President Obama Has Ended the War in Iraq

October 21, 2011

In 2008, in the height of the presidential campaign, then-Senator Obama made a promise to give our military a new mission: ending the war in Iraq.

As the election unfolded, he reiterated this pledge again and again — but cautioned that we would be “as careful getting out of Iraq as we were careless getting in.”

    Before President Bush left office, Obama — then a private citizen — intervened in foreign affairs, sending a letter to the Iraqi goverrnment telling them to not move forward with negotiations to bring home American troops. He did not want to allow the outgoing president credit for withdrawing troops.

    As soon as Obama was in office he did what Pres. Bush was doing. His letter was intended to give Obama the glory rather than GWB, and it worked. Negotiations came to a halt until Obama was in office.

    Of course, this caused more American boys to be killed, but it served Obama. It was also a direct violation of the Logan Act, which made it treason.

    But ‘treason’ is such an old timey word, like morality. And Obama has the shade that protects him from the justice that would have destroyed anyone else…

      Smokey, except Barry failed to get a reasonable agreement for the number of troops needed for training and specops work to keep Iraq relatively stable. He pulled almost all out and we see the result as we are seeing the result in Afghanistan after his mishandling the withdrawal there also!!

    Obama snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in Iraq and used the excuse of the Iraqi failure to make an acceptable status of forces agreement to do it. Anyone that believed that crap is a fool. All of those lives wasted along with the other less important treasure. Strategic objectives not met. Special Ops forces worn down and burned out by multiple deployments so that a large number of operators got out for civilian jobs. We have NOTHING substantial to show for all of that except the Iraqi lives touched in a positive way during the years there.

    The Kurds are fighting and we should support them 100%. They have been faithful allies all during our time in Iraq. I hate the fact that because Obama screwed up we have to send more and this last 1,500 will not be the end of it by any means, but it should to be done.

    What a sick f@ck we have as President.

    “we would be “as careful getting out of Iraq as we were careless getting in.””

    LOL! did just what he said! He couldn’t care less.

  6. Dear Obama,

    I am a graduate with a degree in environmental science and am worried now that the world has discovered that man made Global Warming is a fraud, because my expensive degree will be worthless. I need to pay my $100,000 student loans and can not do it working at McDonalds (the only other job I qualify for). I am willing to fabricate evidence, cherry pick data, make up alarmist predictions about the North Pole melting, and massive unprecedented extinctions. I will say anything to continue as a climatologist including claiming the ocean recently rose drastically around a Caribbean island.

    I even support the massive carbon tax although I know it will raise the cost of electricity, gas, heating fuel and food to a level that many elderly cannot afford. I don’t care if Grandma will be pushed off a cliff when she is forced to choose between medicine and heat in the winter. My career is more important than a million Grandmas in unmarked graves. Obama, please sell the lie because my income and respect in the community depends on it.

    signed … Climatologist with many published papers and much respect in the community of peers that also need your funding to remain my close peers.

    12 years after George Bush irresponsibly started it. He broke it, you are blaming the guy who got stuck trying to fix it.

    • Jim Hansen started it. King George the W could not stop it because cocaine was so popular among rich college kids at the time, whose parents paid for them to become the great environmental scientists of the future, but they died of crack or opiate OD’s. Obama was stuck trying to fix it? Oh, that is so sickeningly stupid. Have you ever been outside your apartment?

    • kuhnkat says:

      Got stuck fixing it?? Barry begged and lied his way to that position. He sold his soul for that job. Then, depending on your system of beliefs he 1) is doing exactly what his leftard fellow travelers want him to do destroying the US economy and what trust and position in the world we had, and/or 2) supported his Islamic people by sending arms and money to his Jihadis friends while putting Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic operatives into positions of influence here in the US (similar to FDR and the Commies during WWII), and/or 3) payed back the radical enviros for their support by implementing insane energy policy and environmental regulations, and/or 4) was simply incompetent.

      Actually, if you pay any attention to reality, you know Barry does very little and Valerie Jarrett and others do all the lifting.

    • Hey mf, there are Progressives in my neighborhood who said the same thing yesterday!

      “Obama got stuck with fixing Iraq.”

      I know the Dems are butthurt about the elections and are brainstorming about a winning response but I did not expect them to come up so fast with this novel idea of blaming Bush.

      Man, are they quick! Are you on the central distribution list?

    • rah says:

      Really tell me when did Obama declare what Victory in Iraq would be? He NEVER DID! When the CNC refuses to define what objectives are required to make the end game and what that end game is, then your just wasting lives and treasure for nothing. It’s criminal!

  8. Phil Jones says:

    Obama was supposed to end War and Improve our standing in the World…

    He’s done neither… Russia, the Euro’s, China and across the Mid East they laugh and no longer fear the USA… No longer look to the U.S. to lead… And ISIS .. An even more radical group… Has swept up control of the Mid East…

    Obama doesn’t care about America..
