    I don't think President trump travels over there himself and holds a roll call and asks for everyone's condition.

    i expect he trusts his advisors to tell him the truth.

    If he does not believe the intel he is given people complain. If he does believe it - people still complain.

    It is tough at the top!

    These were concussion type injuries that weren't known immediately as first reports stated no injuries.

    All Trump does is lies... He can't stop. He doesn't even fact check. Because he doesn't care.

    TBH, I don't think he was told at the time and that was probably a good thing because things were so tense that just a few wronger words could have kicked off yet another conflict in the Middle East.  Lucky for us Iran's f-up with the passenger plane sparking internal protests took the heat out of the situation.

    He obviously wanted to minimize the damage caused by his reckless action in killing Qasem Soleimani.  Trump had been criticized after the attack for doing something so provocative and people predicted that Iran would respond violently.  While it was good that no one was killed, Trump would have taken a hit to his reputation if he had admitted that a bunch of people were injured, perhaps seriously.  This would have been implicit confirmation that his critics were right and the narrative would have been about how he had provoked this attack which injured Americans.  Instead, by falsely claiming that no one was hurt, he could take a victory lap and declare that his critics had been wrong.

    He wanted to testify under oath for Robt. Mueller.  So his lawyers held some practice question/answer sessions.  What they found was that he can't stick to the truth even when he's TRYING!  They told him if he ever testified under oath he'd go to prison for sure.

    The concussions only became apparent later, shithead. I know two year olds who can follow the news better than you.

    He lies about everything. This is one of those servicemen with what Trump calls a headache. This is 100% Donald Trump's fault.

    Because he would have to counterstrike, taking us to war, if he told the truth, then a sh!t storm would ensue because he brought us to war with an act in which he didn't confer with congress,
