Senator John McCain is ready to fight someone at the drop of the hat. He is ready to portray Barack Obama as the cause of any and all problems in the world. The Senator has now charged Obama policies for the current rise of ISIS. He charges that leaving Iraq was a mistake. “And the fact that they didn’t have a residual force in Iraq overriding his military advisers is the reason why we’re facing ISIS today.” Let’s look at the record:
1. President George Bush negotiated with the Iraq government to have American forces out of the country by 2011.
2. President Obama AGREED to leave a residual force of about 5,000 American troops PROVIDED that US forces were not subject to trial in an Iraq court of law.
3. The Iraq government refused to this request. I wonder what Senator McCain would have said if an American soldier was tried for a crime in a Muslim sharia law court!!
ISIS is the result of the George Bush invasion of Iraq that was supported by Senator John McCain!
Oh, the Wall Street Journal has concluded that Dick Cheney was correct all the time.
