Mosul Falls to Jihad: Another Foreign Policy “Victory” for The One?

As the traitorous surrender of American sovereignty, culture and soil to juvenile invaders from south of our borders continues under Barack Obama’s insane “immigration policy,” the disastrous effects of the Obama Presidency were also being realized 8,000 miles away.

As reported:

Islamic militants overran parts of Iraq's second-largest city of Mosul on Tuesday, driving security forces from their posts and seizing the provincial government headquarters, security bases and other key buildings.
Gunmen cruised through neighborhoods, waving black banners while residents fled.
Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki pressed parliament to declare a state of emergency.
The fight for Mosul was a heavy defeat in Baghdad's battle against a widening insurgency by a breakaway al Qaeda group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which has been trying - with some success - to seize territory both in Iraq and neighboring Syria.

Earlier this year, the group captured another Iraqi city, Fallujah, in the west of the country, and government forces have been unable to take it back after months of fighting. 
 
The far larger Mosul is an even more strategic prize. The city and surrounding Ninevah province are a major export route for Iraqi oil and a gateway to Syria.”

Lest we forget, nearly 4,500 American lives were lost in Iraq.

Sadly, Obama’s subsequent actions  render those precious American lives meaningless exercises in futility as America’s brilliant community organizer pivoted away from the “dumb” war that is now consuming the middle east.

Another foreign policy “victory,” Mr. Obama?
