    Wrong again.

    The ISIS Creation Myth (Newsweek)

    Yet the story of ISIS’s rise is far more complex, former U.S. officials and Middle East analysts say. While both Bush and Obama deserve some blame, ISIS could not have become such a battle-hardened, well-funded jihadi group without the help of leaders and sympathizers in Iraq, Syria, Turkey and the Sunni monarchies of the Persian Gulf. Their support for ISIS—over Washington’s objections—underscores the limits of American power and influence in the region. As Douglas Ollivant, a former director for Iraq on the National Security Council for both Bush and Obama, puts it: “We Americans are the supporting cast, not the lead actors.”

    The banner- the speech?
    Misinterpreted by the left?- the banner- Great photo op- and it was used as such.

    Now the speech.
    CNN.com - Bush makes historic speech aboard warship - May. 1, 2003

    The liberation of Iraq is a crucial advance in the campaign against terror. We have removed an ally of Al Qaida and cut off a source of terrorist funding.

    AQ and Saddam- Right - you still buy that BS?
    If my post offends you, I deeply Apple-O-Jize.

    Maybe English isn't your first language but yes, I believe the Bush speech, the overthrow of Saddam Hussein eliminated a major supporter of terrorism and a funder of terrorism.

    Perhaps you forget the Iranian funded, trained and equipped Militias?
    Perhaps you forget the Sunni uprising?
    Perhaps you are mighty selective. Yeah
    Perhaps the question you asked is BS.

    No question about it, the U.S. involvement in WWII had nothing to do with securing England. History has been re-written

    Perhaps you forgot the surge and the conditions in Iraq when Bush left office. The question I asked is accurate so how about answering it

    Well here it comes for ya.
    I am not well educated.
    My grammar sucks.
    Much to old to give a hoot about it at this point in life.
    Next I am quite comfortable financially.

    Next if you wish to bring up or criticize my grammar - well piss off.

    Good now that this issue has been addressed we shall carry on with the discussion.

    Bush noted Saddam and AQ - Funding - do you believe that Saddam funded AQ?

    Perhaps you forgot about that General, testifying before Congress on the troops that would be needed to maintain order/control in Iraq.
    Went against the WH and Cheney line.
    His replacement was announced approx a tad over a year ahead of time.
    Effectively ending his carrier.

    Why was the surge needed?
