The News world is abuzz over the criticism former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has offered against Hillary Clinton. The two, though both in the midst of tight election primary campaigns, have attempted to target the other more than their respective, same-party opponents.
Bush tied the rise of the militant Sunni group, which now occupies a large portion of Iraq, Syria and other Middle Eastern countries, to the departure of U.S. forces from Iraq in 2011.
“Rushing away from danger can be every bit as unwise as rushing into danger, and the costs have been grievous,” said the Republican presidential hopeful.
Washing her hands of Iraq, Secretary Clinton went on the support the Libyan Rebels is their fight against Muammar Gadhafi. Many of the fighters – and most of their weapons – would later fall into the hands of radical Sunni groups like al Qaeda and what would eventually become the Islamic State.
“So eager to be the history-makers, they failed to be the peacemakers,” Bush said.
While Hillary and the rest of the misguided Obama administration freely funded any rebel group aiming to topple the Libyan government, their hands off, half hearted policy allowed those weapons to go directly to the most dangerous, fanatical groups in the area.
Hillary Clinton visited a record amount of countries during her short term as Secretary of State. After the amount of lives, money and energy expelled by America to liberate Iraq, Clinton visited just one time. The lack of attention undoubtedly opened the door for radicals to burn down the county – destroying the gains so many Americans died to achieve.
