Shameless liars. Robert Gibbs today tried to take credit for the success in Iraq even though both Biden* and Obama voted against the successful surge that stabilized the country. That’s not all. Biden caused rioting and protests when he pushed legislation to divide Iraq into three countries. Barack Obama told supporters in 2007 that, “Preventing a potential genocide in Iraq isn’t a good enough reason to keep U.S. forces there.”
These people are absolutely shameless:
What is worse is that there is likely not a Republican in Congress who will stand up and correct this horrible lie. And, shame on them for remaining silent and sitting on their hands.
Hat Tip Tom R.
