Blames Obama for current Iraq problems

18 May, 2015

Graham says that he does not think the Iraq war was a mistake, but blames Obama for the current difficulties in Iraq due to leaving too soon without a strategy to further help Iraqi development.

At the end of the day I blame President Obama for the mess in Iraq and Syria not President Bush. . . The Iraqi people were making progress on the security front, the economic front and the political front, that is an undeniable fact. Leaving Iraq too soon, not leaving a residual force has resulted in what you see today.
