Maybe because it is? Nah, that can't be it. Nothing's his fault.
In the last few days, city after city has fallen to a massive army of Al Qaeda offshoot terrorists called ISIS. As the Daily Beast puts it, ISIS is the terrorist organization so extreme that it was "booted" from Al Qaeda proper. They organized, trained, took Mosul and, as a result, have now confiscated gobs of formerly-U.S. military hardware.
With the fall of Mosul on Tuesday, Iraqs al Qaeda offshoot has not only seized the countrys second-largest city, it appears it also has come into possession of the heavy weapons and vehicles the U.S. military had provided Iraqs military to fight them.
Now, the Independent reports that Baghdad is preparing for the worst as the army of Islamic militants threatens to overrun the capital city.

I am amazed that anyone could think it is NOT Obama's fault
The MSM needs to get on top of this problem.
Of course, it’s Obama’s fault.
As the Daily Beast puts it, ISIS is the terrorist organization so extreme that it was booted from Al Qaeda proper.The Daily Therion is a laugh a minute, is it not. What could be un-extreme about any of these Islamic terrorists?
I never watch the network news because it just irritates me.
I did catch just a few words as I was switching channels.
I am not sure which network it was but he said something very much like this. The first few words are an exact quote.
“Make no mistake, this was caused by our intervention in Iraq by the Bush administration.” I am not certain he used the word Bush but if he didn’t he said basically the same thing.
What about this don’t you understand?
If Bush I and II had never been born this wouldn’t
be a problem...
All the king's horses and all the king's men, can't put Barry together again!
The U.S. leaves creating a power vacuum. A vacuum that quickly becomes filled by Islamic extremists. Not only is it easy to understand, it was easy to predict. Good lord, is MSNBC THAT obtuse?
“Of course, its Obamas fault.
It cant be he is having Kerry send them blankets. What more can he do.
He just moves on to the next big mess he intends to make Now that he doesn't have to run again, he doesn't care...just keeps on doing what he wants to do. Nobody tries to stop him so why should he care?
released = release, jeez
A bigger question, “Is the formation of a new WORLD ISLAMIC CALIPHATE Obama’s fault?”
Iraq disappears due to ISLAM because the ME dictators, removed with such efficiency by the US Muslim Brotherhood alliance with the US form the Bush’s to Obama, no longer exist to prevent the Muslim vacuum left being filled by a new Caliphate, carefully, and necessarily dissolved by wise men of the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 in Paris.
Iraq does not matter with Syria except for the water it controls, now in ISIS hands along with what is in store with what Islam does when it has money, weapons and masses of willing Jihadists. What a Caliphate can do, with demonstrative heads rolling in Iraq, is what it has done thru history, expand territory in a slicing manner.
Is Obama the latest “useful idiot” inabler President ridding the ME of its last dictators for the vacuum to be filled by a Caliphate”? We will know shortly. Egypt and Agaganistan will fall quickly to a Caliphate with the US withdrawing. Will we get our forces and mission out of Afgainstan for less than a MASSIVE price?
The wrong questions are posed about Obama.
He’s only been in office a year. Must be anyone’s fault but his.
It’s not Obamas fault. It’s Obamas desire.
“If Bush I and II had never been born this wouldnt.....”
Your probably right but there is such a thing as “ if you break it you own it.
tet68 I was there, tet69 too
Everything this A-Hole Resident has done during the last six years of his term has been against the best interest of the United States and the American people.
Its as if the American people elected Joe Stalin to lead our country.
This disaster and every other disaster obama has created is his responsibility.I hope the democrat A-holes that voted for him appreciate what he’s done.The lives of their children will depend on it.
Hundreds of people getting their heads loped off and their main concern is how Obama is viewed?
