After initially saying the U.S. suffered no casualties from Iranian missile attacks in January, the U.S. now says dozens of soldiers suffered traumatic brain injuries from those attacks. Read more: wapo.st/39nviZF. Subscribe to The Washington Post on RUvid: wapo.st/2QOdcqK

🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸No body was injured in no attack. It was self inflicted brain injury and they just stop breathing at some point. We dont die and we dont lie! We have great relationship with Iran and we love them! They are our brothers in Mideast! We are americans, sons of God! God bless America and let's make it great again! Trump 2020!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

There were no Casualties, meaning none of our soldiers were killed in the attack. The title of the video is misleading. Cheap WaPo clickbait. Sad.

DEAR WORLD , THIS IS HAIR SPLITTING. SAD THOUGH THE INJURED MIGHT BE, THE SMART OF THEM DON'T SAY YOU GO TO WAR ON THEIR ACCOUNT OF CONCUSSION INJURIES. UNDER TRUMP OR BERNIE OR MAYOR PETE OR ANY OTHER PRES - YOU DON'T SQUISH IRAN IN A DAY OR TWO AND THEN DEAL WITH ALL THE RAMIFICATIONS THIS ENGENDERS 'UNLESS FOR BIG AND VERY VERY GOOD REASONS', .MANY LESSER PRESIDENTS WOULD HAVE BEEN IN THAT QUAGMIRE NOW (OR HOPEFULLY NOT SO BAD), BUT TRUMP IS NOT IN A RUSH TO FIND OUT SO THAT'S A GOOD THING.

Trump said what he was reported to him at the time of the attack. Later, headaches developed as it is with most of psychological illnesses. Claims; some could be serious, and some could be temporary--who knows. Left, and Democrats are desperate to make something out of nothing. Casualties, were Obama's war in Syria, where 500,000 were killed and 5 million refugees fled their homeland, and unknown number are still homeless.

By military standards severely injured soldiers are considered casualties, however the civilian word often means death. The title is dumb and click bait, but whatever dude.

Trump is an arse from ears to ankles, not a great statesman. I do not TRUST that he would follow or even consider the advice of competent military, diplomatic or intelligence personal. An American Nero, he could be sitting in front of of his Tyrant Tower in the center of Barrack Obama Avenue wearing nothing but a giant necktie and a diaper, chewing live pigeons while growling at passersby and he wouldn't look any crazier than he is acting now.

Yet, Doughnut Trump said there were no casualties! Only suffering from head aches !!!! Nothing like a war to keep the economy going. A few American lives lost is a small price to pay for the profits that can be made.
Yong Yew Kuan Andy
Err. I thought casualties meant seriously harmed as well. Thought they were moving out? Most probably the war mongers and military arms manufacturer still wants to create unease there so they can sell more arms and weapons there. Trump was quite brave to had taken that step. Maybe those advising him gave Trump the impression that the only reason soldiers were still there was because of Solameni and Trump just removed the only excuse expecting to leave after that. Should just bring the soldiers back.

Jerome Bullard Month ago
John Wayne casualties, when speaking of war, most often means people killed. That’s how it’s click bait. They have headaches? Yeah. That’ll happen when bombs are going off around you all day. Shell shock.
Carl Christensen
Well he has lied many times before but technically, this is not a lie. It's a matter of semantics and speed of information. He said no casualties and that can be understood as no deaths / significant loss of function or as no injuries at all. He meant the former, as was probably most citizen's primary concern. Second the injuries of concussions don't always show immediately. Also, though I don't support him or vote for him, his first statement of no casualties was also a show of strength and resolve to Iran, et al, not a meet and greet with the press. And yes this is a spin story / click bait. That does not vindicate Trump nor does it fully condemn the press. The president and the press are at war with each other. Both are big machines of attention. The more they fight, the more we watch/listen/worry/react. That plays well for both of them--one to make money and one to gain power. As the saying goes, "War is good for business."

Trump has to own that his actions resulted in American deaths and casualties. He's not going to do that because if he doe he has to take reciprocal action and they know that will lead to an exclamation. So, he waits for a while knowing his base have short memories, to quietly acknowledge it. Mr. Espy is a stone-cold liar. Trump can't even put his makeup on properly!

POLL: Most Americans would believe the FBI over Trumputin - - - including Trumputin's lawyers. - - - - Washington Post - Commissar Trumputin’s lawyers are urging him to avoid an interview with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III because he is a *PATHOLOGICAL LIAR who cannot be trusted to refrain from telling falsehoods to investigators.* Best said by one of Trumputin's lawyers - John Dowd after he finished his practice interview with the president in January warned Trumputin he would be “fitted for an orange jumpsuit” if he were ever to actually sit down with Mueller’s team for a real interview. counsel Robert S. Mueller III. On the afternoon of Jan. 27, 2018, Woodward writes, Trumputin and his attorney, John M. Dowd, met in the White House residence. Seated with the president “at a table with a view of the Washington and Jefferson Memorials,” Dowd proposed a practice run-through of the interview that Mueller had requested-and continues to request to this day. “I would just like to give you sort of a feel of what testimony could be like,” Dowd said to Trump, a man who has submitted himself over his long and litigious life to dozens of depositions. One of the most memorable, and damning for Trump, is the one he gave in 2007 during his libel suit against biographer Timothy O’Brien. AsO’Brien wrote in Bloomberg in January, “Trumputin ultimately had to admit 30 times that he had lied over the years about all sorts of stuff: how much of a big Manhattan real estate project he owned; the price of one of his golf club memberships; the size of the Trumputin Organization; his wealth; his speaking fees; how many condos he had sold; his debts, and whether he borrowed money from his family to avoid going personally bankrupt. He also lied during the deposition about his business dealings with career criminals.” The mock interview with Dowd showed that Trumputin had not done much since then to improve his testimony game. For one thing, Trumputin couldn’t remember anything. ********** “I’m not sure,” Trumputin said to one question about Michael Flynn. I don’t know,” he said to another. ********** “I don’t know. I can’t remember,” he said to another question. To another query, “Trumputin said he couldn’t remember.”**********“You know, I don’t know,” he said to still another as if his memory banks had been degaussed. But that wasn’t the worst of it. Actually, Trumputin could remember some things, and on those select things, he claimed perfect recall. “Why did you tell Director Comey that-you kind of asked him to take it easy on Flynn,” Dowd said to Trumputin. “I didn’t say that,” Trumputin protested. “John, I absolutely didn’t say that.”
