In a better America, this would be enough to remove Kristol from all news media forever:
William Kristol: We were right to fight in Iraq
William Kristol 8:18 p.m. EDT May 20, 2015
Obama threw away hard-earned gains.


We were right to invade Iraq in 2003 to remove Saddam Hussein, and to complete the job we should have finished in 1991.

Even with the absence of caches of weapons of mass destruction, and the mistakes we made in failing to send enough troops at first and to provide security from the beginning for the Iraqi people, we were right to persevere through several difficult years. We were able to bring the war to a reasonably successful conclusion in 2008.

Obama played into their hands saying the troops had left Iraq a proud and stable democracy. That was shortly before ISIS took over large swaths of it, and Iraq's groups were never
politically harmonized-a quality the "surge" required to have been a success.
But Obama having lied so, could now be accused by the neocons for leaving too soon and throwing away the "victory."
