Yesterday, President Obama criticized soldiers who desert their posts.

Let me be more specific. Obama criticized Iraqi soldiers who desert their posts:

Look, the United States has poured a lot of money into these Iraqi security forces, and we devoted a lot of training to Iraqi security forces. The fact that they are not willing to stand and fight and defend their posts against admittedly hardened terrorists, but not terrorists who are overwhelming in numbers, indicates that there’s a problem with morale, there’s a problem in terms of commitment, and ultimately that’s rooted in the political problems that have plagued the country for a very long time.

Kind of ironic, isn’t it? But I’m a little surprised Obama didn’t offer five-for-one swaps for each of the Iraqi deserters as well so he could have completely emptied Gitmo.

    Umpteenth Scandal ( and counting ) and He's still prefacing w/ "Look". With your teachable moments already Mr. pRezuhdunce…

    You just know Rosie O will be there w/ the Body Count as the corpses pile up, the result of INaction. And great way to signal to ISIL/Al Queada we won't be lifting a FINGER. What w/ their Top 5 Iraq should be an armed terrorist training camp by the 4th.

    Win, win, win. Reasserts he ( and He ALONE ) was right about American involvement being a lost cause ( Let The Bodies Hit The Floor! ) Scores MAJOR prog pts. w/ the radical left AND gas prices necessarily skyrocket to $6 bucks a gal. [further] throttling ( what's left ) of our economy putting The Hurt on the smallest independent/self-employed that can least afford it.

    "Look, the United States has poured a lot of money into these Iraqi security forces"

    Freaking money? 4800 American souls lost and Obamouth is blathering about cash? Guess he'll lawyer up and sue the Iraqis for breach of contract and put a lien on the oil wells. That'll fix 'em. What a pathetic little man.

    "Look, the United States has poured a lot of money into these Iraqi security forces, and we devoted a lot of training to Iraqi security forces."

    And then dear leader squandered that money (and the sacrifice of our service members) by withdrawing our forces prematurely based solely on political expedience.

    Dear leader needs to STFU period!
