    It is not "thinking" ; you make it sound like it was a fleeting thought he momentarily had. He wanted Assad dead, but Mattis saved the day.

    Obama never ran roughshod over government and society like Trump . Obama resisted as best he could. The GOP establishment kept bitching at Obama to take Ghaddafi out, and you righties then blame Obama for doing it.

    You don't have any "anonymous sources close to the story" to back you up? Please.

    Obama wanted to assasinate Gadaffi.

    It doesn't matter who the source was if Trump is admitting it. The conclusion we can draw is that he lied when he denied it. Or maybe he lying now for some reason related to his ego. It's an established fact that Trump is a liar 20k+ lies into his Presidency.

    He did do something. He's corroborating Woodward's '18 book after previously stating it was a lie.

    I think that was sound advice from Mattis.

    Ok, so Trump lied about considering doing something that he didn’t actually do two years ago. Yuge?

    Don't be a poor excuse for a MAGAhatter. It's "SAD!". Without the caps and exclamation point it loses all its oomph... <TheDonald>

    Probably for the best they didnt. Getting rid of these middle eastern despots seems to cause much more harm than good.

    No, he lied about a description of him in a book, but since he's too stupid to remember now he's admitting it. LIAR! SAD! <{1-11}>

    But Mattis said it didn't happen. So why would you credit him for something he said he didn't do?

    Of course he is. That doesn't have anything to do with what I'm talking about.

    I'm saying I find it shocking that it's ok to leak info about conversations like that.

    You didn't read the O.P. so why did you even respond?

    TL : DR
    - In 2018 Bob Woodward published a book called "Fear"
    - In it he said that Trump wanted to Assasinate Assad.
    - Trump rubbished Woodward for stating this, claiming it was not true.
    - Fast forward to now : Trump goes on Fox and Friends and says he wanted to assasinate Assad but Mattis prevented him.

    Woodward's claim in the 2018 book has been vindicated by Trump himself.
