Johnson: America No Better Than Syria

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson suggested in an interview with The New York Times that the Syrian government’s targeting of civilians in its five-year civil war was similar to the accidental bombing of civilians by U.S.-supported forces. He was pressed as to whether he thought these things were similar and seemed to suggest he did. “Well no, of course not—we’re so much better than all that,” Johnson said sarcastically. “We’re so much better when in Afghanistan, we bomb the hospital and 60 people are killed in the hospital.” He went on to not name North Korea’s leader when asked.
