You’re not going to believe this interview and SLL can’t recommend it highly enough. In eight minutes and thirty-two seconds, thirty-four-year-old Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (Dem., Hawaii) disposes of fourteen years of bullshit. Ms. Gabbard says that the US, in deposing Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, created unstable situations that have redounded to the benefit of our enemies, al Qaeda and affiliated Islamic extremist groups. She calls the US’s current effort to depose Syria’s Bashar Assad illegal, and argues the US is aiding al Qaeda and ISIS. If Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah want to fight ISIS, she says the US should welcome their efforts against America’s “true” enemies. She rejects proposals for a US-enforced no-fly zone, one of whose proponents is Hillary Clinton, her party’s presumptive candidate for president.Wolf Blitzer asks tough, serious questions, some of them reflective of current Washington propaganda; Gabbard gives thoughtful, articulate answers. Gabbard served two tours of duty with the Hawaii Army National Guard in Iraq, and it is clear her experiences there inform her criticisms.
