2007 Video Emerges Of Trump Saying U.S. Should Cut And Run From Iraq Then Blames President Bush For The Terrorists (ISIS) There! (VIDEO)

As you know over the last three days Donald Trump has been calling both President Obama and Hillary Clinton the "Founders Of ISIS". He has explained on several right wing news shows that it was because of Obama and Clinton's choice to pull all the U.S. Troops out of Iraq in 2011 leaving the power vacuum that enabling ISIS to magically form.

Now never mind that ISIS is actually Al-Qaeda and has been around since 2003 and ISIS is actually the pseudonym for Al-Qaeda when it invaded Syria... let's instead examine Trump's accusation.

First of all neither Obama or Clinton had anything to do with the troops leaving Iraq in 2011. It was, in fact, George W. Bush and his administration that drew up the timetable for when the U.S. troops pulled out of the country in what was called the "U.S.-Iraq Status Of Forces Agreement". The Bush administration agreed to the pact with the then Iraqi government so U.S. forces wouldn't be subject to Iraqi criminal law and signed on the dotted line in 2008.

In exchange for immunity for the U.S. Troops Bush agreed all U.S. combat forces would be completely out of Iraq by December 31, 2011. This in effect let Bush weasel his way out of implementing the deal thus delegating the clean-up to President Obama.

Despite Bush's agreement, in June of 2011, President Obama held meetings with Iraq's Prime Minister Maliki and told him that the U.S. was prepared to leave up to 10,000 soldiers to continue training and equipping the Iraqi Security Forces. Maliki however refused.

So As we can see President Obama and Hillary Clinton had zero to do with creating a power vacuum and or "founding" ISIS.

But let's for the sake of argument say that the troops leaving did have something to do with the rise of ISIS as Donald Trump asserts. Wouldn't it be very damaging to his argument that President Obama and Hillary Clinton should have known better than to withdraw all the U.S. troops if there were a video of Donald calling for just that!

Plus, what if in that very same video Trump not only blamed President George W. Bush, but also threw Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and Secretary Of State Condoleezza Rice under the bus for all the problems that that arose from their "catastrophe" of a war INCLUDING THE TERRORISTS (aka ISIS) THERE!!!!!!!?

I guess if that video existed it would look exactly like this... (2:22 for the money shot!)...

Watch until the end when he brings up Bush's emails!!!!! You can't make this shit up.
