The question of whether the U.S. should intervene after a lethal gas attack in Syria over the weekend is up for discussion, and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Monday that the United States is not currently conducting airstrikes in Syria (that would likely be Israel).

We know that what has been tried against Syria in the past hasn’t worked — certainly not President Obama’s red line, and not even the low-level, covert military stuff that Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut tweeted about Monday.
The U.S. has been engaged in low level covert and overt military action against Assad for half a decade. None of it has worked. In fact, most of it has made the situation worse. Just doing more of the same is the definition of insanity.

You likely just divulged classified information. The people of Connecticut are morons for electing you. https://t.co/mfoOx53Xmd

You ratting out covert operations? Pretty sure that's illegal. https://t.co/QrhlZRw1vY

What level of classification did you just expose?

Does covert mean blab it, all over twitter?

What else would you like to let Assad know.? You idiot.

Thanks for confessing you were always very much intervening in Syria, moron. https://t.co/c7dHC22bIx

So what’s the plan now?
Did you just reveal classified information?
And you just admitted that Obama's Syria policy was a complete failure.
Going for a trifecta?

Then pick up the phone and tell the President your idea.

So you admit the Obama administration FAILED not only in Syria, but in eliminating ISIS, neutralizing North Korea, did NOTHING about Russia's meddling in our election, and emboldened Iran and others to do whatever they want. Still ZERO suggestions from YOU!

I'm sure if we look back we'll see your equally cynical criticism of 44's failed Syrian foreign policy decisions?

FAIL: Video of these Dems spiking the ball about Syria (to MSM applause) did NOT age well https://t.co/mU6Pjsv4W4
