Let me recite the new Republican fairy tale about Iraq.
1. The famous Surge ended the war in Iraq and the good guys won.
2. Iraq was a peaceful land in 2009 when along came Barack Obama.
3. His inept lack of leadership ended peace and along came ISIS.
4. We should all thank God George Bush was President and his wonderful advisors, Cheney and Rumsfeld.
1. President Obama DID offer to keep about 10,000 US troops in Iraq.
2. The point of contention was that he could not agree with Iraq demands that American soldiers would be subject to Islamic Law.
3. It was the Maliki government which Bush installed that persecuted Sunnis and led to their becoming friendly to ISIS.
