♪ ♪ >> raymond: i'm raymond arroyo in for laura ingraham. this is "the ingraham angle" from new york city tonight. we have the latest from iraq and the breaking news from the region. what are the next steps in the wake of the u.s. strike on that iranian terrorist mastermind? should we be worried about retaliation from iran? and why are democrats so outraged that trump took out another bad guy? congressman matt gaetz and lee zeldin are here, along with walid phares, and also, was soleimani a brutal murder or a revered leader? some of the media seem confused. tammy bruce and matt schlapp will expose it all. and stay until the end of the show tonight, we have something special. friday follies, i will be joined by two incredible guests. trump upsets liberal hollywood
11:01 pm
by taking out a terrorist, and i hit the streets to discover if seniors are playing more video games. joining the right hearing studio, you don't want to miss this. but first, iran is vowing revenge for the killing with revolutionary guard leader in an air strike yesterday. it's not clear how they will retaliate, but u.s. troops and security officials are on high alert, and now, there are reports of another deadly air strike on iranian backed militias in iraq. for the latest details, we go to fox's benjamin hall, who is life in amman, jordan. benjamin? >> raymond, good evening from jordan. all day, we will been waiting for some possible retaliation from the irradiance, but out of nowhere came a surprise announcement that there may have been another u.s. strike just north of baghdad. it is not yet confirmed, but early reports suggest that it may have targeted two cars, one of them carrying a key finance facilitator close.
11:02 pm
but of course, the man everyone is still talking about, the man said of the architect of iran's foreign aggression, as well as terrorism. he is also responsible for the death of hundreds of u.s. soldiers. that attack took place early this morning as he was leaving baghdad airport. he had just flown in from lebanon, and his convoy was struck by a reaper drone. with him was the head of the militia which led the attack on the u.s. embassy earlier this week. qassem soleimani was said to be developing plans for further imminent attacks against americans in the region. iran has said it will retaliate and the state department told americans to leave iraq immediately. the strike is also strained u.s.-iraqi relations, and tomorrow, the prime minister will convene parliament. he says the attack violates the terms of the agreement under which u.s. troops are in iraq, and they might be asked to leave.
11:03 pm
but for now, 4,000 more troops being deployed to the region. the u.s. are saying it is an appropriate and precautionary reaction, but despite the build up, president trump has made it clear the u.s. does not want war with iran. it should have come in previous administrations. it happened now because the opportunity was there, and also because it saves lives. raymond? >> raymond: benjamin, thank you, and be safe out there. iran may be threatening to retaliate, but president trump today had a stern message for the islamic republic. >> we do not seek water. we do not seek nation-building. we would do not seek regime change. but as president, i will never hesitate to defend the safety of the american people. you. [applause] so let this be a warning to terrorists, if you value your own life, you will not threaten the lives of our citizens.
11:04 pm
>> raymond: joining me now if analysis is retired lieutenant colonel daniel davis. senior fellow and military expert of defense properties. also, walid phares, fox news foreign analyst, and congressman mark green of the house homeland security committee, and a former special operations flight surgeon. thank you all for being here. colonel davis, might harsh retaliation from iran, what might that look like? give me an idea of how they might retaliate when they say "harsh retaliation." >> yeah, they are going to probably go after -- soft of targets as they can, targets of opportunity, that's primarily american military bases scattered throughout parts of iraq, where they have the greatest access to our troops. that's probably who is at the greatest risk right now, which underscores why i've been saying for many months that we need to withdraw our troops and limit the strategic risk that we have, because they are not doing anything to protect our security
11:05 pm
right now, and their military mission that trump sent them over on his long since accomplished, and we significantly lower the risk and make it even harder for iran to do anything in retaliation. >> raymond: walid, might they have the capability of reaching the homeland? that is the big question here. >> yes, they do have this capability. our national security agents are aware of that. but the iranians are rational, so they calculate of the reaction, and strike back, iran is not an empire, cannot sustain a direct clash with the united states, even if they isolate a patrol or an individual, but at the end of the day, they see that for one attack known against the embassy, there is a lot of leadership, and that is a strategic lesson they have learned. >> raymond: have to play something for you. obama's former acting cia director was glad to see soleimani gone, but also offered this dire warning on cbs.
11:06 pm
watch. >> the world is a better place without him. the problem is that comes at a very high cost. number one, there will be dead americans, dead civilian americans, as a result of this, possibly over the next few days, at a time and place of their choosing, they are going to conduct a terrorist strike, that kills a senior american official, and that could be anywhere in the world. >> raymond: congressman green, do you believe they have the capability to reach a u.s. senior official, and kill them? >> thanks, raymond, for having me on this show, and first, i want to give a shout out to the men and women of the u.s. military who took this thug out. i did these kind of missions myself. their bravery is what needs to be getting a shout out here. but yes, iran has considerable capability, to go kinetic, they can do rocket attacks on our military forces in the region. also at risk when the troops to
11:07 pm
transfer or on roads, improved ieds and armor piercing ieds are very dangerous. and our southern border -- we can't get the democrats to help us to secure our southern border, so yeah, absolutely, there is an opportunity for dead americans. >> raymond: frightening. former u.n. ambassador susan rice doesn't think killing soleimani was quite worth it. i want you all to listen to this. >> it's not clear that when you look at the strategic landscape and the cost and the consequences of such an action, whether the benefits outweigh the real risks. >> did the president, president trump, do the right thing? >> that's a very complicated question, and i am doubtful that ultimately it will prove to be the right thing. >> are americans safer today than two days ago? >> i don't think so. >> raymond: colonel davis, this is the one who claimed benghazi was caused by a movie. is she right? are we know safer after killing soleimani? >> in the near term, it may be at least at some of the troops
11:08 pm
are at higher risk than they might have been. other people in the region are at higher risk because of the actions that were taken here, but that's part of the calculated risk that we take, but the question is, are they going to do that? are they going to risk from as president trump made very clear today, that he would have even stronger retaliation, were that to happen? but also, we've got to be honest, that underscores the danger of cascading retaliation to where it could potentially spill into a war, and that would be absolutely the worst thing in our interest. >> raymond: walid phares, in my reading, i've discovered that two administrations, obama and bush, have the option of taking this guy out, this mastermind in iran who spread such mischief and mayhem all across the middle east. they decided not to do it. why was now the right time? >> first of all, why they decided not to do it is very important, and rather than the obama administration, engage in negotiating the iran deal, for that purpose, they let a lot of these militias operate, from
11:09 pm
hezbollah to others across the region, we lost basically four or five years of counting these militias because of the iran deal, which was ended, the end of the day, and the last two years of the bush and administration were difficult because of sharp opposition, when congress has changed majority. now the trump administration has this opportunity, not just because we are superior on the military level, the people of the region are rising, and i am surprised -- we've seen millions of iraqis demonstrating against iraq is about to tip over, iran is the same thing. that is not part of the analysis at all. we think iran is as strong as it was before. >> raymond: we are going to get to all of that. gentlemen, i want to remind people how we got here, in iraq. the baath party came to power in the 1970s, saddam hussein became
11:10 pm
dictator in 1979. he was repelled with operation desert storm. years later, fearing he would use weapons of mass destruction in the aftermath of 9/11, president george w. bush sent troops into iraq in 2003. while ousting saddam might it seem like a good idea at the time, it unleashed a string of unintended consequences that empowered iran. the mullahs began to exercise control within the iraqi government, supporting shiite islamic groups and militia groups, nearly 5,000 u.s. soldiers were killed, and we spent in excess of a trillion dollars. the utter incompetence of the last administration only made things worse, despite the military pullbacks, united states personnel are still deeply committed in the region. i want you all to look at this map. there are 5,000 troops in iraq today.
11:11 pm
not counting the 3,750 additional troops the president has just deployed. in jordan, there are 2,795 troops. 13,000 in kuwait, and 12,000 in afghanistan. lieutenant colonel daniel davis, walid phares, congressman mark green, i want to bring you all in on this. colonel, aren't these troops more targets for the iranians? i understand targeted strikes, but shouldn't we be pulling back, rather than sending more troops to this very unstable region? >> absolutely. i couldn't agree with you any more strongly. that's one of the things president trump ran on, was to end these endless wars, that's why the american people voted for him, and it makes a lot of tactical sense. i can assure you, i fought in four combat deployments in this area, and i know they are not going to accomplish anything. those small number of troops there, we definitely need to withdraw them, get them out of harm's way, because they are not defending our interests, anyway, and so that gives us a lot more freedom, and now, then, that leave the iraqis and the iranians to have to deal with the political turmoil in their
11:12 pm
own countries. >> raymond: congressman green, you interrogated saddam hussein very briefly. tell me what you told you, and looking in retrospect, was it folly to remove saddam hussein when he was holding down many of these islamic elements that we've seen bubble up, and in many ways destroy the civil society of that country? >> no, i don't think so at all. i think it was the right thing to do. he was a murderous dictator. we know he was mustard agent on his own people. we have the images. >> raymond: murderous dictators across the world, in sudan, syria, right now still in power. do remove them all? >> well, if you've got a guy like saddam hussein, and if you look at the intelligence that we had at the time, which there was good intelligence that he might have a nuclear -- he was looking for the material, i think it was the appropriate thing. some of the mistakes that happened afterwords, we did not do a great job in nation building, but taking saddam
11:13 pm
hussein out, i thought, was the right call. >> raymond: what did he tell you, very briefly, congressman? >> he told me all sorts of things, like when he started the kuwait war, where he started the iran-iraq war. he was a megalomaniac who thought he was the king of the world. he thought he could do anything. and his disappearance from the world stage is good for the world. >> raymond: walid phares -- >> just like soleimani. >> raymond: i've got to move on. gentlemen, back in 2017, president trump said this about saudi arabia, or in saudi arabia, rather, about america's role in the middle east, going forward. watch. >> the nations of the middle east cannot wait for american power to crush this enemy for them. the nations of the middle east will have to decide what kind of future they want for themselves, for their country, and frankly, for their families and for their children. >> raymond: walid phares, doesn't this latest troop deployment violate the presence
11:14 pm
middle east doctrine? >> not at all. we have not aired other parts of the speech where he told them, drive them out, drive the jihadists out, drive the iranian regime out. that does not mean you are doing a war. you can revolt against them, and we will be back in you by all of the possible ways we can. and commenting on this map, all the forces that we have now in the middle east are not even equal to the initial force we had deployed in the iraq. i'm against the idea of having huge army, these forces basically are mobile, and the last argument, they are going to be fired at -- no, we are going to have them be the target. >> raymond: very quickly, walid, i have long been in full disclosure, i was very dubious about president bush going into iraq, because i saw the christian community there utterly ruptured, and leaders at the time warned, this will destroy us. that has come to pass.
11:15 pm
that community is gone, and with it went civil society. you see an upside to this strike against soleimani, that there could be a silver lining here. what is it? >> i see an upside if we continue to do certain strategic actions. the downside if we just do it and do nothing. for example, the christians in the north that you are very concerned about, they have been refugees for the last 4 or 5 years. by weakening this organization, which is stopping them from going back home, we can bring the refugees back home, and civil society, since you mention civil society, have we not seen the last three months what was happening? from baghdad to basrah. we get to the 99% of the process, then we go back home? >> raymond: adam schiff seems to be up to his old tricks, questioning the timing of trump strike. watch. >> i have yet to be fully satisfied that the
11:16 pm
administration has a strategy, that this is not just a one-off act of retaliation are preempted strike. the question is why the administration chose this moment, why this administration made the decision to remove him from the battle when other administrations of both parties decided that would escalate the risks, not reduce them. >> raymond: colonel, what do you make of a congressman, particularly political adversary, questioning the timing of an attack and a president's constitutional duty to protect his troops and the homeland? >> i think president trump has already answered that question. they said they had actionable intelligence, the secretary of defense said we had information they were in the middle -- in the midst of planning an attack that could potentially kill hundreds of people. i think that has pretty much been answered. but along those same lines, one of the things i hope president trump does do, when he sent those troops in there, into both iraq and syria, it was with an actionable military mission that could be accomplished, to
11:17 pm
drive isis out of their caliphate, which he successfully accomplished. but now those troops are still there, and they don't have a military accomplishable mission, in fact, it's very vague, which is always a bad situation, because that's when you get into mission creep. that is my hope the president withdraws and very soon. >> raymond: congressman green, before i let you go, are you concerned that the republican party is now cast as the regime change in the middle east war party once again, and the consequences that could have in 2020? >> no, not at all. the president has responded, honestly, quite measured to what iran is doing. you look at when the drone was shot down, he specifically chose not to go kinetic and to use a computer virus. than they attacked with 11 rocket attacks, our bases, he chose five bases, camps of theirs to attack, and then they attack a u.s. embassy. this is a sovereign u.s. territory. so he went and took out the guy
11:18 pm
who planned the machine. he is a very, very measured and proportional. i don't think that is the image of the republican party. i will say, with folks like senator warren and adam schiff running around, saying this is an assassination -- using the terms the iranians are using, that is certainly emboldening the enemy, when they don't support the troops in the field. this is not an assassination. these soldiers are there under congressional authority. they are out there talking about that stuff. it's ridiculous. >> raymond: colonel, walid, congressman, thank you for being here. we'll see what iran does next and stay in touch. coming up, does nancy pelosi think she is the president? she and other dems are whining about trump not getting permission to kill soleimani. but did he needed? congressman matt gaetz and lee zeldin fire back next. need?
11:19 pm
11:20 pm
need? i am totally blind. and non-24 can throw my days and nights out of sync, keeping me from the things i love to do. talk to your doctor, and call 844-214-2424.
11:21 pm
11:22 pm
11:23 pm
♪ >> raymond: congressional democrats are furious with president trump for not getting their permission to strike terrorist mastermind qassem soleimani. >> the operation against soleimani in iraq was conducted without authorization or advance notification or consultation with congress. i'm a member of the gang of eight, which is typically briefed in advance of operations of this levels, and it was not. >> raymond: congressman matt gaetz and lee zeldin of the house foreign affairs committee, congressman gaetz, does the president need nancy pelosi or chuck schumer's permission to launch an air strike on a dangerous target? >> the president would need
11:24 pm
congressional authorization to start a war with iran, but as the president made very clear, this was an effort to protect our troops and to stop a war, not to start one. with the world is witnessing is a change in doctrine. the obama-bush middle east, regime change doctrine was to invade and hope to persuade people that we were liberators. instead, the trump doctrine is that it is best when we strike the terrorists and then bring our troops home. i'm concerned about the additional troop deployments for the reasons you mentioned in the last segment. i'm grateful that president trump is trying to end the war in syria. he's the first president to end one of these forever was an upstart one, and we should not engage in a war with iran absent congressional approval. >> raymond: congressman, i don't remember democrats whining about the 563 drone strikes that obama ordered. in fact, president obama ordered ten times as many drone strikes as george w. bush, according to the bureau of investigative journalism. the obama administration's of
11:25 pm
the strikes complied with the externally broad authorization for military force act passed by congress after 9/11. congressman zeldin, why are air strikes acceptable under democratic presidents, but verboten now? >> double standards. i mean, we've seen it at play over the course of this year on so many different levels, but that's your answer. and here, this particular strike was meant in order to save lives of american diplomats. to save lives of u.s. troops. nancy pelosi today use the word "disproportionate" to talk about -- >> she did. >> an act that was successful in taking out soleimani. disproportionate? how many hundreds more of u.s. troops have to be killed, nancy pelosi, before it is proportionate? how many more thousands of u.s. troops have to lose limbs before it is proportionate, nancy pelosi? so, i mean, for everything that has happened in the past, this was important, justice, but that is not why this was done.
11:26 pm
this was done to protect american diplomats and american service members going forward. it was an emergency. it was done effectively, it was appropriate, it was illegal, it is proportionate. >> raymond: congressman, here's how 2020 democratic candidates are reacting to the drone strike. listen to this. >> his actions now put us on the path to another war. potentially one that follows a string of dubious actions that trump has taken, that has drastically increased the prospects and the risk of war with iran. and danger to americans. >> taking out a bad guy is not a good idea unless you are ready for what comes next. >> raymond: congressman gaetz, is the president really putting us on a path to war with strike against soleimani, in your mind? >> it's not the president actions that put us on the path to war, it was soleimani's actions leading to war. remember, soleimani was trying to draw the united states into
11:27 pm
war with iran because he believed it would enhance his political standing within iran. if he could demonstrate the survivability. soleimani's problem is he vastly overestimated his own survivability, and when folks wrote his name on the walls outside our embassy as they were attacking american soil, attacking americans, they essentially signed his death warrant. if i were the next leader of the quds force, i would not want those folks writing my name on the wall of any american embassies. >> raymond: republicans are pretty unanimous in their support of the president strike, but here's what senator rand paul said today. listen. >> could now a declaration of war without congress and the american people behind it, what you get is a messy mission. you get escalating, intermittent violence, no plan, and the country hasn't been told to be united. the president said he didn't want perpetual war in the middle east, but he is adding more and more troops. if you don't want perpetual war, you don't keep sending more targets over there.
11:28 pm
>> raymond: congressman when you are more troops? are you worried this could drag the president and your party and the country into a war, even if it's not the intention? >> president trump is someone who desires to end wars, not start them, and we've seen throughout his entire time in office, from one nation to the next, one conflict to the next, his goal was to eliminate the isis caliphate, which was successful. his goal here, to protect american diplomats -- it's important to note that the battalion that was sent over from fort bragg, that was sent over while there was still these attackers outside the u.s. embassy. the marines sent up from kuwait, that was something that was done while you still had these people attacking the u.s. embassy. while joy reid was on msnbc saying this was trump's benghazi, president trump and his administration were ensuring that this was going to be a situation that was going to
11:29 pm
protect american lives. at the end of the day, cost soleimani his life. i would add, matt gaetz is making a ton of really important points just now coming to add to that, it's almost like -- writing the talking points for these democratic president or candidates, for the senate democrats, house democrats, they -- wanting to take president trump down. >> raymond: in a moment, i will get to the media and how they are echoing the lines. but congressman debbie wasserman schultz thinks she has figured out why the president ordered the strike now. >> this action was taken more in president trump's self interest, rather than our national interests. donald trump was just impeached a week and a half ago, and we need to get to the bottom of how and who helped him carry out this illegal cover up, to allow him to withhold aid to help him politically and personally. that's outrageous, and i think that has a lot to do with with
11:30 pm
this attack was about. >> raymond: to help him politically and personally. congressman gaetz, might we be looking at the next article of impeachment against the president from this democratic house? and is this all about distracting people from a nonexistent trial? >> it's pretty rich when democrats say this is trump attempting to distract from domestic political issues when they have used impeachment to distract from the fact that they have no agenda for the american people. on health care, infrastructure, immigration, or really anything. so i think that is really the democrats going back to the same hymn in the hymnal, because they have no other option and no other plan for the american people. >> raymond: congressman, thank you both very much for your insight. happy new year. most people aren't shedding any tears over the killing of soleimani, but the radical left congressman ilhan omar tweeted today "we are outraged the president would assassinate a foreign official, possibly setting off another war, without
11:31 pm
congressional authorization." fellow squad member rashida tlaib added "we cannot stay silent as this lawless president recklessly moves us closer to yet another unnecessary war that puts innocent lives at risk, at home and across the globe." here to respond, the cofounder of the muslim reform movement. asra nomani. why are these congresswoman so angry over the killing of a terrorist? >> what rashida tlaib and ilhan omar forget is 40 years of terror that this man and his regime have put up upon the people of iran and women and civil rights activists throughout the region. what we have done, the united states today, is taken out an assassin, a man who has taken siege upon the dreams of generations of people over the last 40 years, some of these two congresswomen have done is allow their hatred of donald trump to
11:32 pm
blind themselves from the reign of terror that this man, soleimani, has put upon his own people and americans throughout the region. >> raymond: congresswoman ilhan omar tweeted, she vowed to stop trump, tweeting this. "so what if trump wants war, leads to war, and needs a distraction?" there is that line again. "real question: will those with congressional authority step in and stop him? i know i will." does it sound like she is attempting to turn impeachment into a political weapon for foreign power? >> it really feels as if what rashida tlaib and ilhan omar have done is taken as agenda to come to power and dethrone, as they put it, the leader of america. and what they are forgetting in this moment is that what we have faced over these last 40 years as muslims and as a reformer is in our community, it regimes
11:33 pm
like the regime in iran that do not respect democracy leg we practice in the united states. that would not even allow women like them to speak openly and publicly like they do, and so they have taken the wrong side on this battle, as they have in so many other battles, because of this intense hatred that they have for the democratically elected leader of this country. >> raymond: it's really unbelievable. thank you, asra, for your insight. coming up, the media seems to have forgotten just who soleimani was. you won't believe how some news outlets are describing the terrorist mastermind. tammy bruce and matt schlapp are here to expose the media's latest disgrace, next. expose ts latest disgrace, nex

11:37 pm
♪ >> raymond: welcome back to "the ingraham angle." terrorist, murderer, evil mastermind, these would be acceptable ways of describing qassem soleimani. but apparently some didn't get the memo.
11:38 pm
last night, "the washington post" called soleimani "iran's most revered military leader." it brings to mind their eulogizing of al-baghdadi as an "austere religious scholar." joining me now is tammy bruce, fox news contributor, president of the independent women's voice, and matt schlapp, chair of the american conservative union, thank you both are being here. this is how the broadcast media was describing this terrorist. watch. >> the u.s. have stripped iran of an inspirational military leader. >> he is the second most powerful person in iran. >> in iran, he is seen as a revered military leader. >> this guy is regarded in iran as a completely heroic figure, very brave. >> raymond: oh, the mother teresa of iran. tammy, why do some media outlets insist on lionizing these terrorists? >> my favorite is the new yorker, soleimani, a
11:39 pm
flamboyant farmer construction worker and body builder with snowy white hair, a dapper beard, and salt and pepper eyebrows -- which i will hope we have another years. they are doing this, this is a knee-jerk reaction, and if in trade, it's automatic, it's instinct. this is a thing president trump did. they cannot accept that something that would actually, in just the basic facts of reality, cast a good light on the president pick of the instinct, like with al-baghdadi, is to cast these individuals as nice guys, maybe he didn't deserve trump is a maniac, and you don't love him for this because this is wrong. they are so engaged in this delusion that it is affecting their ability, even, to relate basic figures and facts when it comes to reality, and in fact, it becomes a lie, a perpetual lie. >> raymond: because it's repeated and repeated. matt schlapp, how did this guy become the mister rogers of tehran?
11:40 pm
what is happening here? >> i think tammy is right, that he is now a foil to donald trump, but i think it is important to put this in perspective. remember, the bush years, when we went after terrorists, in many cases, we would arrest them and send them to gitmo, but according to the left, that was abusive of human rights, so what did obama do to enhance human rights? he started to assassinate them. i never read very many op-eds about how it was a problem when thousands of terrorists were taken out with drones by president obama. but here, president trump has the audacity, after actionable intelligence that he was going to go after innocents, with a new attack, takes the man out, now we have to read all of this about it being unconstitutional, and abridgment of human rights internationally. >> raymond: i want you to listen to how cnn's john berman described the killing of terrorist soleimani. >> that's nothing compared to the murder of general soleimani,
11:41 pm
which comes during the senate impeachment trials. >> raymond: murder is unlawful, unjustified killing of a person. >> that is correct. >> raymond: he seems to be indicating here that the president doesn't have a right to remove a person who has orchestrated hundreds, if not thousands, of americans -- >> all on the left, including the impeachment, a strong to make president trump a legitimate. their argument is he shouldn't be allowed to operate, choose supreme court justices can act as the president, but this is not going to bode well for them next year. the american people understand what is happening, they can make up their minds about who is dangerous. it is their families that are in the military. these were specialized strikes. no civilians were injured. remember, he was attacked for removing our troops from the border of syria because that was abandoning our allies. there is nothing this man can do
11:42 pm
that will be approved of, and the american people see this, i believe, for what it is. >> raymond: matt schlapp, you heard earlier, concerns even among congressional republicans that we may be entering another endless war or quagmire here. but i want to contrast the hand-wringing and the depiction of trump's order to take out soleimani promote the way the media reacted to usama bin laden's death during the obama administration. listen. >> president obama will be remember it as the leader who nailed bin laden. >> may be the defining moment of president obama's presidency. >> the talk of unity reflects a palpable feeling and a lot of the country. >> it is breathtaking, and the moment of barack obama's presidency so far. >> raymond: i haven't heard any of this breathless commentary. matt, are terrorists only worth removing of a democratic president does it? >> it's a pretty scary thing, which is that there was a time in this country where there was a national security consensus. liberal, conservative, democrat, republican, when it came to our
11:43 pm
national security, we could stand together. i applauded barack obama when he took down usama bin laden. i'm disgusted that these democrats, who want to be commander in chief and replace donald trump, and even stand up for the security of the american people and our allies. remember, we've been at war with iran for 40 years, never recognized -- this is not a state that is recognized by the american government. they are as rogue as al qaeda is rogue, and if it's okay to take out usama bin laden, should be okay to take out soleimani. >> may i add, part of the media complaint is that this will be perpetual war. we were told it was going to take 30 years to get rid of isis. it took 18 freaking months. donald trump does not do perpetual anything. he is a businessman. there are end points. the faster you get something built, the faster you do something, but are for the
11:44 pm
