So y'all were mad when you assumed trump ordered the bombing, and now you are mad that he didn't give the order. You idiots need to relax. Try some yoga.

Aren't you glad Hillary wasn't in charge?!?!?!

We all know trump's going to lie about something at least once a day, usually more than once. He's mixed up to say the least.


Posted 10:21 am, 04/21/2017

That is exactly correct Osmosis, Trump gave them the authority to make calls as they see fit. So indirectly Trump made the call.

He's allowing the generals to make the decisions. He's also not going to worry about the backlash from the Muslim community like Old BOBO did. I've never seen a picture of Donald wearing a rag on his head.

Senior Airforce Officials say the call to drop the MOAB was a “tactical decision by the commander in Afghanistan,” and had no strategic input from anyone in the Trump administration.

He ordered the go ahead, he had too, they can't drop a bomb without the president knowing about it, He told our military to do what they needed to do.

I think when it comes to dropping the "mother of all bombs" micromanaging is not a bad thing.

What a ridiculous defense of Trump and his lies.

SO pokertard, are you saying it was a good idea for bho'bummer to micromanage his generals?

he didn't even know it was going to happen...what a liar.American officials said on Thursday that General Nicholson did not request permission from Mr. Trump, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis or Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, before dropping the giant bomb, a GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast, or MOAB.
General Nicholson already had the necessary authority to bomb the tunnel complex and had it during the Obama administration as well, American officials said.

But current and former Defense Department officials said that it was likely that if President Barack Obama were still in office, General Nicholson would have checked with his bosses before calling in what is the country’s most powerful non-nuclear bomb because the Obama White House had made clear to the Pentagon that the president wanted to be consulted in major strike decisions.
