President Trump launched 59 tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airfield in response to a chemical attack ordered by Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad against civilians. Surprisingly, Trump's action received a positive response from leading Democrats including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). The usually hostile media also supported Trump's action. The missile strike exposed a number of lies from the Obama administration regarding Syria and its chemical weapons. After Syria crossed Obama's red line by using chemical weapons against civilians in 2013, President Obama struck a deal with Russia to make sure chemical weapons were removed from Syria. A number of Obama administration officials touted the "success" of getting Syria to get rid of their chemical weapons. Former Secretary of State John Kerry and former National Security Adviser Susan Rice bragged about how the U.S. got Syria to eliminate their chemical weapons without force. The recent chemical attack in Syria showed the Obama plan failed and exposed the assurances from the former president's team as lies.
