The State Department says non-emergency U.S. embassy and consulate employees in Iraq will have to leave. That follows rising tensions with Iran, Iraq's neighbor. President Trump dismissed a report that his national security team is reviewing a plan for more than 100,000 U.S. troops to confront Iran.

US officials say it is highly likely that Iran Islamic Revolutionary Guards were responsible for Sundays attacks that blew holes in the hulls of Saudi and Norwegian tankers anchored just outside the Persian Gulf.  An Arab Diplomat told CBS news a further investigation is needed. Secretary of State Pompeo was unwilling to blame Iran.
