  • ARTHEL: VERY FLUID SITUATION.

  • RICK LEVENTHAL, THANK YOU VERY

  • MUCH.

  • ERIC: WHAT COMES NEXT?

  • INTERNATIONAL SECURITY EXPERT

  • FOR THE MIT SECURITY STUDIES

  • PROGRAMS IS WITH US.

  • HE MET WITH OFFICIALS ABOUT THE

  • IRAN NUCLEAR PROGRAM AND

  • TESTIFIED ABOUT IRAN BEFORE THE

  • U.S. SENATE.

  • EXPELLING FOREIGN FORCES MEANING

  • US, OUR TROOPS, IS THIS

  • UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCE FOR THE

  • STRIKE AND DO YOU THINK THEY

  • WILL GO THROUGH WITH THIS.

  • >> DEFINITELY, ERIC, THIS IS

  • UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCE OF THE

  • STRIKE.

  • IRAQ REACTING TO THE FACT THAT

  • WE CARRIED OUT AN ASSASSINATION

  • ON THEIR OWN TERRITORY AND

  • KILLED SOME OF THEIR PEOPLE.

  • THAT WAS POLITICALLY

  • UNACCEPTABLE.

  • THERE ALREADY CAUGHT BETWEEN THE

  • U.S. AND IRAN AS IT WAS.

  • AND THIS JUST PUSHED IT OVER THE

  • EDGE.

  • WILL THEY ACTUALLY DO IT, ERIC?

  • I DON'T KNOW.

  • THIS IS MORE OF A SALVO.

  • IRAQ HAS A LOT OF PROBLEMS RIGHT

  • NOW.

  • MOST OF IT HAVING TO DO WITH

  • REFORM AND PROTEST MOVEMENT AND

  • THEIR OWN INTERNAL PROBLEMS.

  • THEY MAY BE JUST SOUNDING OFF

  • NOW.

  • I SORT OF DOUBT WHETHER THEY

  • FULLY PULL THE TRIGGER ON THAT.

  • BECAUSE THAT IS MORE

  • COMPLICATIONS IN A LOT FOR THEM

  • WHICH IS ALREADY DEEPLY

  • COMPLICATED.

  • ERIC: THEY HAVE A LOT OF

  • PROBLEMS WITH IRAN.

  • HOW DO YOU PREVENT FROM BECOMING

  • A SATELLITE OF TEHRAN?

  • WE SAW PROTESTS ON THE STREETS

  • IN BAGHDAD AGAINST THE

  • THEOCRATIC REGIME OF TEHRAN.

  • HOW DO OFFICIALS PUSH BACK

  • AGAINST THAT.

  • >> IRAN WAS THE COUNTRY THAT

  • KILL AD LOT OF ISIS WHEN ISIS

  • INVADED IRAQ.

  • THEY HAVE A POSITIVE BILATERAL

  • RELATIONSHIP.

  • THERE WILL BE TENSIONS.

  • IRAN WILL TRY TO ININFLUENCE

  • IRAQ AND SOMETIMES IT WILL

  • OVERPLAY ITS HAND.

  • WE SAW THE RESULT OF IRAN DOING

  • THAT EARLIER IN THE MONTH WHEN

  • YOU HAD PROTESTERS IN IRAQ

  • PROTESTING IRANIAN INFLUENCE.

  • RIGHT NOW WE YANKED THE RUG ON

  • THAT, RIGHT?

  • THEY WERE MAD AT US.

  • THEY WERE MAD AT IRANIANS.

  • THEY WERE PROTESTING THEM.

  • THAT WAS ALL BEFORE, THE FOCUS

  • IS ON US BECAUSE WE WENT TO

  • CARRY OUT THIS ASSASSINATION.

  • YOU'RE RIGHT, UNINTENDED

  • CONSEQUENCE.

  • I EXPECT THERE WILL BE MORE TO

  • FOLLOW.

  • ERIC: HERE IS SECRETARY OF STATE

  • MIKE POMPEO THIS MORNING ON

  • FOX NEWS SUNDAY TALKING ABOUT

  • THE IRAQI DECISION.

  • >> WE'VE BEEN IN THE COUNTRY.

  • WE'VE BEEN SUPPORTING IRAQI

  • SOVEREIGNTY.

  • WE'RE TALKING DOWN THE TERRORIST

  • THREAT AGAINST THE IRAQI PEOPLE.

  • THE PRIME MINISTER IS THE

  • RESIGNED PRIME MINISTER.

  • HE IS ACTING PRIME MINISTER.

  • HE IS UNDER ENORMOUS THREATS

  • FROM VERY IRANIAN LEADERSHIP IT

  • IS WE'RE PUSHING BACK AGAINST.

  • WE'RE CONFIDENT THAT THE IRAQI

  • PEOPLE WANT THE UNITED STATES TO

  • BE THERE TO FIGHT THE

  • COUNTERTERROR CAMPAIGN.

  • WE'LL DO ALL THE THINGS WE NEED

  • TO DO TO KEEP AMERICA SAFE.

  • ERIC: DO YOU THINK THAT WILL

  • HAPPEN?

  • >> I THINK THAT IS REALLY A

  • BIZARRE THING TO SAY.

  • WE'RE SAYING WE DON'T CARE WHAT

  • IRAQ THINKS.

  • WE'LL STAY IN IRAQ WHETHER THEY

  • WANT US OR NOT.

  • I DOUBT THAT IS TRUE.

  • I DON'T THINK IRAQ WILL GO ALL

  • THE WAY THROUGH.

  • THEY PASSED THE RESOLUTION

  • THROUGH THE PARLIAMENT BUT DON'T

  • COME TO THE ULTIMATE CONCLUSION.

  • MORE OPEN FIGHT WITH IRAN, THE

  • WORSE IT PUTS IRAQ IN THEIR

  • POSITION.

  • THEY ARE LITERALLY PHYSICALLY

  • CAUGHT BETWEEN US.

  • SO THIS SORT OF CONTINUING TO

  • MAKE THREATS, WE'RE GOING TO HIT

  • 52 IRANIAN TARGETS.

  • WE'RE GOING TO ATTACK THEIR

  • CULTURAL CENTERS, THAT IS NOT

  • HELPING IRAQ.

  • THEY WANT TO PUSH US AWAY.

  • THEY DON'T WANT ANY PART OF

  • THAT.

  • ERIC: THE SECRETARY OF STATE

  • MADE IT VERY CLEAR WE'LL GO

  • AFTER THE DECISIONMAKERS.

  • JEH JOHNSON, OBAMA OFFICIAL SAID

  • SOLEIMANI WAS A LAWFUL MILITARY

  • OBJECTIVE.

  • HERE IS WHAT THE SECRETARY OF

  • STATE SAID THIS MORNING ON

  • "FOX NEWS SUNDAY."

  • >> IN 2015 THE OBAMA-BIDEN

  • ADMINISTRATION ESSENTIALLY

  • HANDED POWER TO THE IRANIAN

  • LEADERSHIP.

  • ACTED AS A QUASI-ALLY OF THEIRS,

  • UNDERWRITING THEM, UNDERWRITING

  • VERY MILITIAS KILL AMERICANS,

  • RESOURCES MONEY THEY HAD TO

  • BUILDOUT THE FORCES THROUGHOUT

  • THE SHIA CRESCENT WAS PROVIDED

  • BY THE NUCLEAR DEAL.

  • WE ALLOWED EUROPEANS TO GO DO

  • BUSINESS THERE.

  • PILED UP THE CASH.

  • ALL THESE THINGS ARE THE VERY

  • CHALLENGE THAT THE TRUMP

  • ADMINISTRATION HAD TO CORRECT.

  • ERIC: FINALLY, HOW DO YOU THINK

  • THIS WILL PLAY OUT, JIM.

  • >> WOW.

  • THAT TOOK A LOT OF CHUTZPAH.

  • THEY BROKE THE AGREEMENT.

  • THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WENT IN

  • AND TRASHED THE AGREEMENT.

  • EVERYTHING WE SINCED

  • EXPERIENCED, DOWNING OF DRONES,

  • ATTACK ON AIR RAMCO IN

  • SAUDI ARABIA, ATTACK ON BASES,

  • NOW THIS BACK AND FORTH.

  • NONE OF THAT HAPPENED WHEN WE

  • HAD THE NUCLEAR AGREEMENT.

  • NONE OF THAT HAPPENED.

  • WHEN PRESIDENT TRUMP GOT OUT OF

  • THE NUCLEAR AGREEMENT HE

  • PROMISED THAT IRAN WOULD BEHAVE

  • PEACEFULLY.

  • THEY COULD --

  • ERIC: JIM.

  • ERIC: IRAN HAS BEEN ATTACKING

  • DID.

  • >> THAT IS OPPOSITE.

  • ERIC: IRAN HAS BEEN ATTACKING

  • THE WEST.

  • ISRAEL, THE BOMBING OF THE --

  • ARGENTINA.

  • ON AND ON.

  • >> NONE THAT HAPPENED DURING THE

  • IRAN DEAL.

  • TALK ABOUT WHAT IRAN DEAL

  • BETWEEN 2015 AND TIME THAT

  • MR. TRUMP BROKE THE IRAN DEAL.

  • THEY DID NONE OF THIS.

  • NONE OF IT.

  • THEY BROKE IT AND SAID, WE'LL

  • FORCE THEM TO DO OUR WILL.

  • WE'LL MAKE THEM SUBMIT AND ALL

  • WILL BE PEACEFUL AND EXACT

  • OPPOSITE HAS HAPPENED.

  • NOW THE U.S. IS IN THE BUSINESS

  • AND TO PICK UP ON YOUR POINT,

  • ERIC, WE'RE SAYING WE WILL

  • ASSASSINATE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS

  • OF OTHER COUNTRIES, NOT SINCE

  • WORLD WAR II HAS THE U.S. EVER

  • DONE THAT.

  • WELCOME TO A NEW WORLD WHICH

  • OTHER COUNTRIES THEY MAY DECIDE

  • WANT TO ASSASSINATE US FOR

  • WHATEVER REASON.

  • THAT IS NOT A WORLD WE WANT TO

  • GET INTO.

  • WE'VE CROSSED A LINE HERE.

  • WE'RE CREATING A MORE DANGEROUS

ARTHEL: VERY FLUID SITUATION.
