Year after year, scandal after scandal – this president always sings the same tune whenever something bad happens. It was somebody else’s fault and poor Obama was the last one to find out.
In his interview with Vice News, he played the part of a character we’ve become all too familiar with – the shocked and bewildered bystander who is perennially having to clean up other peoples’ messes.
Via Gateway Pundit:
“ISIS is a direct outgrowth of Al-Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion. Which is an example of unintended consequences which is why we should generally aim before you shoot,” Obama sniffed.
The problem with that pose of course, is – Obama’s been the president for over six years. It is his government that has allowed ISIS to metastasize in Syria. It was Obama’s CIA who funneled millions of dollars into the hands of al-Qaida, the Taliban, and ISIS. It was Obama who funneled weapons to the Syrian rebel fighters who often turned out to be ISIS fighters. It was Obama himself who called ISIS the Jay-Vee team after they had taken over Fallujah in Iraq. It is nothing short of despicable that he would try to blame President Bush for the creation of his terrorist Frankenstein.
And here’s the really sick part – al Qaeda in Iraq had been routed by US forces in Iraq thanks to Bush’s surge (which President Bystander opposed.) Obama snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory by pulling out all of our troops before Iraq was ready to defend itself.
Back in January, General Keene pointed out on Fox News that al Qaeda had quadruped in number under Obama after being defeated in Iraq under Bush..
Keene spoke of intercepts of emails from the demoralized jihadists in Iraq to Central al Qaeda in Pakistan in late 2008 that said, “Don’t send any more brothers. This war is over. We have lost.”
“And they said it multiple times in different phrases over 3 or 4 message intercepts that we had, Keene continued. “They had admitted that defeat. They were done.”
“We pulled the troops out totally in 2011, and a week after the last troops left….the first bombs started to go off in downtown Baghdad,” Keene said.
Will this president ever take responsibility for his own administration’s actions? Hell, no. He has nothing but contempt for his supporters. As long as they still buy his bullsh*t, he’ll keep shoveling it.
