Yesterday was a great day for American freedom and safety as the United States used a Massive Ordinance Air Blast (MOAB), killing 36 ISIS fighters operating out of Afghanistan.
John Nicholson, commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan said that this was “the right time” to deploy this weapon and the Afghan Defence Ministry confirmed that “no civilian has been hurt and only the base, which Daesh used to launch attacks in other parts of the province, was destroyed.”
Predictably, Elizabeth Warren still questioned the strike when it was brought up at her town hall in Salem, MA last night, asking “why this was the right bomb and why this was the right moment,” despite General Nicholson’s comments. She also raised concerns about the strategy behind the attack that destroyed terrorists who represent a threat to the United States and our allies:
SEN. WARREN: “You know, I want to hear more from the generals out in the field about why they thought this was the right bomb and this was the right moment. As is the case with every part of Trump’s foreign policy, we’re all trying to understand what is the strategy? What is our overall purpose here and so far, we’re just not hearing it.”
REPORTER: “Do you think this was more of a message to North Korea?
SEN. WARREN: “You know, if we can’t figure out what it means, it’s sort of hard to make that a message.”
Warren is so enamored with trying to build a 2020 presidential campaign that she can’t even credit this Administration for a successful attack that eliminated America’s enemies. These comments reveal her continued naïveté on complex foreign policy issues and a true lack of understanding about the grave threat posed to our nation by ISIS.
