Obama is now claiming that pulling our forces out of Iraq wasn’t his idea, even though he spent nearly every waking hour pushing a pull out during the years he first ran for president not to mention all his actions and public speeches on the issue he made after he won.
This weekend he said that the fact that we have no American troops in Iraq that can help defeat the Islamist ISIS terrorists is not his fault. In fact, he doesn’t know why everyone keeps blaming him for the lack of troops.
Attempting to avoid blame once again, Obama said with his best, bald faced, faux shocked face, “This issue keeps on coming up as if this was my decision.”
So, why did we pull out troops out? “The reason that we did not have a follow-on force in Iraq was because a majority of Iraqis did not want U.S. troops there and politically they could not pass the kind of laws that would be required to protect our troops in Iraq,” he said.
Like most of what this fraud says, this is an outright lie.
This cretin we have in the White House is the most brazen liar we’ve ever had sitting there. Worse, he thinks that you, me and every other American are so stupid that none of us will realize he’s lying right to our faces.
We all know that this prevaricator ran for three years claiming that the war in Iraq was “the wrong war.” He said we should never have gone into Iraq, claimed that Bush’s troop surge was ill advised, said that he wouldn’t have ordered the surge, and wanted to stop it.
Here is what he said in 2007 when asked how we could pull out US troops from Iraq:
“Look, I opposed this war from the start. Because I anticipated that we would be creating the kind of sectarian violence that we’ve seen and that it would distract us from the war on terror. At this point, I think we can be as careful getting out as we were careless getting in. But we have to send a clear message to the Iraqi government as well as to the surrounding neighbors that there is no military solution to the problems that we face in Iraq. So we have to begin a phased withdrawal; have our combat troops out by March 31st of next year; and initiate the kind of diplomatic surge that is necessary in these surrounding regions to make sure that everybody is carrying their weight. And that is what I will do on day one, as president of the United States, if we have not done it in the intervening months.”
He was 100 percent in favor of a pull out of US troops… before he was against it, apparently.
Then in 2009 after he became President and began his draw down of troops, Obama celebrated his move on no less than the White House’s own website.
He also celebrated via a press release, where Obama then said, “After taking office, I announced a new strategy that would end our combat mission in Iraq and remove all of our troops by the end of 2011. So today, I can report that, as promised, the rest of our troops in Iraq will come home by the end of the year.”
The fact is, Obama just goes out there and lies through his teeth and imagines you are all too stupid to “get” that he is just a liar. He is the single most brazen liar who has ever attained the office of president.
