Well, here’s something new — President Donald Trump, in reversing his own decision to attack multiple targets in Iran in retaliation for the downing of a U.S. drone, exhibited a surprising level of restraint late Thursday, and for the right reasons.

That is, of course, if his tweets can be believed. That’s not a given, but Trump’s comments confirmed earlier news reports out of Washington surrounding the decision to scrap the attack.

Most significantly, Trump tweeted Friday morning that he had approved the attacks but then reversed himself after being told they likely would likely kill about 150 people.
