Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said the killing of top Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani was part of a broader strategy to combat worldwide threats. His latest defense of the decision to kill Soleimani in a drone strike came as White House officials offered a changing explanation over the threats Soleimani posed to U.S. troops and diplomats in the Middle East.

Pompeo had earlier insisted that the Iranian commander posed an “imminent threat,” but President Trump has now said “it doesn’t really matter” if the threat was imminent because Soleimani had the blood of Americans on his hands.
