WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama invited the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives to the White House on Wednesday for a meeting on Iraq, according to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
McConnell told reporters at the Capitol that he, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker John Boehner and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi had been invited.
A White House official confirmed the meeting, describing it as part of Obama's "ongoing consultations" with congressional leaders on foreign policy issues, including Iraq.
The Republican lawmakers said they hoped Obama would spell out a plan for Iraq.
"We spent years, vast sums of money, and - most importantly - thousands of American lives to improve Iraqâs security and make America safer. Squandering that legacy would be a tragic mistake," said Michael Steel, a spokesman for Boehner.

Yet another meeting! All this guy does is have meetings, meetings that accomplish nothing.
He’s looking for someone to place the blame on.
they hadnt already settled On George Bush? I mean he was once in charge....it must be his doing.
For what? To get their approval on an unconditional surrender?
LOL! Roger that.
By the way ... love the picture on your home page. ;-)
I’m sort of confused....Obama has a pen and a phone...
I thought he no longer needed Congress....
Meetings and feel good seminars are all the libs know how to do!
Crypto-Islam is the secret adherence to Islam while publicly professing to be of another faith; people who practice crypto-Islam are referred to as “crypto-Muslims”.
The word has mainly been used in reference to Spanish Muslims during the Inquisition (i.e., the Moriscos and their usage of Aljamiado).
Related to this term are the concepts of crypto-Muslim subgroups, such as crypto-Sunni Muslims and crypto-Shia Muslims. Each of these Muslim subgroups has suffered persecution at various times under various leaders where it was advantageous to appear as part of the dominant (sometimes also Muslim) group.
Some mention was made of the concept during the 2008 U.S. Presidential Campaign in accusations directed towards President Barack Obama. From 1969 to 1971,
Obama attended a secular Indonesian state primary school. Although Obama has family and ancestors with divergent religious views, he has repeatedly stated
he is a Christian and has never been a Muslim.
AD), a wealthy merchant, was a paternal uncle and companion of Muhammad, only a few years his senior. During the early years of Islam he protected Muhammad while he was in Mecca, but only officially adopted the religion after the Battle of Badr in 624 AD. He concealed his faith, from the Quraishites and was the principal advocate for the Aqaba Pledge. His descendants founded the Abbassid caliphate in 750 AD.
First of all, you have to be on board with me so I can blame you if it goes to hell....
setting up congress to be the scapegoat.
Knowing the Kenyan, he’ll probably turn it into a fundraiser. The Republicans better leave their wallets at home.
you can smell it coming. Obummer has no use for Republicans what so ever and bypasses them continually until now. He will want many Republicans involved in this so when it goes SNAFU, and it will, he will say , Look the Republicans wanted this. Anyway that is how I see it coming down.
Obama and the WH is besieged. All of these scandals and ineptitudes and conspiracies have to be taking a toll.
There are constant questions and uproar about what the h3ll the Hero of Benghazi is doing.
They have to be spending an inordinate amount of time strategizing about responding to the daily onslaught of charges, revelations, accusations, etc.
It might be a good thing that he is so under attack, but one thing is sure he is not responding to problems and crises and I think they are snowballing.
Thank you. We’re both a couple years older now.
