Trump’s tweet about aborting an airstrike mission on Iran just 10 minutes before it was due to take place troubled many on Thursday night.
“The president would have been fully briefed by the generals as to, if you hit target A, here are the dangers, or here is the possible collateral damage.
So the idea that the president, 10 minutes before the actual go ― and again, The New York Times is reporting that the ships were in place, that the war planes were in the air ― that 10 minutes before you’re learning for the first time that there were going to be 150 casualties, seems pretty unlikely and certainly not the way it’s been done in the past.”He also added:
“The timeline for when he learned information and when he decided to act doesn’t make a lot of sense. You can argue if you don’t want to strike, don’t strike. If you want to strike, do strike.
But don’t send mixed messages that confuse not only your enemies but even your allies and people here in this country, as to what you’re going to do”
