eRobin posted a clip of Tim Ryan, D-OH, speaking in the House of Representatives about the escalation. He points out that the administration responsible for the lack of body armor, etc. is not likely to do it right this time either.
It was the last line that got me, where he rephrases the words of Donald Rumsfeld:
"You go to war with the president you have, you don't go to war with the president you wish you had."
