Fmr. Obama Admin Official Blinken: Trump ‘Did the Right Thing’ with Missile Strikes
BERMAN: "I want to bring in CNN global affairs analyst Tony Blinken. He served as deputy national security adviser under President Obama. And Tony, you were supportive of this type of limited military action, air strike, as far back as 2013. You are supportive, I take it, of this action from President Trump overnight, yes?"
BLINKEN: "Yes, I think the president, John, did the right thing. Not only was this chemical attack just heinous in terms of what it did to the victims, but it also violated an international norm that’s been in place since the end of World War I, which bans the use of chemical weapons or biological weapons in armed conflict. So, the president did the right thing in standing up and enforcing that norm, demonstrating there would be consequences for violating it."
