Oh, heck...here it is for you, Patrick.
CENTCOM commander Gen. David Petraeus, supported by Defence Secretary Robert Gates, tried to convince President Barack Obama that he had to back down from his campaign pledge to withdraw all U.S. combat troops from Iraq within 16 months at an Oval Office meeting Jan. 21.
But Obama informed Gates, Petraeus and Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen that he wasn't convinced and that he wanted Gates and the military leaders to come back quickly with a detailed 16-month plan, according to two sources who have talked with participants in the meeting.
Obama's decision to override Petraeus's recommendation has not ended the conflict between the president and senior military officers over troop withdrawal, however. There are indications that Petraeus and his allies in the military and the Pentagon, including Gen. Ray Odierno, now the top commander in Iraq, have already begun to try to pressure Obama to change his withdrawal policy.

So like I said, the generals on the ground on both sides wanted residual troops to remain in Iraq.
But we have a rogue president. And Iraq has fallen.
The Iraqi people didn't want us there and neither did the majority of the American people. You keep ignoring the fact that it was the Bush administration that set up this situation.

You must be the liar or ignorant of what you speak. The taped interview has Hillary in her own voice telling the story of this case and she laughs throughout the interview. It's shocking and it's creepy. I worked just outside of the U of A and I never knew this tape existed all these years.

Those of us who knew the Clinton's personally didn't know this tape existed until the "Beacon" uncovered the case.

At least some are fighting this tyrannical government:

Rep. Robert Hurt, whose district includes Lawrenceville and pressed the Obama administration to listen to residents’ concerns, said that he was “thankful that HHS has made the right decision.”

“However, it must be said that the manner in which HHS attempted to impose its plan on our community without any meaningful input is a painful reminder of just how disconnected Washington has become from the people it is supposed to represent — a Washington that always seems to be wiser and know better than its local elected leaders and its citizens,” said Mr. Hurt, a Republican.

He added:“It is impossible to ignore the tremendous frustration expressed last night by the overwhelming majority of decent and law-abiding citizens about the current state of U.S. immigration policy. What we are seeing on our southern U.S. border is an undeniable crisis, and it is a crisis that has been perpetrated and perpetuated by the federal government. This administration’s reckless refusal to secure our borders and enforce the laws of the United States virtually begs the poor and the desperate from foreign countries to cross our borders illegally. I share the frustration of my constituents and hope that this crisis will be a catalyst for a renewed effort at achieving an immigration policy that is rooted in the rule of law.”

Scrapping the plan to house about 500 older youths at the college was a major setback for the administration, which is scrambling to find a community that will accept the children. Lawrenceville was the second community to reject the children this month.

Plans to house some of the children at an empty office complex in Baltimore were dropped after the city’s Democratic mayor and Maryland’s two Democratic senators objected as soon as the details were announced.

The Lawrenceville project got off to a bad start last week when town and county officials learned of it only after administration officials signed a lease with St. Paul’s College, a historic black university that closed last year after losing its accreditation.

The children were supposed to have arrived Thursday. Instead, HHS officials struggled to persuade a crowd of angry residents that the bringing the children to Lawrenceville would create jobs, boost the economy and provide a desperately needed humanitarian service.

You stupid mofo, the link clearly states "With the introduction of DNA testing in the late 1970s and 1980s, scientists saw the powerful tool this process was for identification and determination of biological relationships. Thanks to the advent of DNA testing, we can now determine the identity of individuals and their relatives with exceptional accuracy and conclusiveness".

Don't think he said that. She laughed through an interview TEN YEARS later when she was 37-years old. She is a real champion of women. She is a sleezy, two-bit attorney who used to sell BJs when visiting prisoners in prison. Is that where you met her. OH, since you know the story and lied anyway, you're a two bit liar.

Hey stupid. Don't they tell you anything on MSNBC. Don't you read all about it on Mother F-ing Jones, or the Puffington Post? If one Christian killed one Muslim vermin, it would be in the leftist media 24/7 for 3-months. Real Dave, I'll be looking hard for you when the left decides to come out and play.

This Hillary laughing over 40 years ago phony scandal shows how frightened Republicans are of her. They realize that in 2016 Republicans can't run on their accomplishments or even their proposals, they have neither.

Bush brought us back - and the rest of the world - from the brink of an economic fallout after 9/11.
He disbanded, killed and captured many of the top thugs responsible for 9/11 and killed or captured many more of them under their command.
He began the hunt for bin Laden in 2003 when Obama was still a corrupt Illinois Senator voting to deny botched abortion babies medical attention.
If you want to criticize Bush for something to make yourself feel better, he misjudged the resurgent reaction in Iraq or that al Qaeda would claim it the frontlines. However, there are no crystal balls in the Oval Office. Just ask Obama. He just flies by the seat of his pants.
And Democrats controlled Congress AND the purse strings two years prior to the economic collapse. FYI....not that you care about these little details.
HEY STUPID! Who ignored warnings of an imminent attack on American soil and let it happen because he was just too lazy to leave his faux ranch and at least try to prevent the attack on 9/11?
Bush's attempts to capture Bin Laden were half hearted at best. Let's face it he was much more valuable to the Bush administration as a bogeyman to be trotted out when the public needed to be distracted.
No you damned liar, Obama didn't vote to deny babies who were born alive medical care, there were already laws on the books requiring that. That bill, which Obama did vote against, would have required doctors to resuscitate an aborted fetus if legislators felt it had any chance of viability. In interviews with a range of media outlets, Obama expressed that he feared the bill would undermine Roe v Wade by defining any fetus as a human with human rights and claimed it could be used to take down any abortion rights legislation that anti-choice activists didn’t like.
Obama was, however,“fully in support” of a federal bill that provided the same protection viable fetuses while also including protections for Roe v Wade.
Anyone with half a brain could have predicted what eventually happened in Iraq stupid! The majority of Iraqis are Shiites just like Iran. Iran knew this and played Bush like a fiddle and he went right along giving the Iranians the upper hand in the region. Any settlement of the current crisis in Iraq is going to mean involving the Iranians.
The Democrats took control of Congress the same year that the recession hit Carol, not two years prior. You're either abysmally ignorant or an incredibly incompetent liar. It was the GOP who were in charge when the housing bubble expanded out of control and it was they who refused any regulation or oversight over the mortgage backed securities and debt default swap markets.
You're an idiot Carol; you always have been and always will be!

But when someone goes out of their way to prove you wrong and you insist on not educating yourself and refuse to acknowledge what has been proven and deliberately ignore it, stupidity becomes another symptom of your liberal weakness.
Because there's nothing Obama could do that would be bad enough in your eyes to shake this bizarre starry-eyed love affair that you have with him.
So that would make you stupid and weak - and somewhat dangerous. Blind loyalty on the part of anyone who can see no wrong in the most devious of power hungry and rogue leaders never has a good ending.
Look who's talking dimwit! You constantly defend Bush who was too damned lazy or simply unwilling to do anything after he was warned of an imminent attack on US soil. Who lied to Congress about Iraq's WMD to justify a disastrous military adventure and ultimately destabilized the entire region and put Iran in the catbirds seat.
You're an idiot Carol; you always have been and always will be!
