Trump was blamed for 3 years for not listening to intelligence. Now he responds to a real threat based on actionable intelligence and the Left goes berserk. In fact CNN’s byline now is question our intelligence first. Qassem Soleimani was killed in a Reaper Drone strike.
Indeed, all Democrats say they want to see the evidence and intelligence the president used in making the decision. They also dismissed killing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
It turns out that there are suddenly a lot of arguments that can be made for not following our intelligence. Shall we say for NOT acting in real time to take out a major terrorist actor in the midst of rolling out attacks against the US.
Who thought that was possible?
It turns out there is so much to question about intelligence, much less what to do with it. I only wish everyone had the same interest in protecting US interests and in our national security. Wouldn’t that be nice? But they don’t; and let’s not deceive ourselves.
Our basic argument against Obama on Benghazi is that he didn’t do anything. In fact he did the opposite. He stood down any response to the attack. He should have had to explain it but he never did. Actually the whole thing was a cover up and lies by Susan Rice.
Incidentally, in the aftermath of the Qassem Soleimani strike, who was the top analyst CNN brought on to talk about it? Susan Rice. In a rational world of media coverage that would be irrational. And it would have no credibility.
Whom did CNN bring on next to talk about retaliation threats from Iran against the US? That would be FBI’s discredited former General Counsel, James Baker and Dep Director Andrew McCabe. Later, James Clapper rounded out their coverage of the experts.
Democrats are blinded by politics and their hatred for Trump. Those same people who never answered for the failures in Benghazi. Never mind that attacking our embassy is an act of war. They can ignore that.
How long till the left throws intelligence under the bus? But what a shame that Benghazi didn’t even merit a whisper campaign. That denial went on for years — same people.
