Obama: Pulling All U.S. Troops
Out of Iraq Was Not ‘My Decision´

Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey

When he was running for re-election in 2012, President Barack Obama repeatedly took credit for ending the war in Iraq and bringing all U.S. troops home from that country. At the White House on Saturday, however, when talking about his decision to use military force against the al-Qaida-related ISIS terrorist group in Iraq, Obama said removing all U.S. troops from Iraq was not “my decision.” “You know I say what I mean and I mean what I say,” Obama said in Hollywood, Florida on Nov. 4, 2012. “I said I´d end the war in Iraq. I ended it.” That statement

So very many reasons to dislike this man, and this constant blame-deflection somehow makes it even worse.

obama sounds like a typical 8 year old boy. That said, those governing Iraq did refuse the status of forces agreement necessary for us to stay.

As I said before if we go at all we should GO BIG

What a disgusting person he is. For him truth is a stranger. He announces he has pulled all troops out of Iraq, and years later he denies doing so. Of course he is speaking to his base, and the only thing they understand is the monthly government check.

Compared to Obama, Jimmy Carter was a saint.

#4, as Cheney said, (paraphrased) "Even a trained Ape can get a SOF agreement." So that means the Otardo admin deliberately insured the SOF wouldn´t be signed. Which makes Otardo culpable - and as he is the President, it was indeed his responsibility and therefor his decision.

Once again Obama displays his inability to negotiate an agreement acceptable to both parties. The US military said a residual force of 20,000 troops would be required to maintain security and stability in Iraq. Obama was willing to allow fewer than 5,000. The Iraqis recognized that Obama was not serious and declined, yet Obama blames THEM?

Obama is an inexperienced, immature incompetent president. He is a very competent community organizer who uses all of the tools of a community organizer to deceive the people of the US.

Why do so many US citizens believe his deception? Use some critical thinking, folks, and reject Obama´s repeated lies!!

Does this idiot truly not realize that, in this day and age, there are tons of video of him declaring that he was going to pull our troops out of Iraq by such-and-such date because they could take care of themselves?!?!?!? He is the president and commander in chief of our military -- so, of course it was his decision!!!!!!!

And, at the time, how many of us with brains (conservatives in other words) declared exactly what would happen when he took this cowardly PC action?!?!?!?

What a vile, evil, cowardly liar we have for a president!!!!!

The idea to desert Iraq was Valerie Jarrett´s, and Zippy was obediently doing as he was told, minding his master. Nothing is ever his fault. He takes no responsibility for anything.

After hearing the latest absurdities from the mouth of the pResident, is the White House Press Corps anywhere near falling on the floor, guffawing hysterically and soiling their skivvies? If not, the Nation needs a new lineup in the press room. I´ll say it again: Obama should be shamed out of office. As Tarzan (Weissmuller version) liked to say while gripping the handle of his sheathed knife: "Go! Ungawa!"

I don´t know whether the SOF agreement was doable, difficult or impossible. What I do know is that he took credit for and campaigned on being the primary force behind ending the war. If the "end" came about due to something over which you had no control - then, Dear Leader you cannot claim to have ended the war. You just can´t have it both ways. Unless of course your supporters and sycophants were just too enamored or ignorant to understand that fact. And, considering that you were reelected - I guess they were...

Obama is a 100% political animal and will say whatever he thinks is to his political benefit at the moment, no matter if it defies reality, as to progressives like him the end justifies the means, he knows that a good portion of his low information voter base is not savvy enough to know when he is being untruthful and will go on to vote for him regardless of his dishonesty.

Remember the first mission of a progressive politician like Obama is to maintain his political power, and he will do anything, even grant an unlawful amnesty to the massive illegal alien population if he thinks it will cause the Republicans to overreact and launch a politically disastrous drive to impeach him, that common sense says would be doomed to failure in the US Senate because of a lack of votes, in order to keep the liberal Democrats in control of the US Senate. It´s the same with Obama´s new "targeted" and limited bombing campaign in Iraq, now he can say that he is a wartime President who cares about people, the homeless refugees over there during the run-up to the November election.

From August 12, 2008:

Obama Sticks to His Iraq Plan


"I intend to end this war," Obama said. "My first day in office I will bring the Joint Chiefs of Staff in, and I will give them a new mission. And that is to end this war. Responsibly, deliberately, but decisively. And I have seen no information that contradicts the notion that we can bring our troops out safely at a pace of one to two brigades per month. And again, that pace translates into having our combat troops out in 16 months´ time."

Would the troops have left if Bush had been President? The fact of the matter is that he didn´t want to reach an agreement with the Iraqi government to keep the troops there. The more likely scenario is that his administration made unreasonable demands and when Iraq wouldn´t--or couldn´t--agree, it gave him the pretext to pull out.

Schoolchildren in Texas may be at risk from Ebola today after five children who attend four different Dallas schools came in close contact with the first patient diagnosed with the deadly virus on U.S. soil. Officials said on Wednesday that the students were in school this week after possibly being in contact with the patient over the weekend when he had become contagious with the deadly virus. The Ebola patient was named today as Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian national in his mid-forties, who had traveled to the U.S. from Liberia on September 20 to visit his family. Scroll down

Less than a third of voters say they want illegal immigrant children to be housed in their home states, and 53 percent said the children shouldn’t be allowed to attend taxpayer-supported public schools. The Supreme Court has ruled that all children, regardless of legal status, are entitled to primary and secondary education in public schools, leaving some districts to face a surge of children with poor or nonexistent English language skills and

Netanyahu, in a briefing in New York with reporters who accompanied him on his trip to the US, said that as Israel’s prime minister he did not understand the criticism of Jews legally buying and moving into property in Jerusalem. “Arabs in Jerusalem freely buy apartments, and nobody says that is forbidden.

Israeli officials have reportedly given final approval to the creation of more than 2,500 homes in East Jerusalem. "This development will only draw condemnation from the international community, distance Israel from even its closest allies [and] poison the atmosphere, not only with the Palestinians but also with the very Arab governments with which Prime Minister Netanyahu said he wanted to build relations," White House press secretary Josh Earnest said at a briefing.

And that is right and proper.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007.

A white Ohio woman is suing a Downers Grove-based sperm bank, alleging that the company mistakenly gave her vials from an African-American donor, a fact that she said has made it difficult for her and her same-sex partner to raise their now 2-year-old daughter in an all-white community. Jennifer Cramblett, of Uniontown, Ohio, alleges in the lawsuit filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court that Midwest Sperm Bank sent her the vials of an African-American donor´s sperm in September 2011 instead of those of a white donor that she and her white partner had ordered.

BOSTON — Many Massachusetts households are going to see their electric bills shoot up 37 percent this winter, a rate increase that some advocates fear will put additional strain on low-income families. State regulators approved the increase for National Grid household customers that would mean an average of $33 per month more for the typical residential customer and would push a typical monthly bill higher than $150. Large-business customers will see even higher increases. National Grid has almost 1.3 million residential and business electric customers in Massachusetts. The new rates take effect in November.
