Secretary of State Mike Pompeo asserted Thursday that the United States will not abandon its leadership role in the Middle East, and that it won’t apologize for global leadership, in a sharp repudiation of the policies of the Obama administration.

“America is a force for good in the Middle East,” Pompeo said in an address before Egyptian officials, foreign diplomats, and students at the American University in Cairo. “We need to acknowledge that truth, because if we don’t, we make bad choices.”

“Remember: It was here, here in this very city, another American stood before you,” he said, referencing a 2009 speech by then-President Barack Obama.

“He told you that radical Islamist terrorism does not stem from ideology. He told you 9/11 led my country to abandon its ideals, particularly in the Middle East. He told you that the United States and the Muslim world needed ‘a new beginning.’ The results of these misjudgments have been dire,” Pompeo said in his speech, titled “A Force for Good: America’s Reinvigorated Role in the Middle East.”:snip:
