Obama Owns It

Posted by Warren Peterson on August 10, 2014

Colin Powell was right when he said, “If you break it you own it.” We could have an endless discussion on whether or not we should have broken Saddam’s Iraq. (I think it was the right decision with poor planning on controlling the result.) However, when our current Commander-in-Chief took office in 2009, he inherited from President Bush a relatively stable Iraq. It still needed a residual coalition force (Yes, Bush went to Congress and the UN asking for support to remove Saddam plus he put together a coalition of nations to do the job.) to protect and further stabilize Iraq. Unfortunately, President Obama fulfilled one campaign promise and pulled out of Iraq lock, stock and barrel. We are seeing the result of his decision now and Obama owns it.

    Yes, I believe you are correct; President Obama does own it. Although, I wouldn’t be surprised if President Obama somehow will figure out a way to blame President George W. Bush for that and what is happening in Iraq now.
