Sort of makes you wonder about the secret US negotiations with Iran and how both Israel and the Saudis are freaked out by the US.
Which form of Islam was the Big Zero (our President) raised under? I wonder if he is taking religious sides in this? Nah, that couldn't happen, or is it?

Because the “terrorists” are already Iranians .. and now that they’ve taken back Faluja and Ramadi .. it appears the rest of Iraq is up for grabs.
And .. I personally believe Obama’s only goal in Iraq was to make it a total failure .. just for another stab in the back to GW.
