    What’s your view of the decision to kill Soleimani via drone strike and the evidence (or not) provided to justify that strike?

    It’s always the case that a president can take action that is defensive. So the question is whether this was defensive action or offensive action?

    We had the administration officials come in. They didn’t present any real evidence to indicate to any of us that there was an imminent attack that warranted the president’s action. They didn’t have any real answers. They were condescending. When people would ask for information, they’d say things like, ‘Well, you can read it.’

    Read it where?


    In some classified documents. But then they couldn’t tell us whether those classified documents would even be made available to everyone.

    We have to make decisions on behalf of the American people, and we need the information. Our system is not designed to have one person in charge of war. The administration, like past administrations, acts as though the framers of the Constitution didn’t consider these issues. They considered all these things. They understood that at times it might even slow some action; it might cause us to deliberate more than you’d have if one person were in charge. But they decided that was a good outcome for the American people.

    These positions would be reversed if you had a Democratic president. I witnessed it when you had President Obama. You had the opposite result. There’s usually a small group of fairly principled people on this issue, on each side. But that’s it — beyond that small group, people usually switch positions depending on who’s in charge.
    Yeah.

    I never thought that President Trump really believed deeply, frankly, in any particular policy. It was pretty clear his positions were dependent on how it benefits him..
    Boom. He is 100 percent right - it's not about us or the country.

    He hasn’t been good on war issues. He hasn’t been anti-war or even cautious about war. The people who have been constantly parading that — that Trump is some kind of hero who will end wars — they’re either deceiving themselves at this point or they know better.
    Forum blowback incoming....

    I’ve talked to some Democrats. You get pushback from the ones in the tougher districts. If anything, they tend to be the ones who are least concerned about reining in war powers. They view that as the kind of thing that will distinguish them in their more Republican district. The message they’re trying to send is: Look, I’m not a far-left progressive. I’m tough on terrorists.
    Of course. The word is neoconservatives. Supporting the welfare/warfare state.

    I’ll go ahead and change that title for you. I’m assuming that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards didn’t do the interview.
