There is plenty he got wrong, but when have we ever before seen anyone rightfully condemn complicit imams on the floor of the House? That's a first.
We'll teach him the rest. Once Pompeo reads the Quran he will understand that it hasn't been "hijacked."

Huffington Post: Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) said Islamic leaders in America are "potentially complicit" in terrorist acts when they don't speak out against them.
Pompeo -- who cited the Fort Hood shooting and the foiled Times Square bomb plot, among other incidents -- made the remarks in a speech on the House floor Tuesday.
“Instead of responding, silence has made these Islamic leaders across America potentially complicit in these acts, and more importantly still, in those that may well follow," Pompeo said.
"Every Muslim leader must unequivocally proclaim that terror committed in the name of Islam violates the core tenets of the Prophet Mohammed, and they must do so repeatedly. Period.”
Pompeo isn't the first lawmaker to make statements condemning the Muslim community on terrorism. Former Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) tweeted that Muslims "honor killings, beheadings, suicide bombings" on Monday while condemning an column written by comedian Bill Cosby.
