
The book has been appraised and assessed in different parts of the world. The first delicate comment (https://twitter.com/MevlutCavusoglu/status/1618509204393689091) came from the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu: “Speaking diplomatically, these assertions contain lies, exaggeration, and double standards. A number of pronouncements are not true to fact.”
Some even more interesting details emerge, when Mike Pompeo describes the “Iraqi” episodes of his career. He says that he made generous financial offers to Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi in 2017, urging him to renounce cooperation with Tehran. But, as he writes, the prime minister disregarded his overtures.
He would probably get away with it, if not for the Iraqi Foreign Ministry and Haider al-Abadi’s party coalition, Al Nasr, which made an official statement (https://www.rudaw.net/english/middleeast/iraq/30012023) to the effect that the author… was lying. Wait for it, here comes the drums roll🥁. Baghdad declared: Pompeo did not visit Iraq in 2017, nor did he meet with Al-Abadi, while the comments he ascribed to the prime minister were a figment of his imagination.
Some days ago, we marked (https://t.me/MFARussia/14736) the infamous 20th anniversary of Powell’s test tube UN presentation. Now we have learned about the nonexistent talks with the Iraqi leaders.
Pompeo would IMO be one of the most dangerous creatures ever to inhabit this planet. https://www.amazon.com/Never-Give-Inch-Fighting-America/dp/0063247445 And of course, there is the obligatory chiming in from Harvard and Stanford Unis and even an Arch-bishop – YCHMTSU!!! As a truly horrifying indictment of the place western “civilisation” has arrived at, look… Read more »

Mike is a real-life Tom Clancy American hero, and our nation is better for his service. How ironic that the first so called “reviewer” compares Pompous Pompeo to Tom Clancy, who writes a lot of fiction. No accident. That’s how far removed from the “real world” most Amewreckans live in… Read more »
They are liars after it has rightly described as an Empire of lies.
Pompous Pompeo’s book title is a misprint, it should have said: “We Lie, We Cheat, We Steal”
We remember that he said “we lie, cheat, steal” and had full training courses in how to do it. But what always smacks me right in the face, is his next sentence. It was: “It reminds one of the glory of the American experiment.” I kid you not. This is… Read more »
Amewreckan exceptionalism at its worst and most obscene.
And this creature was Trump’s SOS… say no more!
I dont follow US politics so am curious why is he trending now??? Is it part of the reinvigorated China offensive (remember he was a rabid leader of this wing) or is he positioning himself for the 2024 presidential elections? Is he really that popular in the USA?! He was… Read more »
Just my personal interpretation, AHH… his “constituency” is simply the entrenched conservatives who haven’t a clue that both the red and blue are in essence neo libs who all carry water for the global private banking kleptocrats and Klaus Slob’s WEF agendas. Neither are organic grassroots movements… they are both… Read more »
