The secretary of state is allegedly opposed the withdrawal. He has since spoken out in defence of government decisions, however, and has spent the past few days reassuring nervous allies in the region.
In a contradictory and at times misinforming speech delivered in Egypt on Thursday, Pompeo lambasted former President Barack Obama’s “fundamental misunderstandings” about the Middle eastern countries while declaring the “age of self-inflicted American shame” in the region to be “over” under Trump.
Carrey’s caricature of the former CIA director includes a reference to the former chairwoman. “Obama is a better humankind than me, ” reads the drawing.
