CNN International and PBS host Christiane Amanpour opened Tuesday’s joint program (airing live in the afternoon on the former then late-night on PBS) with two interviews in which she couldn’t have been more stark, going softer on an Iranian vice president than U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. In other words, it was par for the course with Amanpour.

Amanpour led with Esper and first stated that CNN sources are arguing that the justification to strike Soleimani based on a threat to American forces “may be razor thin and the chatter was nothing out of the ordinary.”
