Well, he is back on the political stage, all eye glasses and all. Once again he is charging President Obama for any and all problems in the world. If the Texas Ranger baseball team loses a game, blame it on the black dude from Africa. So, here is the latest take from Rick on the situation in the Middle East. ” No decision, no decision has down more havoc then the president’s withdrawal of American troops from Iraq. Back in January, 2009 when Barack Obama became the Commander-n-Chief, Iraq had been largely pacified. America has won the war.” It is now clear that Rick has decided to become an historian. So, Iraq was largely pacified, now that is an interesting take on what happened.
The so-called “Surge” under leadership of General Petraeus was, in reality, a joint effort by American and Sunni soldiers against al-Qaeda. But, George Bush had done a few things along the way toward destruction.
1. He disbanded the Iraq army which resulted in over 500,000 Iraq men to lose their jobs. And, he allowed them to return home with their weapons.
2. He installed Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite fanatic whose main friend was Iran as the prime minister of Iraq. It was MALIKI who disbanded Sunni Awakening Councils which led the fight against al-Qaeda.
3. So, why did Obama withdraw US troops? President Bush has arranged for an agreement with Maliki about retention of American forces. President Obama agreed to that idea, but the sticking point was refusal to Maliki to withdraw his demand that US troops in Iraq who committed a crime would be tried in a Sharia court. Just imagine what Rick Perry would say about Americans being tried in a Muslim court of justice!
It was Maliki who instituted a vicious attack on Sunnis which led to the arrival of ISIS. Oh, Rick, many of the leaders of ISIS are former Iraq officers who were fired on orders of George Bush!

There are always some certainties in life and when it comes to the issue of the infamous 9/11 then Fox News and most Republicans are absolutely certain that torturing people, innocent of guilty was an absolute necessity. During World War II, when the US and its allies fought the German army and the Japanese army, they, for some strange reason, did not have to resort to torture. OK, there were incidents when members of our armed forces did torture the enemy, but such tactics were never part of the policies of our government. And, gee whiz, we defeated enemies which had combined forces of at least fifteen million men. Of course, when it comes to defeating an enemy which has, at best, about one hundred THOUSAND, the threat to our very existence is much greater.
Majid Khan was one of the two bit terrorists who was involved with Osama bin Laden and the CIA needed information so they sort of tortured the guy. He claims they poured ice water over this genitals, beat the hell out of him. A rule enforced by those who tortured during the Bush administration is that lawyers for the person being tortured were not allowed to tell anyone their client was being tortured. This was an example of how the American government got information. I hate to inform the Bush folks that interrogators during World War II obtained information without beating the hell out of anyone. Just ask Henry Kissinger who was an interrogator if he ever employed torture!
