Notice came yesterday that obama’s Pentagon has doubled the number of advisers in Iraq. As obama continues his self-congratulatory term ending tour, it is good to remember that way, way back in 2007 barack obama swore he would end the war in Iraq.

“Barack Obama will work with military commanders on the ground in Iraq and in consultation with the Iraqi government to end the war safely and responsibly within 16 months.”

And you could take that to the bank

(In researching this I found great amusement in being able to use the hacks at Politifact as yardsticks for measuring obama’s sheer dishonesty- and their fecklessness as well. If you go to the linked Politifact articles you can see the lengths they went to parse obama’s words in order to support him and how quickly they hammer Republicans such as Jeb Bush.)

In 2011 obama declared the Iraq war over:

It was widely accepted that a residual force would be needed to stabilize the country. Seeing his re-election effort ahead, obama wanted none of that. He had a campaign promise to uphold. George Bush warned obama not to abandon Iraq

As you know, things went to hell after the US withdrew. The JV team (ISIS) made the varsity, gained a foothold and grew into a power. The single biggest argument offered by obama for abandoning Iraq has been the lack of a SOFA. Word has done the heavy lifting on that one and it’s available here for you to read. A new SOFA was always anticipated but it would have conflicted with obama’s braggadocio and political future. Politifact says obama wanted to keep 10,000 troops in Iraq.

No he didn’t. He was simply once again playing to the the stupidity of his supporters. He wanted out so he could say it was over as he promised to deliver.

Well, it’s 2017 and where are we?

There are nearly 5000 troops in Iraq.

Without a SOFA.

We have boots on the ground in Syria.

Without a SOFA.

We have operators in Libya

Without a SOFA

We have operators in Tunisia

Without a SOFA

It never was about a SOFA.

obama has expanded wars to several states in the Middle East, dropping more bombs in 2016 than he did in 2015. This comes mostly as a consequence of lying to the “stupid” American voter about ISIS in 2012. Reliance on the stupidity of the average democrat is an obama legacy all by itself.

obama did not end the Iraq war. He did not end the Afghan war.  He made both more protracted because of his ego and his desire to be re-elected. He overthrew a country needlessly and has us mired in military operations all over the Middle East. People do not yet realize the mess he’s created.

obama will undoubtedly continue to throw shade about how great he is and how successful he’s been but when it sobers up history will document one unassailable fact-

obama is SOFA king dishonest it’s mind boggling. And you can take that to the bank.
