Megyn Kelly Grills Jen Psaki over Whether Obama Policy Made Iraq Worse

Published on Oct 2, 2014 by HotNews

Megyn Kelly faced off with State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki tonight over claims by former Obama Cabinet official Leon Panetta that withdrawing troops from Iraq may have caused the current chaos going on in that country. Kelly pressed Psaki on exactly why President Obama didn’t want to leave a residual force of several thousand troops behind in Iraq.

Psaki insisted that these accounts of what happened three years ago were not based on facts, arguing that the U.S. couldn’t simply force all those troops on a sovereign nation, and troops didn’t have the protections they needed.

Psaki also told Kelly that even if there was a residual force, “it would not have prevented” what’s occurred in Iraq over the past few months. Kelly just kept pressing her on why Obama isn’t accepting responsibility for this decision, when during a 2012 debate, he denied wanting a status of forces agreement.
