Im confused how Trump didn't know that there were 150 potential casualties until 10 minutes before operation. Something is fishy, especially when he "knows more than the generals"
Would he not need Congress approval for a strike, I don't see where there was an imminent threat to US by them shooting down a drone? Then again I am not privy to the same information he is but it makes no sense to me.

I think the 150 "potential" casualties is a carefully worded tactic.

Do you think it is strange that just 10 minutes before the strike 150 people are discovered to be in harms way?

A general briefed Trump that 150 would die even though the Prez. has claimed to know more than they do. Demagoguery at its finest.

You work for CNN? Sure sound like them. And the other MSM's too. All of them know not of what they speak except they hate Trump.

No...part of the Iranian military is labeled a terrorist organization. Not to mention the war powers act.

Maybe the fact that he had the chance to kill 150 innocent people weighed on his conscience a bit...
