This week, Donald Trump said Obama and Hillary founded ISIS.
The ISIS predecessor had been a part of al Qaeda in Iraq that was founded by al-Zarqawi, who was killed during George W. Bush's second term. It had been effectively defeated as a result of Bush's surge, a plan Senators Obama and Clinton both opposed. Bin Laden admitted the defeat on an audio tape to the people of Iraq.
On Jan. 20, 2009, when Obama took office, there was no serious threat posed by any organized ISIS fighting force. That would all change soon enough.
Deciding to withdraw all U. S. troops from Iraq by 2011, Obama ignored military advice to leave a 23,000 troop contingency. Hillary was always on board with the exit plan. Most think the vacuum left by the departure was filled by what would become ISIS, and that Trump is right.
But there is much more to it. What would later become known as ISIS (starting out in Syria) had a transformation and fundamental change from its original weaker incarnations. What caused the difference? The Arab Spring and the fact that Barrack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton backed the Arab Spring pushed on by the liberal media. The result was the overturning of regimes friendly to us to Islamists taking over, causing chaos, terror and death. Hardest hit were thousands of innocent Christians.
Hillary was instrumental in getting the Libyan regime's leader, Gaddafi, ousted and murdered. This came several years after Gaddafi swore off terrorism and abandoned plans to develop weapons and mass destruction. In other words, while Gaddafi wasn’t our friend, he was sure trying to be friendly after watching American troops sweep through Afghanistan and Iraq.
With Gaddafi out of the way, chaos eventually took over and ISIS is now firmly entrenched in Libya. But first, Hillary Clinton with the help of her good friend, Ambassador Stephens put in place, scooped up the Libyan weapons and shipped them to Syrians via Turkey. That is why Ambassador Stevens was there – to oversee the shipments. But that will all come out on e-mails one of these days.
Problem is, many of those weapons ended up in the hands of ISIS in Syria. So we've armed ISIS, we've given billions to Iran and Iran was the maker of many IEDs that killed or maimed our own military over the years.
Has anyone reading this ever asked themselves what the Annex was there for in Benghazi? It housed the weapons they were running to Syria. Under oath, Hillary Clinton responded to Rep. Trey Gowdy she knew nothing about it, but it now appears she did. That lie, when it is proven, should give her five years in the pen.
Julian Assange (Wikileaks) has revealed Hillary putting weapons in the hands of Syrian Jihadists and that Centcom cooked the books, manipulating intelligence to look like we were doing well in knocking out ISIS.
We weren't and that lie alone put our troops at risk. God only knows how many of our troops have died from this inept administration.
General George Patton said: There is only one tactical principle which is not subject to change. It is to use the means at hand to inflict the maximum amount of wounds, death and destruction on the enemy in the minimum amount of time.
Vote for Donald Trump. He got this one right and I believe he will do exactly what George Patton stated. He will untie the hands of our military that Obama has kept bound all these years so they can do the job that needs doing. Hopefully, an October surprise will put Hillary Clinton behind bars where she belongs.
