    It was a house of cards waiting to collapse. Their government was alienating the sunnies and kurds and they even threw them out of the military.

    You got any more revisionist stories to tell?

They could negotiate a SOFA Agreement, as in many other places around the world but, as Obama has said, he didn't want to sign an agreement but wanted to bring the troops home. He then said what a great job he did in doing that, and as he promised. This was against the advice of all the military, and what's happening now was predicted by the CIA and the Bush administration and now even Obama is changing his story for the the low info's. I know you know all this, btw, im just reiterating for the LIV's.

    MR. ROMNEY: [W]ith regards to Iraq, you and I agreed, I believe, that there should have been a status of forces agreement. Did you —

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: That's not true.

    MR. ROMNEY: Oh, you didn't — you didn't want a status of forces agreement?

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: No, but what I — what I would not have done is left 10,000 troops in Iraq that would tie us down. That certainly would not help us in the Middle East

    Joe Biden in an interview proclaimed that Iraq would be one of the Obama Administrations greatest achievements. You really should pay more attention to what is going on before you accuse others of making things up.

    The thousands who died after 'Mission Accomplished' and the thousands who would die to keep 'the promise'....

    CON no sense! A contrived series of lies to build a house of cards, a coalition that was a few miles south of great, a democracy in name only, and a new terrorist breeding ground where none had existed before. More over we enabled Iran to gain HUGE advantage in the region. As far as winning a war, that is off the deep end!!!! We BRIBED our way out of Iraq after doing ever stupid move imaginable!

    As far as President Obama pulling out our troops- the host nation refused to sign a status of forces agreement. Would you have us force our 'ally' to the table? Force out one hand picked crony for a more pliant one??? More bribes to what many outside of the CON circle saw as a corrupt Shia power structure. (do note the Kurds refused to play with anyone, even now as ISIL is poised on their borders)

    BushII never won Iraq so the Obama could lose it.... get real....

    If Obama left the decisions up to the US military then I think there would be a coalition force much more quickly,
    Killing Isis who kills Americas is one thing. I feel any action like that should be met with significantly greater and harsher force. And then we should leave. Anytime someone considers harming America...they should have to consider that our reaction will be triple what they do.

    Equally they should also feel that we won't be involved if they don't involve us.

    Doing what we are doing is not going to win us any support and it is only going to create more problems down the road. Just like the Cold War.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    The only revisionist stories are Obama's. He sold Iraq out, and now many have died.

    Every so often the left just comes out and says it like it is. Thank you for demonstrating your true colors. Perhaps you can tell this to the mothers of those children beheaded by ISIS.

    Then why pull out every last remnant of American Military personnel ?

    If it was so unstable that is.

    Work on your reading comp. When Obama said, "No" he meant he is saying he didn't say he didn't want a SOFA.

    What do you take me for?
