    Do you have any proof that ISIS wouldn't have grown if we left 10K troops there?
    Would YOU leave troops there if they could be prosecuted under Sharia Law?
    Whos at the wheel, Obama or Bush?

    This is whats most amazing to me. Obama ran on getting out of Iraq. He campaigned to get of Iraq twice. He claimed it was safe there despite his generals warnings, and then after pulling out its somehow blamed on SOFA. Thats simply a discredited and silly argument.

    The U.S.–Iraq Status of Forces Agreement (official name: Agreement Between the United States of America and the Republic of Iraq On the Withdrawal of United States Forces from Iraq and the Organization of Their Activities during Their Temporary Presence in Iraq) was a status of forces agreement (SOFA) between Iraq and the United States, signed by President George W. Bush in 2008. It established that U.S. combat forces would withdraw from Iraqi cities by June 30, 2009, and all U.S. forces will be completely out of Iraq by December 31, 2011.[1] The pact required criminal charges for holding prisoners over 24 hours, and required a warrant for searches of homes and buildings that were not related to combat.[1] U.S. contractors working for U.S. forces would have been subject to Iraqi criminal law, while contractors working for the State Department and other U.S. agencies would retain their immunity. If U.S. forces committed still undecided "major premeditated felonies" while off-duty and off-base, they would have been subjected to an undecided procedures laid out by a joint U.S.-Iraq committee if the U.S. certified the forces were off-duty.[2][3][1][4]
    The agreement expired at midnight on December 31, 2011, even though the United States completed its final withdrawal of troops from Iraq on December 16, 2011. The symbolic ceremony in Baghdad officially "cased" (retired) the flag of U.S. forces in Iraq, according to army tradition.[5]

    I love your clear partisan hackery. "Uhh no lets focus on Obama! Not the whole picture!". You basically even admitted it.

    I can admit who's POTUS, many here can't seem to do that. BTW, Obama made the right move by sending in troops, but its a day late and a dollar short. Its a dog and pony show-I prefer definitive substance.

    But you refuse to talk about the historical subjects, and past reasons that have brought us here right?

    Dog and pony show? Not this is not a "dog and pony show" this is continuing the **** up which has already been started. Until a president finally realizes that we cannot be the policemen of the world and stop this **** we will always be here on this continuous war bull**** which only satisfies the military industrial complex (which a GOP POTUS warned us about).
