White House on Iran Striking Despite U.S. Saying Not To: 'Another Way of Looking at This Is, They Didn't' Succeed

During an interview with CBS on Monday, White House National Security Communications Adviser John Kirby responded to a question on Iran attacking Israel despite American warnings to not do so and what that says about American influence in the region by stating that "I think another way of looking at this is, they didn't. They meant to cause casualties, they meant to cause extensive damage inside Israel, and they didn't."
