The time has come for the United States to designate Iran’s IRGC, Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, as a terrorist organization. So says Clarion’s Shillman Fellow and National Security Analyst Ryan Mauro.

Mauro was reacting to rumors that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is mulling the move. Pompeo was in Lebanon last week where he made clear American opposition to the growing power of Iranian-backed Hezbollah in the Lebanese government.

During Pompeo’s visit both Hezbollah and Iran made direct threats to Israel, which Mauro also addresses in this interview with I24:

Not only are Iran and Hezbollah threatening Israel, they are both moving ever closer to America’s borders with reported sleeper cells on U.S. soil.
