Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday claimed al-Qaeda’s new home base is Iran and that the group has centralized its leadership in Tehran. Pompeo didn’t provide any substantial evidence. Iranian officials immediately refuted the allegations. This comes as Iranian leaders have warned the Trump administration may be planning an attack before President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in next week.
