Mike Pompeo gives first reaction to US airstrike in Syria

The U.S. military carried out an airstrike against an Iranian-backed militia stronghold in Syria Thursday, a senior official told Fox News.

Multiple facilities were struck by American F15 fighter jets that targeted Iraqi border-based Shia militia groups, Kait’ib Hezbollah and Kait’ib Sayyid al Shuhada.

Both forces are suspected of having received funding and military support from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard.

Mike Pompeo reacts. His comments about Syria begin at about 2:44:

Meanwhile, VP Kamala complains (H/T WeeWeed), and yes, it does make you wonder exactly who did order the air strike.

    I bet China Joe didn’t even know. So can it be true that the military is in control?

      It sure makes you wonder, doesn’t it. I was shocked to hear they did it, but it appears to be the right thing so I doubt Joebama thought of it or anybody in his administration. Heels-up said she wasn’t aware. LOL

      If Joe is not in control, and how could he be, and someone strong behind him running the whole show, we will soon see fractured, irrational actions as different powers move their areas in contrary positions and actions. We will see a government fighting against itself.

      Okay, more so than usual.

      I am still wondering who ordered the raid that killed 0sama.
      My guess is Panetta, he was in the Clinton administration and remembered that Clinton passed on 3 occasions to kill 0sama and what followed.

    That Syria strike sure didn’t take long.
    It was the obvious choice, though. Syria was one of the last unfinished businesses Obama needed to complete before Pres Trump took over.

    Guess Ol’ Kommie Harris needed to be put back in her place, huh? Kommie is so stupid she actually told people she wasn’t informed.
    Ignoring her for the first big military strike ought to set her down a peg or two.

    You don’t spose Ol’ Kommie actually thought she would really be running things, do ya?
    JoeBama will set ‘er straight.
    Wonder if they’re gonna tell Joe?
