We should pull our people out and let Iraq solve their own problems. Before we pulled out we trained and armed them that should be the end of our responsibilities. These nations need to start standing up for themselves.
The main issue I see with this is once the religious extremists get enough power there (which they would because they’re taking over cities all over by day), they will look to attack America.

he should protect & defend the Embassy there... from the lawless Jihadist fundamentalist killers he armed & paid to fight against the Assad Armies in Syria
the ISIS went Rogue and is determined to take out the puppet regime of the American installed dictator 'Maliki' who has continually punished & singled out the Sunni population for persecution by that regime...
Obama just getting his deserved 'blow-back'
the USA, (preferably without mr. BHO, the occupant-of-the-Oval-Office)...
should protect the 5,000 Embassy personnel in that mini-city compound and then---> give All Out support to the Kurds & their creation of a 'Kurdistan' country carved out of Iraq...
and forget about Saudi Arabia....just like they have dissed the USA...
imho, Saudi Arabia changed the mission of ISIS from fighting the Syrian Army to a 'kill everything' 'March to Baghdad'
with the purpose to destroy the USA installed, Shia led Iraq government
