    Obama took credit for putting "AQ on the run".

    Are you suggesting he was lying in taking credit? If he took credit then, why isn't he responsible now?

    Probably his solution would be to give them their own country.

    Sometimes I think Al Qaeda just means "bad guy Muslims."

    Except that I'm no liberal and have far more criticism of this president than you.

    Re: Al Qaeda controls more territory than ever in Middle East

    AQ is a function of the mujahideen war in Afganistan, while Wahhabism is an export from Saudi Arabia to Paki.
    It's splitting hairs, not really matter.

    Syria is changing by the minute almost al-Nursa and ISIS are no longer allied -the brutality of ISIS seems to have sickened even al_Nursa..

    It's beyond complicated, and I'm not going to even try to trace it.

    I did read the FSA or the Islamic Front (not sure) is taking back Aleppo, though ISIL is still big in southern Syria.

    This just goes on, i'm not really able to distinguish coalitions anymore, they change almost weekly.

    Sufffice to say the spillover from Syria has allowed the gains in Anbar province - which is Sunni, which is at war with Shi'a. which is the governemce of Iraq.

    ...............not much we can do ( or should do -we've already FUBAR'd Iraq) other then to train up some Iraqi forces in Jordan (special ops)
    and continue to support the Iraqi army.

    The Iraqi army JUST LIKE UNDER SADDAM is the unifying force there.

    All presidents take credit when things go the way they like and shelter themselves from responsibility when they don't. Obama will leave office but US foreign policy will continue to be a destabilising force in the ME, regardless of who is president.
