This would not have happened if Obama had left troops in Iraq. But then he says nope..wasnt his decision. Really? But it was his decision. He didnt want ANY troops in Iraq..and he even said so in the 2012 Pres debates..."“What I would not have done is left 10,000 troops in Iraq that would tie us down. That certainly would not help us in the Middle East."...
