Obama: It Wasn’t My Decision to Pull Troops Out of Iraq; 'That was a decision made by the Iraqi
Washington Free Beacon ^ | 6/19/14 | Washington Free Beacon Staff

Posted on 06/19/2014 4:06:07 PM PDT by Nachum

Asked if he had any “regrets” about not leaving a residual force in Iraq, Obama advised reporters to “Keep in mind, that wasn’t a decision made by me. That was a decision made by the Iraqi government.”

Back in 2011, Obama proudly touted the small number of troops remaining in Iraq as one of his foremost accomplishments. “When I came into office,” he boasted at the time, “I pledged to bring the war in Iraq to a responsible end. As Commander in Chief, I ended our combat mission last year and pledged to keep our commitment to remove all our troops by the end of 2011. To date, we’ve removed more than 100,000 troops from Iraq.”

Our first child president.

Maybe if he didn’t cut the residual troop number proposals down to about 4 soldiers the Iraqis would have taken us seriously.

In a word, no.

He is a classic narcissist and a sociopath, and a marxist muslim homosexual that hates this country only a little less than he hates white people of European descent, well, to be fair, he hates both equally.

And he is not eligible for the office stole by lying.

Born of two American citizens? Eligible. Not born of two American citizens? Ineligible.

I could care less if he was born in Hawaii or Kenya or Vancouver, it does not matter.

His listed birth father is a Kenyan citizen—whether the slut that bore him lied about that too does not matter.

The record shows Barck Obama Sr., Kenyan national as Odingo’s father.

Case closed. The rest is just theater.

Not his fault.

Except for that whole training , equipping, supporting and providing weapons for the al Qaeda ISIS insurgents who are now running wild through Syria and Iraq cutting peoples heads off and committing mass murder of Christians and Shiites.

Obama released the leaders of this insurgency but how can he be blamed for that

Obama has been organizing a community of terrorists who are so violent, unstable , bloodthirsty and psychopathic even their al Qaeda parent group has reservations about them.

And who can forget the Arab Spring that kick started the cycle of violence and instability in the entire region and set the stage for the humanitarian tragedy in Syria and the Tet style invasion/ insurgency of Iraq

Nothing is his fault.

Seriously, who can pin this Obama.

He does , after all , have an alibi.

Everybody knows he was out on a vacation golfing in Palm Springs when this was all going down.

Che Hussein Obama is a Sunni muslim.

If Maliki was a Sunni and his government was favoring fellow Sunni’s then Obama would be laying waste to these rebels.

Bahrain is ruled by a small Sunni minority (about 20%), when they had protest they just machine gunned the protestors and the Saudi’s brought in armed vehicles. Not a peep out of Obama back then. No outrage, no tears shed for Shia plight in Bahrain.

Gee...

In the good old days when you fought a war and won, you set the terms... Not the people you just defeated... You set the terms because you paid in blood and treasure for the right to do so.

But not Obama... Thousands of Americans dead and hundreds of billions spent but no follow up required... A real leader that one...

This would be a good time for Kim Jong Un to ask Obama to remove American troops from Korea’s demilitarized zone, which would allow North Korean soldiers to sweep down and conquer South Korea.

As Obama just reported, when Iraq’s leader asked Obama to remove our troops from his country, he did so. When Vladimir Putin asked Obama not to send missile defense systems to Poland and the Czech Republic, he also complied.

In addition, when Putin asked Obama not to send military strikes against Syria after Syria’s dictator used chemical weapons, Obama again stood down. And it seems clear that when the president of Mexico asked Obama not to build a border fence so that Mexican criminals and other riff-raff would have free access to our country, Obama was perfectly happy to comply.

So what are the North Koreans waiting for? And why haven’t the Chinese asked Obama to withdraw our Seventh Fleet from their region?

The only thing Obama ever refuses to withdraw are our embassy personnel from regions under fire.

That’s a new wrinkle. So, he has moved away from GWB, and all the other culprits, onto the Iraqi leader.

Noting is ever Obama’s fault. He is without a doubt the greatest buckpassrt in history.
