Uh, when did either Bush or Obama become President of Iraq, and well, Afghanistan? It IS and has been Iraq’s responsibility to govern their country and remain autonomous. That MALAKI AND BUSH called for the pullout, at Malaki’s insistance, perhaps THAT was the problem? Oh,right it was Chalabi, Malaki, and the Bush administration that threw all the Iraqi Army folks out, ended the police force, drove out all Baathists (even those token ones who went along to stay alive under Saddam), Sunnis, doctors, technicians, and educated folks out of Iraq. That led the way to Al Qaeda gains, ISIL, and a flood of expatriots who are no longer their to build their own country.
