Tulsi Gabbard

This article was written by Alex Pfeiffer

Top Democrats are not pleased that Hawaii Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard pushed the U.S. to collect and release evidence from the scene of the chemical attack in Syria.

Gabbard visited Syria and met with President Bashar al-Assad in January and has been consistently cautious about American involvement in the Middle Eastern county. The Hawaii congresswoman said in a statement that the airstrikes on Syria were “short-sighted and will lead to more dead civilians, more refugees, the strengthening of al-Qaida and other terrorists, and a possible nuclear war between the United States and Russia.”

She also said she has not seen enough evidence that Assad was behind the chemical attack that led to the death of dozens of civilians. Gabbard said an investigation was necessary before responding, and that “if President Assad is found to be responsible after an independent investigation for these horrific chemical weapons attacks, I’ll be the first one to call for his prosecution and execution by the International Criminal Court.”

Neera Tanden, head of the Center for American Progress, and former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean both responded to these comments with outrage.

“This is a disgrace. Gabbard should not be in Congress,” Dean tweeted Saturday.

Tanden said, “People of Hawaii’s 2nd district – was it not enough for you that your rep met with a murderous dictator? Will this move you?”

Trump’s strike on Syria received broad bipartisan support, with both House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer backing the decision.

    Sorry but cooler heads would agree with this congresswoman and 9 times out of ten, reacting on first impressions leads to many embarrassing and costly apologies after the fact and following the thorough investigation weighing in with the actual evidence. We would like to think we had the facts in order to jump into this fray, but bias is the bane of any good investigation and we do have proof that there was lot’s room for bias in the report given to Trump to make his assessment from.
