The latest round of threats coming from Iran directed at American troops are “real,” according to Senator Lindsey Graham, despite mixed messages coming from mainstream sources.

On Saturday, Graham said he was briefed by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. As a result, he now has a better understanding on why the Trump Administration decided to evacuate embassies and consulates in Iraq, as well as move military close to the region.

Graham released a statement on Twitter after being briefed by Pompeo.

It read, “Just received a briefing from Secretary Pompeo about the growing crisis in Iraq generated by Iranian threats to American personnel there and throughout the region.”
