Gabbard is not heroic. She is simply asking questions that are part of her job. The fact that she believes Trump violated the Constitution with last years missile strike against Syria and yet neither she nor any member of congress has brought impeachment proceedings is not heroic.
Just the next day after this hearing Mattis and Trump launched another wave of bombings against Syria. How much respect for any human life do you think they have when they are willing to bomb another country so easily? If Mattis' testimony is to be believed, the Trump administration went from "no decision" to killing people overnight and in just a coupl week's time since this latest alleged chemical attack. (Because killing people with bombs and bullets is somehow OK but klling them with poisom gas is not?)I know how safe I'd feel trying to critique, much less jail, a group weilding that kind of violence so whimsically.But I'm sure if you were in her position, dealing with the kind of people she has to engage with and coming to grips with the depth of corruption in DC, you would likewise be able to just do your "job".
