Judge Jeanine Pirro let Obama have it on Saturday night’s installment of Justice for squandering all of the hard fought and won gains in Iraq, and endangering American lives in the process.
“You know me,” Pirro said, “most of the time, I’m fearless. I’ve spent most my life, fighting, investigating, prosecuting and sentencing the worst of the worst. But tonight, I’m worried.”
“Our president has literally replenished the enemy at a time of war,” she said.
She had on Senator John McCain and and retired general Ralph McInerny to discuss Obama’s latest “utter and total failure”.
Also a guest on Saturday’s show, Ambassador to Iraq under GW Bush, James Jeffrey.

Retired Staff Sergeant Johnny “Joey” Jones served in Iraq from 2007 to 2008. In 2010, he deployed to Afghanistan to help disarm the Taliban’s IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices). However, when Jones stepped on an IED his tour was cut short. He had lost both of his legs in the incident.
On Friday, Jones was a guest on Fox News’ The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson to discuss the recent turmoil in Iraq. Carlson began by asking him if he thought that the sacrifices Iraq War veterans made were in vain. Jones responded:
“When we were in Iraq, and I had the opportunity to tell the president this, every town that I was in, we liberated people, we empowered them, we didn’t conquer or destroy them. And we have to have the commitment there to finish the job.”…
“Baghdad is a symbol of freedom for our country as much as Iraq. We literally spent over a decade there liberating people from a tyrannical government. This Commander-In-Chief has an opportunity to have the courage to honor a commitment that we made when we turned their world upside down by taking out Saddam and their regime.”
Meanwhile in a different universe, two dimwits trying to pass themselves off as intellectuals, fret about “gender equity” issues in the Middle East and military industrial complex wanting to be in a “perpetual state of war.”
Via Long War Journal:
The lightning advance of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham and its allies from Mosul to the outskirts of Samarra, as well as its capture of several towns in eastern Diyala, all over the course of several days, appears to be part of a greater strategy to surround the capital of Baghdad before laying siege to it. This plan, to take over the “belt” region outside of Baghdad and cut off the capital, appears to be the same strategy used by the ISIS’ predecessor back in 2006.
The 2006 plan, which was drawn up by the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), the forerunner of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham (ISIS), was discovered after the US found a crude map on the body of Abu Musab al Zarqawi, al Qaeda in Iraq’s leader who was killed by US forces in Baqubah in June 2006. The “Baghdad belts” map was released by Multinational Forces-Iraq during its offensive to liberate vast areas under al Qaeda/ISI control in 2007 and 2008.
Meanwhile in a different universe, two dimwits trying to pass themselves off as intellectuals, worry about “gender equity” issues in the Middle East and the military industrial complex and Republicans wanting to be in a “perpetual state of war.”
Via Washington Free Beacon, I swear this is not a parody:
“We don’t want to be nasty and vicious here, but are the Republicans interested in a perpetual state of war?” he asked. “Because it seems like they are always, with this chest-pumping, patriarchal character, trying to thrust us [into one.]“
