When it comes to understanding the players in the Middle East, few people are more informed than a former senator and vice presidential candidate from Connecticut named Joe Lieberman. The Hon. and honorable Joe Lieberman said this, in part, in a Wall Street Journal op-ed yesterday:
“President Trump’s order to take out Qassem Soleimani was morally, constitutionally and strategically correct. It deserves more bipartisan support than the begrudging or negative reactions it has received thus far from my fellow Democrats.
“The president’s decision was bold and unconventional. It’s understandable that the political class should have questions about it. But it isn’t understandable that all the questions are being raised by Democrats and all the praise is coming from Republicans. That divided response suggests the partisanship that has infected and disabled so much of U.S. domestic policy now also determines our elected leaders’ responses to major foreign-policy events and national-security issues, even the killing of a man responsible for murdering hundreds of Americans and planning to kill thousands more.”
This is the state of the country today. Unfortunately, too many of those in our political class who are willing to acknowledge when the other party has made a right move now have the term “former senator” after their names.
