(Hatha al-Youm | Iraq News)-

Congressional leaders are receiving a classified briefing on

Iran as members of both parties demand more information on the White House’s

claims of rising threats in the Middle East.The briefing Thursday with the so-called Gang of Eight comes

after Democratic lawmakers warned President Donald Trump against war with Iran

and criticized the White House for not keeping Congress informed of the rising

threat in the Middle East.The US on Wednesday ordered all nonessential personnel to

leave Iraq, and last week an aircraft carrier group and B-52 bombers were

shifted to the Gulf region.The White House says the actions are in response to an

increased threat from Iran, but they are being met with skepticism in the US

and among foreign allies.
