Fact vs. Fiction 06-17-2016

Senator John McCain [R-AZ] made the following comment Thursday, June 16, 2016, regarding the Orlando massacre:

Republican Sen. John McCain on Thursday blamed President Barack Obama for the deadly shooting in Orlando that killed 49 club goers.

He said the president is “directly responsible for it because” of his “utter failures” in Iraq.

“Barack Obama is directly responsible for it because when he pulled everybody out of Iraq, al Qaeda went to Syria and became ISIS and ISIS is what it is today thanks to Barack Obama’s failures, utter failures by pulling everybody out of Iraq thinking that conflicts end just because we leave,” McCain told reporters on Capitol Hill, according to audio obtained by NBC News.

“So the responsibility for it lies with President Barack Obama and his failed policies,” McCain added.

As usual, when it comes to the majority of our politicians there is little or no truth to his statement. If you are interested in the actual facts on the evolution of the Islamic State you may want to read an article I wrote back in 2014 on the subject. http://wp.me/p18Bs5-1fV
