Bamboozled Again

The video above is Barack Obama in December of 2011 declaring the mission in Iraq accomplished -- in his words, a "success." According to the president, we were leaving behind an Iraq that was "stable and self-reliant."
Except we weren't, and Obama knew it and so did anyone else paying attention.
Oh, the war in Iraq was won, but it wouldn’t stay won without an American presence.
Regardless, the President bugged out of Iraq without an all-important status of forces agreement. In other words, like the stabilizing troops we still have in Japan, Germany, and South Korea -- we left no one in Iraq.
