As you recall, in the spring of 2003, President Bush announced MISSION ACCOMPLISHED which meant the war in Iraq was over and Saddam Hussein had been defeated. As you recall, it was two years later that President Bush dispatched General David Petraeus to Baghdad in order to ensure that when he says, Mission Accomplished, it is ended. General Petraeus initiated the famous, “Surge” and within a few months announced, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. It is now nearly a decade since the Mission was accomplished and war rages in Iraq. Prime Minister Maliki refused the Obama offer of military advisers because he would not guarantee that Americans would be tried in military courts if charged with crimes.
The situation in Iraq has now reached the stage of chaos. Al Qaeda style Islamic State of Iraq in Syria is now roaming undisputed in the country. Yesterday, they gained control of the second largest city in Iraq, Mosul, freed over a thousand prisoners, and are wandering the streets firing bullets in the air because the Iraq army has fled. I have no doubt John Boehner, Ted Cruz, and John McCain will blame the dude from Africa for this fiasco. President Obama urged Maliki to form a coalition government, and include Sunni leaders with important roles. He refused and now terrorists are gaining control of the country.
Reality, Prime Minister Maliki must resign and allow a coalition government including Sunni leaders to assume control of the nation.
Then again, perhaps Fox News personnel would volunteer their military expertise in order to save Iraq.
