    like Al queada, their main beef is a US presence in the region, and our support for Israel....saying it's all about us invading Iraq is inaccurate.

    they came to prominence in the syrian civil war though....

    Yes, though at that time they were called 'rebels'. Still are, I suppose.

Any regrets about that decision in 2011?” a reporter asked. “Well, keep in mind that wasn’t a decision made by me,” Obama said. “That was a decision made by the Iraqi government.”
    becausse all of the link provided by me showed that he was looking to extend our stay there. Or are you say that all media outlets mis-reported this?
    Im saying that obama has contradicted himself on his reasons for pulling out of Iraq-AND when its politically expedient-but nobodies buying it. The election is less than 3 months off.

    2 very different subjects. But Obama wanted the to be able to say he ended the war in iraq, consequences be damned. I'd love to talk about Benghazi, but lets not veer off subject-this is about Iraq.

    Again, you aren't familiar with the facts of the case. You are now simply repeating Obama's long discredited excuse, and tragically you are doing it AFTER we know the facts.

    Yeah I already posted that wikipedia like... it back up my point. How could Obama have accomplished the extesion. You said it was easy and the wiki page doesn't go into the detail of alternate realities / how things could have gone under different circumstanses

    You've ignored the question. How does letting Americanns die help him politically? He took a hit in the Polls.
