    Iraq’s former interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi said Sunday that President Obama was wrong when he claimed the United States left Iraq as a stable and democratic country.

    Appearing on CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS, Allawi said, "It’s neither stable nor democratic, frankly speaking. The terrorists are hitting again very severely. Al Qaeda is fully operational now in Iraq" (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

    When Zakaria asked if Iran is playing an increasing role in the politics of Iraq, Allawi said, “Definitely, we can see this very clearly. We have seen it after the elections immediately when Iran used its influence and dictated what kind of government there should be in Iraq. They put a red-line against me and against the Iraqi here, and unfortunately the United States went along with what Iran desired.”

    Allawi continued, “There are lots of problems now. The whole situation is very tense. Sectarianism is coming back in force in this country. I think Iraq is passing through the most dangerous phase through its history now.”

    “President Obama said very clearly that the United States have left Iraq as a stable and democratic country,” said Allawi. “It’s neither stable nor democratic, frankly speaking. The terrorists are hitting again very severely. Al Qaeda is fully operational now in Iraq. We can see with the various explosions that are claiming the lives of innocent people every day, and we are seeing the un-constitutional behavior of the government.”

    Zakaria asked if Allawi wants the United States back in Iraq.

    Allawi replied, “The United States, frankly, still have a lot of leverage on Iraq. It still have a lot of good will. The United States still have political as well as moral responsibility to help this country to pass through this very difficult phase. As part of the world leadership, the United States must do something to help Iraq.”

    "I am not asking for the American forces to come back," he elaborated, "but for the United States to use its diplomatic and other channels through the strategy agreement between the United States and Iraq to try and bring about sanity to the political process and inclusivity. And I think there should be frank and real discussions with the Prime Minister, between him and between the Administration, to make it very clear that what is happening in Iraq is not acceptable.”

    A few days ago, I stated that Obama had thrown away what he had accomplished in Iraq, and was accused of being a fantasist by one of our liberal members. Now, a former Iraqi Prime Minister has weighed in with the same conclusion. Shall we cue the crickets for the inevitable non-response?

    Little details like that matter not to Obama. As long as he can point out to his anti-War base that he brought us home from that "illegal war" in Iraq who needs the truth.

    I was not wrong. Your penchant for fantasy is amazing to watch. I even like how you contradict one fantasy with another;Obama the Destroyer vs Obama the Appeaser. Mau Mau vs Chamberlain (especially entertaining, that one since it is Anti-Brit and Brit at the same time).

    And your penchant for being a human torch in a field of straw men knows no bounds.

    If he was wrong you'd point it out.

    Instead...you distract.

    Good job fanboy.

    The two aren't mutually exclusive, in fact, they dovetail nicely. Liberals routinely destroy institutions that they don't approve of, while appeasing those who are genuine threats. The DOD is the most obvious example, since it's an executive branch department, and therefore the most subject to unilateral presidential prerogatives. Jimmy Carter spent his entire presidency gutting the defensive capabilities of the US while sucking up to foreign dictators. Bill Clinton's only budget reductions during his two terms were to the DOD, but that didn't stop him from making nice to Castro (what other administration would have raided a private home in the middle of the night in order to kidnap a child and return him to a gulag state?). Obama is simply the latest leftist hack to see the US and our allies as the source of all conflict in the world, and to act accordingly.
