Right to be cautious

Updated 11/12/2019 2:16 PM

Given Nancy Pelosi's condemnation of President Trump as a person who she wants "in prison," and whose every action "leads to Putin," is it any wonder President Trump elected to not share plans of taking out Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi with the Speaker?

Asked by newsmen why he avoided telling Pelosi of targeting the terrorist, President Trump said he could not take the chance that sensitive information could be leaked. It would be Pelosi's style, he said, to share the confidential plans of the commander-in chief with her Trump-hating committee chairmen, Reps. Schiff and Nadler, and they have a record as notorious leakers.


Trump was right in being cautious. You can be sure that with information of President Trump's planned attack on the planet's No. 1 terrorist, machinations would immediately kick in to find negativity on the part of Trump. Schiff, Nadler and Pelosi have said or indicated that they consider Trump a Russian pawn, even traitorous.

President Trump is to be congratulated for finding and taking out this terrorist who had the blood of tens of thousands on his hands. The president's decision to avoid sharing his military maneuvers with Speaker Pelosi was the right thing to do and the safest road to go.
