Asked if he had any regrets about not leaving a residual force in Iraq, Obama advised reporters to Keep in mind, that wasnt 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, weve removed more than 100,000 troops from Iraq.

He’s right. It was President Jarrett’s decision.
“Did you see that? A bird hit my ball! “
The old Randy Johnson excuse,eh??
“Obama: It Wasnt My Decision to Pull Troops Out of Iraq; ‘That was a decision made by the Iraqi government’ “
Obama proves again that he is—as we learned a long time ago—a lying POS (Piece Of S***).

He was bullied by Maliki, the big meanie.
Leading with policies pulled from his behind.
Bart Simpson may as well be President.
It’s OK little man, we know you have never made a bad decision, after all, you are the King.
“So far Zero has taken credit for nothing...so he has done nothing.”
He killed OBL.
He hasn’t taken the blame for anything that has been criticized as a mistake, so he has done nothing wrong.
What a PUTZ.
Unbelievable - he’s been touting his getting us out of Iraq as one of his biggest accomplishments - and now that the chickens are coming home to roost so to speak, he’s not responsible after all - it would be fun to watch if it weren’t putting the country into such danger.....
Bull Crap. It indeed was Obamas decision to NOT use force majeur. What an idiot.
Not only was that decision made by the Iraqi government but Obama found out about it while reading the New York Times.
The Iraqi government wanted 10,000 and didn't agree to 3,000 because that number would basically be worthless in maintaining the peace long term...
