Trump: We committed an act of war to stop a war.
Pompeo: Americans are safer now, but evacuate Iraq immediately, you're not safe.
Pompeo: We're de-escalating.
Esper: We're sending more troops.

Look, if the administration thinks that a big ass escalation was necessary to prevent an imminent attack, it should clearly make that case to Congress and the American people.
