Obama: ‘I didn’t want to leave troops in Iraq but it’s their fault I didn’t


Liar, liar pants on fire. A few clips just for the memory.

This should hold us for the weekend! Make it a good one.

Obama, Romney Clash Over Status of Forces Agreement in Iraq


Now today.

Obama: It Wasn’t My Decision to Pull Troops Out of Iraq . The first couple of seconds are all it takes,

Good ole Joe

“I am very optimistic about — about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government,” said Biden.

“I spent — I’ve been there 17 times now. I go about every two months — three months. I know every one of the major players in all of the segments of that society. It’s impressed me. I’ve been impressed how they have been deciding to use the political process rather than guns to settle their differences.”

    regardless of mr. obama’s ‘soup du jour’ opinions, it should be clear that he and ms. jarrett along with
    ali khamenei and shia majority in the iraqi parliament wanted our troops gone in 60 seconds or less.
    theirs was the long game we now see playing out courtesy of the isis hooligans.

    at the time, mr. maliki dearly needed a continued American presence to facilitate his control and offered
    this administration his ‘personal’ guarantee of immunity for our troops, but he couldn’t get his law-making
    branch to play along; so our president was able to shift the blame to the iraqi ‘government’ for refusing
    to extend the ‘status of force agreement’.
    fast-forward to now and witness the cic more than willing to put our kids at risk by authorizing F-14’s to
    fly ‘surveillance’ missions over that God-forsaken land and dropping 300 boots on the ground to act in
    an ‘advisory’ capacity; sans the consent of his own law-making branch and justified by the request of the
    same iraqi p.m. who was ignored when an election needed to be won.

    the ‘state of play’ now existent in the middle-east is that of an iranian push for a shia caliphate, aided in no
    small part by our recent ‘faits accomplis’ in iraq, egypt and libya; being countered by the sunni gulf states,
    vis~a~vis the well funded and armed isis, to form a new sunni caliphate. it’s really that simple.

    so if i were sitting at the table playing this game of ‘risk’. if my plastic markers encompassed the entire
    north-western hemisphere, protected by the greatest military prowess known to man; i’d let them duke it out
    and wait (in strength) to see where my real national security interests lay.

    America used to have presidents like that…b

    America had the chance to replace Mr. Obama, and they failed to do so. They have now imposed their failure, and his, upon all of America!

    Things were looking up for a little while there in 2010, but things have since changed. But just the same, why do you cons find it necessary to show how people who usually disagree with you are sometimes wrong yet when their wrong, that’s when they are in agreement with you? Do you see the irony there?

      The point of the exercise with this post is that apparently Obama cannot recall his position from one year to the next. Otherwise known as any failure is someone else’s fault.

        Obama was always against the war, and he rightly realized we had to get out. We couldn’t just stay there forever, bunkerville. American lives are worth more than that.

        I think many if not most of the so called cons agree with you. I say let them kill each other as far as I am concerned. I think you will find many who agree.

        Obama’s position has always been known and consistent. The cons, on other hand, have completed a full 180 on the whole thing – that they started.

    I am sorry but I just had to laugh at that second clip, it is typical for him to make that clam; all the decisions he feels turn out right be takes full credit for but when they turn out bad he claims he had no role in it.
