Trump officials struggle to defend claims of embassy plots

"Keeping him on a State Department officials tell C. N. N.'s Kylie Atwood that department personnel involved in embassy. Security were not made aware of any such threats to force specific embassies and they weren't alone. Neither was the secretary of Defense Mark. Asper who spent much of Sunday morning on the Washington talkshows trying to explain the president's it's clan for the president didn't say there was a tangible. He didn't cite a specific piece of evidence. What he says he probably he believes one? I I didn't see one with regard to four embassies so he didn't see a imminent attack on with regard to for embassies that was yesterday today. The president and says it really doesn't matter. The irony is seen in global affairs analyst. Max Boot writes in The Washington Post. There actually are a number of legitimate justifications for killing Sulejmani the president could have turned to you if you weren't so invested in what now appears to be dramatic but increasingly questionable one boot rights what the administration is doing legally and perhaps even strategically justifiable. All trump has to do is come clean with the American people instead. The president seems to be doing the opposite. And when that doesn't work doing this retweeting a doctor photo. The House Speaker and Senate Minority Leader in front of Iranian flag. Big Dresses you see them. Join US now senator. Tim Kaine Democratic. Virginia's introduce the war powers resolution on Iran. Senator Kaine the fact that this ministration when all else fails is trying to come up with an explanation. The Nation has now turned to just insulting Democrats in a way that at the same time. He claims to be standing with the Iranian people. He is draping being. You Know Democrats in in garb that is worn by Iranians and that's an insult according to the president. Well look. He's insulting insulting Democrats but Anderson the real issues. He's insulting all of Congress and the Constitution. The constitution says we shouldn't go to war without deliberation by Congress and when the administration briefers came last week many days after the Sulejmani strike to finally brief us. They were contemptuous of Congress. They acted like we were an annoyance. Rather than we were part of the constitutional framework. The reason that Congress is supposed to declare. War is a so we don't rush into it and be if we're going to order order our best and brightest or risk their lives at risk their health. It should be based upon a debate in full view of the American public. Where we end up saying this is a war? That's in the national interest. The the president wants to insult not just Democrats with stupid juvenile tweets. He's insulting all of Congress by pretending the Congress doesn't doesn't have a role in more making do you. You believe the explanation is coming from the White House specifically the president saying this all the money was targeting four embassies or no no no absolutely not no I think when when the evidence was is presented to us last week in the classified setting. I can't talk about the discussions there but I can tell you this. It added up too far less than an imminent threat. And that's the real key issue. The president can always defend the nation against an imminent attack without seeking anybody's permission. But if he wants to go on offense and wage war against another nation or a group he's got to come to Congress for permission he didn't want to seek permission so they tried to suggest that there was this imminent threat but as you point out it's falling apart. The President President makes up this thing about four embassies. We heard nothing about that. And the State Department itself in the embassies affected were not given notice that they were at risk so money was obviously a you. Know a thug. Killer Rod guy for the deaths of many Americans and many many others what would have been wrong about killing him and and just saying well you know in general he's plots attacks and he plots Actions against US interests. Would that have been okay well. Look here's the situation. It wasn't just the killing. The Sola Mani Anderson it was that they killed him without notifying Congress or seeking congressional national approval when there's never been a declaration of war against Ron and they killed him on Iraqi soil Iraq as an ally of ours and they've objected to the US turning Iraq into a like a coliseum where the US and Iran will wage war to the detriment of Iraqi. So what you've ended up doing is nobody said that souleymane he's gone bad actors. Sure but this president has rushed us to the brink of war where Iran and the United States are now. Inflicting battlefield casualties zero on the other without being a plane with Congress and with the American public we got lied into a war with Iraq in two thousand and two and now everybody realizes is that the administration said there were weapons of mass destruction of the work. The last thing we need to do is to be lied into another war with claims of imminent threats. That didn't exist. The sheer a number of inconsistencies that are routinely coming out of the administration. I mean outright lies whatever you WANNA call it. Are you concerned about the message. It sends sends to both allies and episodes of both I. The allies begged US stick with diplomatic deal against Ron. You curtail their nuclear your program and you've maintained all of your ability to sanction the other behavior so we have we have really messed up our relations with our allies by walking out of a deal that we worked on together with them as well as the president's horrible remarks about so many of our allies. Now we've threatened the relationship with Iraq as you know Anderson this is a relationship shipped the US has earned with blood and treasure sacrificed on behalf of the Iraqis especially in the battle against Isis. And now Iraq is asking the US us to leave the country because we we ignored their objections to doing military strikes on Iraqi soil. So yes we have made our allies mad. We're emboldening our adversaries. Russia Iran and China just a joint naval exercises in the Gulf. These are nations. That don't have a good. The history of relationships with each other but the president's actions are driving our adversaries together and this is exactly why the framers of the Constitution said look war.

Trump officials struggle to defend claims of embassy plots

"Keeping him on a State Department officials tell C. N. N.'s Kylie Atwood that department personnel involved in embassy. Security were not made aware of any such threats to force specific embassies and they weren't alone. Neither was the secretary of Defense Mark. Asper who spent much of Sunday morning on the Washington talkshows trying to explain the president's it's clan for the president didn't say there was a tangible. He didn't cite a specific piece of evidence. What he says he probably he believes one? I I didn't see one with regard to four embassies so he didn't see a imminent attack on with regard to for embassies that was yesterday today. The president and says it really doesn't matter. The irony is seen in global affairs analyst. Max Boot writes in The Washington Post. There actually are a number of legitimate justifications for killing Sulejmani the president could have turned to you if you weren't so invested in what now appears to be dramatic but increasingly questionable one boot rights what the administration is doing legally and perhaps even strategically justifiable. All trump has to do is come clean with the American people instead. The president seems to be doing the opposite. And when that doesn't work doing this retweeting a doctor photo. The House Speaker and Senate Minority Leader in front of Iranian flag. Big Dresses you see them. Join US now senator. Tim Kaine Democratic. Virginia's introduce the war powers resolution on Iran. Senator Kaine the fact that this ministration when all else fails is trying to come up with an explanation. The Nation has now turned to just insulting Democrats in a way that at the same time. He claims to be standing with the Iranian people. He is draping being. You Know Democrats in in garb that is worn by Iranians and that's an insult according to the president. Well look. He's insulting insulting Democrats but Anderson the real issues. He's insulting all of Congress and the Constitution. The constitution says we shouldn't go to war without deliberation by Congress and when the administration briefers came last week many days after the Sulejmani strike to finally brief us. They were contemptuous of Congress. They acted like we were an annoyance. Rather than we were part of the constitutional framework. The reason that Congress is supposed to declare. War is a so we don't rush into it and be if we're going to order order our best and brightest or risk their lives at risk their health. It should be based upon a debate in full view of the American public. Where we end up saying this is a war? That's in the national interest. The the president wants to insult not just Democrats with stupid juvenile tweets. He's insulting all of Congress by pretending the Congress doesn't doesn't have a role in more making do you. You believe the explanation is coming from the White House specifically the president saying this all the money was targeting four embassies or no no no absolutely not no I think when when the evidence was is presented to us last week in the classified setting. I can't talk about the discussions there but I can tell you this. It added up too far less than an imminent threat. And that's the real key issue. The president can always defend the nation against an imminent attack without seeking anybody's permission. But if he wants to go on offense and wage war against another nation or a group he's got to come to Congress for permission he didn't want to seek permission so they tried to suggest that there was this imminent threat but as you point out it's falling apart. The President President makes up this thing about four embassies. We heard nothing about that. And the State Department itself in the embassies affected were not given notice that they were at risk so money was obviously a you. Know a thug. Killer Rod guy for the deaths of many Americans and many many others what would have been wrong about killing him and and just saying well you know in general he's plots attacks and he plots Actions against US interests. Would that have been okay well. Look here's the situation. It wasn't just the killing. The Sola Mani Anderson it was that they killed him without notifying Congress or seeking congressional national approval when there's never been a declaration of war against Ron and they killed him on Iraqi soil Iraq as an ally of ours and they've objected to the US turning Iraq into a like a coliseum where the US and Iran will wage war to the detriment of Iraqi. So what you've ended up doing is nobody said that souleymane he's gone bad actors. Sure but this president has rushed us to the brink of war where Iran and the United States are now. Inflicting battlefield casualties zero on the other without being a plane with Congress and with the American public we got lied into a war with Iraq in two thousand and two and now everybody realizes is that the administration said there were weapons of mass destruction of the work. The last thing we need to do is to be lied into another war with claims of imminent threats. That didn't exist. The sheer a number of inconsistencies that are routinely coming out of the administration. I mean outright lies whatever you WANNA call it. Are you concerned about the message. It sends sends to both allies and episodes of both I. The allies begged US stick with diplomatic deal against Ron. You curtail their nuclear your program and you've maintained all of your ability to sanction the other behavior so we have we have really messed up our relations with our allies by walking out of a deal that we worked on together with them as well as the president's horrible remarks about so many of our allies. Now we've threatened the relationship with Iraq as you know Anderson this is a relationship shipped the US has earned with blood and treasure sacrificed on behalf of the Iraqis especially in the battle against Isis. And now Iraq is asking the US us to leave the country because we we ignored their objections to doing military strikes on Iraqi soil. So yes we have made our allies mad. We're emboldening our adversaries. Russia Iran and China just a joint naval exercises in the Gulf. These are nations. That don't have a good. The history of relationships with each other but the president's actions are driving our adversaries together and this is exactly why the framers of the Constitution said look war. I should be deliberated about carefully in front of the whole view of the American public because we shouldn't be ordering our troops to risk their lives and health unless Congress is willing to put their thumbprint on it. We don't want this president or any president to take us into an unnecessary war on his
