FORMER F.B.I. DIRECTOR JIMMY COMEY CORN AND I DON'T CARE TESTIFIED BEFORE CONGRESS TODAY AND REVEALED THERE'S REALLY NO STORY HE HAS TO TELL.
HE DID, HOWEVER, REVEAL THAT DONALD TRUMP CAUSED HIM TO LEAK.
WHAT CAN HE SAY, THE PENIS WANTS WHAT THE PENIS WANTS.
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Do you fear yet for Iraq's future?
Because you should.
A message has been sent.
Just like one was sent after Nouri al-Maliki lost the 2010 election but wouldn't step down and Barack Obama, then-US president, went around the Iraqi people to give Nouri a second term via The Erbil Agreement.
Within two years, Barack had turned on Nouri.
After Barack won the 2012 election, Nouri called to congratulate him and Barack refused to take the call, palming it off instead on Joe Biden.
It would be two more years (2014) before Barack would publicly rebuke Nouri.
Those millions Barack's going to get for his superficial tract on his life in the White House should warrant a little honesty on Iraq and especially on Nouri.
By 2010, Nouri's use of torture and secret prisons were well known.
But Barack chose to give him a second term.
ISIS would most likely never have gotten a foothold in Iraq were it not for Nouri's second term.
(Nouri's responsible for the rise of ISIS but I say "most likely" because Nouuri's far from the only despot in Iraq and someone similar to Nouri could have also precipitated the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq.)
When Barack's door step is finally released, Nouri al-Maliki should figure prominently in it.
As should Barack's sleight of hand with regards to the Iraq War.
A bunch of silly fools enlisted into The Cult of St. Barack.
They believed he'd end the Iraq War.
That's on them.
Barack didn't end it.
And they're still in denial.
I can understand being temporarily fooled.
Elaine and I met him when he was trying to get into the US Senate.
And the hype laid down had us both excited.
But all he had to do was say that the US was already in Iraq and blah blah blah for us to realize he wasn't anti-war and that embarrassing and sparsely attended 'big' speech of 2002 didn't matter.
If Barack was honest about ending the Iraq War, I would have supported his Senate run.
If he were honest, I would have turned this site, in 2007 and 2008, over to non-stop Barack -- one long running infomercial.
But he was a liar.
And it's amazing that eight years later, as the Iraq War continues, his Cult still can't get honest.
And I've been kind enough. Stop pretending you couldn't have known.
