As Twitchy reported earlier, Congress was given a classified briefing on the targeting of Iranian terror leader Qasem Soleimani, and most Democrats (and some Republicans) argued that they saw no evidence that Soleimani presented an imminent threat to any American lives. Of course, he’d just coordinated an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, which liberals were madly hoping would be “Trump’s Benghazi.”
It wasn’t though. President Trump sent in the Marines and took care of that situation right away. A couple of days later, he found the man responsible for that and the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers and took the shot when he had it.
But now Congress is worried that the killing of Soleimani was “reckless” because we don’t know if he was planning another attack. As we said in an earlier post, it’s like that CNN chyron that was put up as coalition bases were being attacked with missiles from Iran:

We don’t recall Democrats complaining about the killing of Osama Bin Laden. He probably wasn’t planning another 9/11, so why bother?
Here’s Rep. Pramila Jayapal calling Trump’s strike a reckless assassination.

He already did attack us, multiple times. Is she high?

Cheering for a long term proven terrorist. That's the Democrats.

I wonder what she said when Obama took out Bin Laden. I was supportive of that action (as we all should have been) and this action was no different, other than the fact that Dems are lunatics.

They love to twist things to their bs advantage. Soleimani was a known terrorist and the proof of all his violent attacks are known from his own people.
These people are SICK! Enemy of the American ppl. ?

Soliemani killed over 600 Americans. We didn’t need anything more to take this terrorist out.

Did she hear about the attack on our embassy?
— Dirk (@RealDirkDeal) January 8, 2020
"imminent attack?" Soleimani ALREADY attacked. He coordinated the militia attack on the US embassy in Iraq. They literally graffitied on the walls of the embassy "Soleimani is my commander." ??♂️

Has she registered as an Iranian agent ?

I'm sure Soleimani was at the airport to discuss golf and grandchildren. Yep.

Always good when members of Congress like @RepJayapal throw their support behind terrorists.

she acts like President Trump woke up one day and decided to press a button. Our President was presented with all of the intelligence collected, consulted with his cabinet and made the final decision to act. Just like Obama did. Only problem now is the Presidents last name.

I’m sorry, this is the most disgusting thing I’ve witnessed in a long time. America better wake up and get to the ballot box to vote these crazies out in November. Our country and republic depends on it.

They're really going all in on this in an election year? Defending the world's biggest terrorist and lamenting that he's not still alive?

lol there was nothing reckless about it. It was an incredible precision strike!
— benjamin franklin (@benjfirst46) January 8, 2020
It wasn't reckless…it was a direct hit to a terrorist…the world is a better place because another terrorist is dead…
He was a known terrorist…good enough.
— Gin Havoc (@havoc2gh) January 8, 2020
Actually, it wasn't reckless. It was carefully planned and executed by the best military in the world. It was so well done that the deceased fit in a small box which only took up one plane seat. So add efficiency and cost effective to the list.
