'What Is the Strategy?': Warren Calls for Explanation from Trump of MOAB Strike
Democrats are calling for further explanation from President Donald Trump for dropping a MOAB - the largest non-nuclear bomb in the U.S. arsenal - on ISIS targets in Afghanistan.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) talked to reporters Thursday after hearing from constituents at a town hall in Salem, Mass.
She called on President Trump to consult Congress before taking military action overseas.
"He's gotta come in and explain himself," she said, asking what the overall plan is in Afghanistan and in Syria.
Warren questioned what the impact was on civilians in the area, though U.S. officials say 36 ISIS fighters were killed without any civilian casualties.
Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA), a Marine veteran who served four tours in Iraq, echoed Warren's remarks on the use of the so-called "mother of all bombs."
"One bomb does not make any difference at all. Frankly, dropping bombs is easy," said Moulton, arguing it will do little to change the situation on the ground in Afghanistan.
Warren said she wants to hear from generals on why this particular weapon was used "at this moment."
Geraldo Rivera discussed the comments this morning, emphasizing that the issue of civilian casualties is "very, very important."
Rivera said the headline of the attack should be about the mission avoiding civilian harm.
