Iran’s supreme leader is vowing ‘a forceful revenge.’ Iranian leaders called on Friday for revenge against the United States after the killing of Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani in an overnight drone strike at the Baghdad airport. The strike spurred mass displays of public mourning by Iran and its network of allies across the Middle East. Mr. Pompeo also told his foreign counterparts that the United States was committed to de-escalation, according to the State Department. One American official familiar with the internal discussions about the drone strike said the administration was still trying to figure out what would come next and how to be prepared for it.
