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

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.”

He’s right. It was President Jarrett’s decision.

“Obama: It Wasn’t 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 pledged during his campaign back in 2008 to pull troops out of Iraq!

Yeah, yeah. We know. You didn't do it. It was like that when you got there.

Bart Simpson may as well be President.

“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.....

Not only was that decision made by the Iraqi government but Obama found out about it while reading the New York Times.

Juan McCain (so taken with a grain of salt) said that the SOFA was not reached because the Iraqi government rejected the number of troops Obama was planning on leaving in country...I think the number was 3,000.

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...
