American military actions around the world require careful scrutiny, even if it's painful: for a survivor of military action like Ilhan to be sensitive to this is expected and admirable. Whether this signals a "lurch" is unclear though GOP will try to take advantage.
I admire 1/
much of what P. Wehner has to say these days, but a tweet like this reminds one -- with regret -- how he (reportedly) once dealt with American military issues. Given a choice, I prefer Ilhan:

programs…, [Father Richard] Neuhaus [as editor of the pro-war _First Things_] chose to base his analysis not on the report itself but on a heavily redacted and deceptively interpreted version … provided … by Karl Rove’s White House deputy, 2/
Peter Wehner.

Damon Linker, The Theocons. Secular America Under Siege (New York: Doubleday, 2006), 137.

I don't think Ilhan is being "deceptive." And P. Wehner may not have been either: I wasn't in the room. In fact, I hope not. But there's the report. 3/
