The State Department announced that they are pulling all non-essential employees out of the Iraqi embassies after alleged threats from Iran.
The move comes after several attacks on U.S. interests in the Middle East, particularly focusing on oil partnerships the U.S. has with Saudi Arabia.
The New York Times has also reported that the U.S. is gearing up its defenses in the Middle East and could send an additional 120,000 troops to the region, roughly the same number of troops that sent to Iraq in 2003. But the White House has rejected this report and say there are no plans to send troops to the Middle East. (RELATED: Trump Slaps Iran With Historic Sanctions)
