In a rebuttal to the speech, a group of mainly former Obama administration foreign policy officials rejected Pompeo's assertions as petty and weak.
Cavusoglu told NTV it was not realistic to expect the United States to collect all of the weapons it had supplied to Syrian Kurdish fighters who are viewed by Ankara as terrorists. "You could read this as obscuring a continued U.S. retrenchment from Middle Eastern commitments", Alterman told Reuters news agency. "He told you that 9/11 (the September 11, 2001, al Qaeda attacks on the United States) led my country to abandon its ideals, particularly in the Middle East", Pompeo said.
Pompeo says that the age of self-inflicted American shame is over. By Tuesday evening, Erdogan was declining a meeting with the USA national security adviser who had arrived to the Turkish capital.
Brian Dooley, the group's senior adviser, said Pompeo failed to mention that Saudi Arabia's war in Yemen "repeatedly violated global law" and brushed aside the Egyptian government's "targeting of human rights activists, or of how torture in jails is driving prisoners into the arms of ISIS". "That arsenal is aimed squarely at our ally Israel".
"Our eagerness to address only Muslims, not nations, ignored the rich diversity of the Middle East, and frayed old bonds. It undermined the concept of the nation-state, the building block of worldwide stability", continued Pompeo.
He eviscerated the track record of Barack Obama, whose "desire for peace at any cost" led him to strike the 2015 nuclear deal.
"So today what did we learn from all of this?"
One Cairo-based foreign diplomat informed on the highlights of Bolton's talks in the Middle East this week said that the United States national security adviser had assured his interlocutors that the U.S. would neither risk the stability of Syria nor allow for a situation that could endanger their interests.
As one of our loyal readers, we ask you to be our partner. Since then, on January 7th he tweeted that the USA will "leave at a proper pace while at the same time continuing to fight ISIS". We have rediscovered our voice. We've rebuilt our relationships. Pompeo's first message to the Jordanian foreign minister was one he is expected to echo across the region: Washington is committed to isolating and restraining Iranian expansion. And that "99 percent of the territory ISIS once held is liberated", he said.
Since Trump's election, however, Pompeo claimed this was all changing.
Moreover, announcing future plans, he said that "America will not retreat until the terror fight is over". "We will labour tirelessly alongside you to defeat Isis [the Islamic State group], al-Qaeda and other jihadists that threaten our security and yours".
US President Donald Trumpstated on 6 January 2019 that "we will not be finally pulled out until [the Islamic State] is gone", in an apparent moderation of his initial announcement, made on 19 December, pledging to fully withdraw US troops from Syria within 30 days.
He added that the United States was facing challenges as it attempted to end involvement with the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) militant group because it was too engaged. He was accompanied on the trip to Baghdad by his wife, Susan, the US special representative for Iran, Brian Hook, and Major General Ricky Waddle, the assistant to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, among others.
Pompeo made the remarks in response to a question about whether a condition set by the USA for the pullout that requires Turkey to promise not to attack the PYD/YPG, the Syrian offshoot of the PKK terror organization, put the withdrawal at risk.
That effort is created to squeeze Senate Republicans , some of whom are growing increasingly anxious about the extended shutdown. The dispute between the White House and the Democrats centers on Trump's demand for 5.7 billion dollars of border wall funding.
