Who withdrew all U.S. troops from Iraq, thus allowing ISIS to sweep through the nation while executing, raping, and enslaving people?
In 2011, Barack Obama announced that he was withdrawing all U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of the year and then did so. He then bragged on 10+ occasions that "I ended the war in Iraq." After ISIS swept through the nation executing, raping, and enslaving the Iraqi people, Obama declared that Bush was responsible for withdrawing the troops because he signed an agreement to that effect. However, this agreement was merely a placeholder to signal that the troops would not stay indefinitely, and media reports at the time of the pullout stated that "everyone" expected this date would be extended, but the Obama administration refused to do so. Nevertheless, when Iraq became a humanitarian catastrophe, many media outlets and "fact checkers" parroted Obama's false claim while ignoring the actual facts of the matter. Likewise, Biden stated on May 14, 2021, "I have concluded that it's time to end America's longest war." Now Biden's surrogates are blaming Trump for the ensuing catastrophe.
