    If you are unaware, Katrina Pierson is a spokeswoman for Donald Trump. She might be the least educated political spokesperson we've ever seen. That she is actually employed, defies explanation. Her two most unbelievable assertions are:

    1. She claimed during a CNN interview that President Obama started the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan (um, that was started by President Bush in 2001)

    2. She claimed that President Obama and Hillary Clinton were responsible for the death of Humayun Khan in 2004 during the Iraq War by changing the rules of engagement. This occurred 5 years before either of them was in office.

    What do you make of these statements?

      Look at Donald Trump, what other sort of 'advisers' would you expect him to have?

      I haveto pinch myself to be reminded that this is a not a situation comedy but the real thing...

      Is the whole campaign "The Rise of Stupid" or "The Rise of the Misinformed" or "The Rise of the Uneducated"? It really is like an alternate universe where Obama has been President since 2000 and is responsible for every bad thing that's ever happened. I think if Trump said that Obama was the first 3-term President, his followers would believe it.

    Leftist's are so hilarious ,  remember when G.W.Bush was labeled the stupidest  president ever by them ?   And then Ronald Reagan ,   One day I suppose the left might gain the ability to  debate the  policies without  resorting to the sophomoric  labeling  , No.........I think not   ........

      So, pointing out that a Trump surrogate went on national TV and spouted hilariously inaccurate nonsense that is easily disproved is"sophomoric"?

      And you wonder why we laugh at Trump and his supporters. We cannot let that ignorant bloviator and his equally fact-challenged minions anywhere near the White House.

        While we quietly sweep common theft and a complete disregard for rules and laws into the corner.  Even gross abuse of political power in an election process.

        They all pale alongside bloviating and empty political rhetoric, don't they?

            It truly is.  How much of that is because the man in the street has become so dependent on the politicians to do and provide for everything he needs?  We don't even need to think anymore - some faceless bureaucrat deep in the bowels of the political part of choice will do it for us.

              Well, some people don't think anymore, but it's ridiculous to blame that on politicians or anyone except the individual who chooses to be led by the nose.

      Actually, you are hilarious. You don't answer any question. This woman came on national television and came up with a new history of the United States. And Trump's followers will use it to vilify Obama and Clinton. We'll be hearing for the next ten years how Obama started the Iraq War. And then Trump tweets that we should limit freedom of the press because they are telling lies about him. This has nothing to do with being on the left. We aren't discussing policy. We're discussing a Trump spokeswoman rewriting American history.

        Oh well yes !   You mean like Hillary re-writing her helicopter landing in the Bosnian war zone ?

          So you believe Obama started the war in Aghanistan.

            The amazing thing is - that is how stupid Trump's supporters are. She can say something like that and they believe it.

              I am sure we can agree - Trump is leading with the uneducated.

    "Obama's Wars"  is a book by Bob Woodward

    You can read a part of the book here:
    https://books.google.com/books/about/Ob … mp;f=false
    Pages 93 to 446 are not shown. 

    I saw several videos on YouTube about Obama's Wars.
    Interesting material!

    "Obama’s single largest, longest, and costliest foreign policy initiative: the war in Afghanistan."
    Obama’s Failed Legacy in Afghanistan
    http://www.the-american-interest.com/20 … ghanistan/

    Afghanistan, the third-largest military operation since Vietnam, had definitively become Obama’s war.

      Of course it has become his war, he inherited it. He didn't start it. I actually think Donald Trump had the right idea about Iraq - get the hell out. But now he says that Obama should have stayed there with more troops. I don't think anyone knows what the hell they're doing in the Middle East.

        People seem to forget that Obama is operating a war that the American people have the stomach for. We don't have the stomach for ground troops and continued American deaths. That's why George W. Bush negotiated our withdrawal from Iraq.

        Bush never should have gone in (Hillary voted for the war). The Bushes and the Clintons are like family, they love each other.  Barbara Bush said in an interview that she loves Bill (Clinton). 

        President Bush warns of the dangers of pulling out of Iraq to early.
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rg5wexZUkSc
        (Like he knew how it was going to go and was concerned.  Yawn!)

        Obama should never have just pulled out of Iraq, he had to know it would create a vacuum for terrorists. It has been tragic,to say the least, so I don't start weeping.  It destabilize the Middle East.

        Trump was against going into war in Iraq to begin with and knew what would happen if Obama pulled out. I thought everyone knew that.

          Trump was not against the war. He is on audio supporting the war (not that it matter since he wasn't in politics, so it's kind of irrelevant). He's also on tape supporting a complete withdrawal, yet now he's blaming Obama for not having enough troops.

          Here's his support:

          Here's more:

            And your statement that Obama never should have pulled out of Iraq may or may not be true (in the sense that not pulling out would have resulted in a better Iraq). He had no choice. That was a negotiated settlement. We were bound by treaty to withdraw. It was negotiated under George W. Bush. That said, I don't blame Bush for that negotiation. The American people did not have the stomach to continue that fight. No politician could continue to get American troops killed in Iraq and survive.
