Al Qaeda Takes Over Fallujah

[ANOTHER Obama Success Story – Flag of Al-Qaeda Flies Over Fallujah]
Hey remember the 2012 campaign when President Obama claimed that al Qaeda was on the run? They didn’t get the memo. The terrorists have taken over Falluja, Iraq.
A rejuvenated al-Qaeda-affiliated force asserted control over the western Iraqi city of Fallujah on Friday, raising its flag over government buildings and declaring an Islamic state in one of the most crucial areas that U.S. troops fought to pacify before withdrawing from Iraq two years ago.
The capture of Fallujah came amid an explosion of violence across the western desert province of Anbar in which local tribes, Iraqi security forces and al-Qaeda-affiliated militants have been fighting one another for days in a confusingly chaotic three-way war.
Elsewhere in the province, local tribal militias claimed they were gaining ground against the al-Qaeda militants who surged into urban areas from their desert strongholds this week after clashes erupted between local residents and the Iraqi security forces.
In Fallujah, where Marines fought the bloodiest battle of the Iraq war in 2004, the militants appeared to have the upper hand, underscoring the extent to which the Iraqi security forces have struggled to sustain the gains made by U.S. troops before they withdrew in December 2011. (Read More)
So many American lives lost. So much money spent. All so Iraq could turn into an Islamic state under the leadership of Barack Obama.
