As we told you last night, Pete Buttigieg was among some Democrat presidential candidates who criticized President Trump for ordering the airstrike that killed Iranian leader Soleimani:
"It depends on the circumstance and the information gathered to determine whether an action like that is justified…this isn't an episode of 24"-@PeteButtigieg on whether as president he would've ordered the Soleimani strike #DemDebate

Buttigieg just said he would not take out a terrorist responsible for killing 603 Americans, who had just killed a U.S. contractor, and who was actively planning more attacks
They've totally lost it!https://t.co/SLZ8mzDtvz

Yikes. He probably should have just said “pass” to that question.
That sure is some spin… https://t.co/CerRNbLd0y

Some new spin on the previous spin might now be necessary.
That was an even worse explanation.

By him being alive, hundreds of US servicemen and Muslims are dead. This is bullcrap. https://t.co/40ajSzBwuB

I'm old enough to remember when Bill Clinton decided to "look for alternatives" instead of taking out bin Laden when he had the chance. How'd that work out? https://t.co/teRkQJgYwM
