    He left on Bush's timetable.
    He sent Biden over to Iraq to try and get the combat troops to stay in Iraq longer but the Iraqi government said please fuck off.
    We still have troops in Iraq.


    I'm confused?

    Please don't read this as me giving thanks to GWB who was just as bad as Obama if not worse.

    Anyway you slice it.....Bush gets ZERO credit for Iraq

    He never should have gotten us in there in the first place
    He abandoned the war on terror to invade
    He misread the political climate after the fall of Saddam
    He misread how the US forces would be treated
    He blundered the occupation
    He cost 5000 American lives

    Well, technically he gets a lot of credit since you can't withdrawal from a place you've never been lol.

    As for there being no troops in Iraq, all I can do is laugh.

    So let's review this thread so far:

    I ask how people give Obama credit for something he didn't do.
    People bad mouth bush and hurl insults in reply instead of answering the question.
    Yep, another day on the internet.

    You certainly are and Wikipedia may help Withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    31 December 2011 U.S. forces complete their withdrawal from Iraq. No U.S. troops in Iraq. All security responsibilities assumed by the Iraqi Armed Forces and other security agencies, including the Ministry of Interior (Iraq). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Forces_–_Iraq
    nope. you can't grasp the concept: US troops were pulled out of Iraq


    ...
