    President weak sauce doesn't even know what to do-he does not want the fallout from the collapsing iraq (to terrorists, leaving the US worse off than before the invasion) but at the same time, his entire presidency was based on getting out of Iraq. He has his lefties to worry about-so to ramp up a military presence there (and just before the mid terms no less) essentially means another high profile failure (like Git Mo, the NSA, the ACA, etc). He also has his legacy (which is not going to be good) to think about.

    Nobody knows WHAT his policy is? Whats the Obama doctrine in the ME? Can you tell me?
    I doubt that Obama cares much about his legacy with the general American public. His legacy in far left circles, or the Muslim world, will be more important to him.

    You might be right, in the end he will be remembered as a piss-poor president who also happened to be bi-racial. To libs this will mean the world.

    You're still complaining that Obama followed the Bush administration's withdrawal plans?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    But, Obama's now saying that it's all Bush's fault.

    Yeah, typical. Of course that meme from this president and his administration has lost all credibility for a long time now, just as much as this president and his administration have lost all their credibility right along with it.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    According to the article, help is arriving "too little, too late" for most of the survivors stranded on the mountain! These are families with children who were trying to escape being slaughtered by ISIS! How very, very sad!

    Who campaigned on, "I will get us out of Iraq"? Now, "it's the other guy's fault".
