Jake Sullivan Says Day of Hostage Rescue Was 'Another Horrible, Awful, Tragic Day'

Back in December, the Biden administration sent National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan to Israel to ask Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to "transition to the next lower intensity phase [of the war] in a matter of weeks, not months." In other words, tone it down a bit and wrap things up quickly, as this is hurting the president's polling.

Israel ignored the Biden administration's warning not to enter Rafah and ended up rescuing four hostages who'd been held captive for more than eight months. Sullivan was on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday and told Jake Tapper that our hearts break for the "innocent" people who were killed, like the innocent civilians who were holding the hostages in their homes.

The U.S. Office of Palestinian Affairs posted a quote from Sullivan:

Heartbreaking. Tragic. Our hearts break.

Ours didn't. We were celebrating the hostage rescue operation.

… and there is no distinction between militants and complicit civilians under international humanitarian law?

Why don't you mention that you're thrilled the hostages, whose lives were in imminent danger every minute of every day since they were illegally kidnapped from Israel on October 7, are free and safe and with their families?

What is wrong with you?

Those innocent people were firing at the rescue team.

It would be awful and tragic if they were rescued and returned home.

This editor keeps replaying the video of Palestinian men and boys in the streets on October 7 cheering as unconscious hostages were brought in in the beds of pickup trucks.

The last number of Palestinians this editor heard were killed was 247. Which, though obviously inflated, according to Rep. Chip Roy, was a good ratio:

If this is genocide, then the Israelis are doing it wrong, because bodycam footage shows IDF soldiers not shooting a whole lot of Palestinians.
