Sen. Lindsey Graham, RS.C., dismissed a question from CNN anchor Dana Bash during a conversation about violence in the Middle East as "a lot of bull ***".
At a Sunday performance "State of the Union" In the morning, Bash Graham asked if President Trump would be to blame if the terrorist group of the Islamic State became more powerful following the withdrawal of Syria's US troops. Graham replied that former President Barack Obama should blame for leaving Iraq in 2011.
"Everything we have to do today falls on Obama's watch. He is the one who has withdrawn from Iraq, "Graham said.
Bash disagreed." But he did it because there was an agreement on the status of the armed forces in Iraq, right? "
No, that's a bunch of cops Pardon my French That's a complete lie That's an absolute, absolute lie."
Bash's eyes widened in surprise, "That did not happen?"  Graham recalled that he had hoped that Obama's decision to remove troops from Iraq would be correct, but he feared that the decision would "come back to persecute us."
Obama's 2012 presidential election campaign boasted that "the mission in Iraq, because the commander-in-chief had this field and had fulfilled a campaign promise, and Republican critics such as Graham argued that retreating troops would create a power vacuum that could be filled by radical forces (Liberals generally have the former President George W. Bush blamed for the destabilization of the Middle East in 2003 for the invasion of Iraq.)
"The IS came through un their withdrawal from Iraq. The caliphate was established in Syria because Obama was sitting on the sideline and watching the place being dismembered, "he said.
Despite what Bash mentioned, Obama suspended the agreement on the status of armed forces adopted by his predecessor 2008. Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki negotiated the agreement and arrested 31 December 2011 to remove US troops from Iraq.

Although he withdrew from Syria kr he said he was "very satisfied" with the Trump administration and had more access to the president than ever before. He hopes Trump will meet with his generals and rethink this decision.
"Obama got a bad hand and he has to play better than him. Holding the troops in Iraq is great, "he said.
