    I agree she would be fired but it would be such a pleasure to finally hear the truth from someone in this administration. She would probably have a bigger best seller if she did tell the truth and wrote of the responses she received from the inner circle and from the Democrat Party. She could certainly expect to be annually audited.

    I agree.

    All of the kings horses and all of the kings men couldn't turn Iraq into a functioning democracy.

    That place is a lost cause that's not worth one American life.

    Just being a good person and helping your neighbor is enough. What good has BHO, who occupies the office of the (formerly) most powerful nation in the world done?

    Yea, they can fight side by side with Iran's Revolutionary Guard and chant long live Komeni! When did you become an Iranian sympathizer?

    It wasn't always a 'lost cause'. There was an excellent chance that Iraq could survive had BHO not abandoned the country and those who had fought for it. Recall what Joe Biden said? Although he falsely tried to take credit for the success there was definitely success. Watch Joe Biden Call Iraq "One of the Great Achievements of This Administration" | The Daily Caller

    You still have those neocons dreams in your head. Bush turned Iraq over to the Iranians when Maliki was elected and they gave the orders to kick us out. That was the "success" Biden really was talking about. No more troops= no more wasted American lives.........Just one more way Obama stopped us from digging that hole to hell path GW put us on. Now you want us to fight with the Iranians in a holy war....too much.

    Watch the video first and then comment on what he was talking about.

    Biden is one of the few politicians who has skin in the game yet you ridicule him. It is shameful.

    I'll believe that when we see or hear of it.

    1. The towns ISIL has taken over thus far have been Sunni towns. The last time the Sunni tribes turned against ISIL, ISIL almost didn't survive. It is therefore likely that ISIL has made a bargain with the Sunni tribal leadership - autonomy in return for victory. Most of the towns that have been taken thus far have had at least a heavy element that wanted to be taken over.

    2. Baghdad is not a Sunni Town. It is run by the Shia, who will actually fight for it. Militia's fighting with actual determination can turn urban warfare into a bloody nightmare. For all it's resources and men, ISIL is still fighting a war on two and a half fronts - against Iraq, against Syria, and to an extent against other extremist groups who might take advantage to impinge on its territory. It is unlikely they have the ability to forcibly seize and hold a city the size of Baghdad against the will of its populace while also holding on to what they have already taken.

    3. Baghdad is defended by Qods Force - Iranian Special Forces. These are the guys who gave us the Explosively Formed Penetrator, and almost caused a political swell at home large enough to drive us from Iraq. And Rouhani has already stated that the desecration of any significant Shia shrine would be a red line for him. My bet is, unlike our current feckless administration, he actually means that.
