Interesting spin since Obama has stated multiple times now that Al Qaeda has been defeated.
Besides what's going on inside Iraq is not linked to Al Qaeda.. Apparently an Islamic film released on youtube is to blame.

"ISIS Threatens to Invade Jordan, 'Slaughter' King Abdullah"

guess i was wrong,,
quote " The recent victories in Iraq and Syria by the terrorists of ISIS -- said to be an offshoot of al-Qaeda -- have emboldened the group and its followers throughout the Middle East. Now the terrorists are planning to move their jihad not only to Jordan, but also to the Gaza Strip, Sinai and Lebanon.
Failure to act will result in the establishment in the Middle East of a dangerous extremist Islamic empire that will pose a threat to American and Western interests.
"The danger is getting closer to our bedrooms." — Oraib al-Rantawi, Jordanian political analyst"
ok so now Jordan is involved,, along with Turkey.
Charlie Wilson's War is a 2007 American biographical-drama film, recounting the true story of U.S. Congressman Charlie Wilson who partnered with CIA operative Gust Avrakotos to launch Operation Cyclone, a program to organize and support the Afghan mujahideen during the Soviet war in Afghanistan
Sure other people were complicit with the decent of Iraq, after the invasion.
Bush and his fellows COMMITED THE ORIGINAL SIN OF THE WAR ON A COUNTRY THAT HAD NADA TO DO WITH 911 AND CONCOCTED BLATANT LIES TO GET US IN THE WAR.
The fact remains the congress didn’t do the war, Bush and his henchmen did.
