Tyler (KETK) — Where do I begin? Iraq is falling.
What do we expect when the president basically told them a while back the minute we'd be gone. Our allies there have cut and run. Literally peeling off the bullet proof vests and guns and ammo and phones we bought and paid for. Thanks to that, these killers are armed and dangerous because of us.
We were told by this administration because of their political prowess, this would never happen. It was reported two weeks ago, the guy running Iraq was on the phone with President Obama trying to get us to do some air strikes and slow this down. Reportedly, this was not done because the president thought this would look like his Middle East policy was in danger.
It is. And speaking of other messes, Benghazi.
A retired pilot who flew big cargo planes said they were told to stand down that night. He told FOX News they could have been on the ground three hours into the eight hour fight and could have gotten our embassy folks out of there easily. He also said the attackers were using our cell phones from the state department which were captured to orchestrate other mischief.
This was listened to by our state department and military in real time. They knew the attack going on.
Maybe someone will ask Hillary Clinton about that on her book tour. By the way, I hear she was poor.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
