We're Building....

We’re leaving behind a sovereign, stable, and self-reliant Iraq with a representative government that was elected by its people. We’re building a new partnership between our nations. And we are ending a war, not with a final battle, but with a final march toward home. This is an extraordinary achievement, nearly nine years in the making.

Obama fled Iraq - and the terrorists moved in

Barack Obama pulled out the last US forces in Iraq in December 2011 and declared the war had been won:

UKRAINE has failed to reach a breakthrough with Moscow in talks to avert a Russian gas cut that would hit Europe and add further urgency to the worst East-West crisis since the Cold War.

The US failure wasn’t going into Iraq but leaving it

This is an issue of national security of the United States in the Middle East. What we’re seeing now, al Qaeda has control of the largest city it has ever controlled in its history. It has control of the largest area of territory—from the outskirts of Aleppo in the west to Mosul in the east—than it ever has in its history. 

This is an enormous threat and it is a direct result of the two decisions that Obama made. Leaving Iraq, he says he ended the war in Iraq. No. David Petraeus ended the war in Iraq. He defeated al Qaeda and ended the civil war. Obama threw away the fruits of victory as General [Buck] McKeon said when he did not negotiate a status of forces agreement, which he argues in Afghanistan is necessary as a way to retain our gains and to redeem our sacrifices… 

At the same time, you have an attack on Karachi, the largest city in Pakistan, an attack on the airport. You’ve got—and that is a country with nuclear weapons. The al Qaeda is arguably now the strongest it has ever been and it’s a result of Obama’s policies.
