What facts about President Obama’s mishandling of Iraq have been discredited? The situation in Iraq was stable in 2008 when President Bush left office. Three years later President Obama acknowledged this fact when he and his Vice President declared victory in Iraq (and took credit for its stable condition).-Now that Iraq has fallen into chaos due to an uprising by a groups that President Obama dismissed as the “J.V. team” the President’s supporters need to pretend that these attacks were inevitable the moment that Saddam Hussein was removed from power. They do not seem to realize that this defense makes President Obama and Vice-President Biden incompetent blowhards who talk big but are incapable of effective action.
