Howard Dean appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Thursday, suggesting that it’s best to trust President Obama on U.S. military action in Syria because he knows more about the crisis than most, first reported.

Speaking with Joe Scarborough, Mr. Dean argued that in Syria, “when kids are getting killed, it’s always our business.”

“I was very happy to criticize the President when he did health care reform,” the Democrat continued. I know a lot about it. I’ve had a lot more experience about it than probably most the people that wrote the bill.

Mr. Dean argued in 2003 against the war in Iraq, saying “[e]ven the largest, most sophisticated military in the history of the world cannot be expected to go to war against every evil dictator who may possess chemical weapons.”
