President Obama Ends the Iraq War

President Obama ends the Iraq War by declaring that all troops will be brought home by the end of the year. He made this a campaign promise during the 2008 election. The Iraq War was probably the worst foreign policy mistake in the history of this country. We went in because President George W. Bush preached to us about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction. None existed. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Iraq did not attack the United States. Hundreds of thousands of lives lost on both sides. Billions of dollars wasted. What a disaster.

Chris Matthews talks about it with two panelists on the October 21, 2011, Hardball. Former congressman Patrick Murphy gets it right. Obama got our greatest enemy, Bin Laden. Helped to eliminate Libyan dictator Qaddafi. And got us out of Iraq. Murphy complains that Republicans give no credit to Obama. Amen. Below is the video.
