McCain Calls for Obama's National Security Team to Resign Over Iraq
National Journal ^ | June 12, 2014 | Kevin Baron

Posted on 06/12/2014 12:41:58 PM PDT by don-o

Roaring onto the Senate floor as swaths of Iraq fall to insurgent control, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said the entire Obama administration national security team, including Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey, should resign for failing to keep Iraq secure.

"Could all this have been avoided? …The answer is absolutely yes," McCain said. "If I sound angry it's because I am angry."

Lemme think here. Who was it said, "There is nothing to fear from an Obama Presidency."?

It was right on the tip of my tongue....

Ah, McCain, quite the Conservative, I see.

Uh-huh. Sure.

He’s not a liberal, nuh-uh.

Hey John, you just don’t get it — his national security team is succeeding in their endeavors and the proof is what you see happening before your eyes.

The silver lining in all this is it is happening on Obama’s watch. Can you imagine the outcry from the media if this happened to a newly elected Republican President such as Ted Cruz.

McCain is right. The trouble is, there will be no resignations.

It also has been reported that our intelligence services saw this Sunni attack coming many moths ago. It is the whole 0bama crew which is responsible, and we are pretty much stuck with them for three more years.

What will the world look like then?

Obama is a traitor. Impeach, remove, prosecute accordingly.

McCain is also a disgrace, but that’s for a different day.

All McCain has done with his surges is to increase the number of AQ in Iraq. Let them kill each other and that will decrease any problem for us.

Has any of Obama's cabinet been approved by Congress as per the Constitution? Isn't his security team also picked without any oversight? Didn't he skirt the entire process by appointing czars which was idiocy allowed from the start?

I have to think it is happening NOW partly BECAUSE it is 0bama’s watch. The whole world knows that he will do nothing but make speeches and draw lines. He might threaten to have a beer summit or something, if he starts to get any pressure from the MSM.

I suggest that we make McCain Ambassador to Iraq, and send him over to Baghdad as soon as possible, to take charge of our embassy there.

John McCain November 2008 concession speech:

“We have nothing to fear from an Obama presidency.”

So now he blames the help instead of the man in charge.

McCain did so well with Libya we should listen to him.

Just don't accept any ambassadorships he may offer.

“We have nothing to fear from an Obama presidency.”

Actually, McLame said that while he was "running." Palin was ready to go after Obama but was prevented from doing so.

I didn’t want to nation build in Iraq in the first place.

But we did. We spent a huge amount of blood and a lot of treasure in getting that place almost tame, and a simple status of forces agreement with Iraq would have helped preserve some semblance of control for at least another decade. On the downside, it would have required a division equivalent for that same decade to be rotated in and out.

Permanent solutions:

1. Divide it into competing nations.
2. Let it become what it becomes, and smack it if it bothers us
3. Re-invade and get it back to where we had it under control

I have never had any doubt that Obama torpedoed those SOFA talks with Maliki(sp).

He could have bought Maliki with money if he couldn’t come up with ideas. Maliki was that easy.

Notice no one ever directs the attack where it is due, at the black President who shields himself from everyone by telling us how black and intelligent he must be.
This is getting retarded, lets just call a bad President what he is.

Civil wars in the Arab world are rarely about ideas. They’re about which tribe gets power. It’s just another in a never-ending civil war. But no Abe Lincoln in this -it’s The South vs The South.

As far as ‘democracy’ in Iraq, we can’t want it for them more than they do.

McCain had to quickly get on the record as blaming Obama, yet he is just a culpable for wanting to arm the very Islamics who are now taking over Iraq.

Amazing chutzpah. Amazing stupidity.
