Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accepted a Nixon Foundation award in California and accused the Biden administration of failing to appreciate that there is 'evil and there is good' in the world.

Pompeo, who along with former Trump national security advisor Robert O'Brien was given the group's 'architect of peace' award for their work on the Abraham Accords to bring Israelis and Middle East neighbors closer together, blasted the succeeding administration on Afghanistan and other issues. 

'At its very core, what the Biden administration fails to understand is there is a harsh reality out there, that there is evil and there is good,' he said. 'And if you withdraw from Afghanistan without considering the ramifications and dealing with them and making sure the conditions are right, America will be diminished.'

His statement on the 'conditions' is a likely reference to the the agreement he negotiated in Qatar, where the US committed to a timetable to pull out troops, but established commitments for the Taliban including severing ties with terror groups. 

Pompeo on behalf of President Donald Trump negotiated with the Taliban over the US exit and a drawdown of US troops to 2,500 by the time Trump left office. The Biden administration credits the deal with contributing to the chaotic total withdrawal of troops in August. 

Pompeo, a potential GOP presidential candidate, also hammered the Iran nuclear deal, which Barack Obama inked, Trump withdrew from, and Biden is seeking to renegotiate.

'If you don't make clear that you're going to be an unbreakable ally of the state of Israel, then the Iranians will provide rockets to Hamas in the Gaza Strip and they will fire them into the state of Israel,' he said, he told Fox News in an interview pegged to the event.
