    But Obama was only following the deal Bush made when he pulled the troops out, so it isn't his fault.

    A lot of the people who belong to this ISIS/IFIL group are Iraqis who are looking for some payback for their friends, relatives and fellow tribesmen who were killed for no good reason by U.S. forces that Bush sent to Iraq.

    This is kind of like the Hatfields and McCoys, but on a much larger scale.

    In fact, the American NIE produced during the Bush administration, yeah, the one you either don't understand, or refuse to acknowledge, concluded that the invasion of Iraq caused a sharp increase in Islamic extremism and made America less safe!

    As already posted, no NIE would ever assess how safe was/is the US. That would require assessment of US countermeasures, and that is beyond the scope of any NIE.

    Here, I'll source it from FoxNews, so you'll not think it leftist propaganda.

    The key findings of the National Intelligence Estimate state that the number of "jihadists" is growing in size and geographic dispersion, and if the trend continues it could lead to more terror attacks worldwide and more threats to U.S. interests at home and abroad.

    No, because those things didn't happen. But libs do indeed love losing wars. They can't surrender fast enough.

We are going to be paying the price for GWB's actions for decades to come. You would have to be completely naïve to not understand that.
    You dont appear to understand basic history, its easy to believe that.
