    What's disgraceful is that these two were part of the machine that got Obama elected (twice), so they're 5 years too late in their "revelation."

    NBC's Todd, Mitchell Sour On Obama Over Iraq Excuses: "A Farce!"

    Top NBC reporters Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell turned on President Obama over his excuses for Iraq’s unravelling on Sunday, with Todd claiming he never tried to secure a 2011 troop agreement with the Iraqi government and Mitchell calling the White House’s bad intelligence excuse "a farce."

    The pair unloaded on the Obama administration during Sunday's "Meet the Press," calling it aimless and needling its excuses for the sudden surge of ultra-violent jihadis in northern Iraq

    I agree with Obama on Iraq; let Saudi, Turkey and Egypt deal with it, we've given them hundreds of billions $$ of weapons over the decades - let them bomb.

    the US should stay out of the Middle East, but we won't, because there's OIL

    hell Exxon is still going forward with their deal with the Russians to drill in the Artic despite the sanctions

    all about the oil

    The whole attack on Iraq was seriously flawed, and the subsequent mess was well established by 2008.

    Western politicians and the media having been trying to avoid the obvious truth since then, though the thoughtful and perceptive saw this. They were howled down in the triumphalism and jingoism of the times.

    Obama inherited a failed state; one of the biggest failures of 'big government', one of Bush`s favourite bad guys. I doubt any western government or politician could have turned it around.
