White House Statement on Iraq: 'We Offer Our Condolences'
Brietbart ^ | 12 Jun 2014 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 06/12/2014 8:49:36 AM PDT by Cheerio

A statement from the White House Press Secretary was released late Wednesday night in reaction to the flood of attacks in Iraq by insurgents - after they took the city of Mosul.

"The United States strongly condemns the recent attacks in Iraq by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL),” the statement read. “We offer our condolences to the families of those killed and underscore our commitment to assist the Iraqi people as they confront the threat that ISIL poses to Iraq and the region.”

We could have used harsh language and strong condemnations against the Nazi’s!

Why didn’t we think of that!

No wonder they say Obama is the smartest man in the world!

Either A. this man has had a dramatic break with reality, or B. The two comments, referring to specific contexts were very poorly timed. C. Both A and B. This looks the definition of a politician talking out both sides of his mouth.

I believe one could argue that 0bama is directly responsible for these attacks and - especially where any Americans may be murdered - endorses them wholeheartedly.

Now now...Barry will get right on it when he gets the sleep boogers wiped out of his eyes.

He just got up at the crack of noon because he had a long day telling lies to HS kids yesterday.

Let him have his corn flakes first, then, he'll get right on it

Right after a round a of golf and a couple hours of destroying some other part of the US

So this is just another post-action reaction by the ‘Progressives’, just like the Vietnam Conflict, (almost said ‘war’).
They say we shouldn’t have even been there in the first place and the reason it is so bad now is ‘because’ of our own evil actions. Does anyone believe we will ever engage an enemy no matter what?
