During his interview on 60 Minutes about the state of Iraq and what to do about ISIS, Barack Obama was asked about the disaster that is Iraq. Here is part of what Obama said in response:

Well, here’s what happened in Iraq. When we left, we had left them a democracy that was intact, a military that was well equipped, and the ability then to chart their own course. And that opportunity was squandered over the course of five years or so because the prime minister, Maliki, was much more interested in consolidating his Shiite base and very suspicious of the Sunnis and the Kurds, who make up the other two-thirds of the country. So what you did not see was a government that had built a sense of national unity.

In the U.S., it’s Obama who is “much more interested in consolidating his (left-wing) base and very suspicious of the (conservatives)” who make up a huge segment of the country.

In essence, not only did Obama blame al-Maliki for Iraq but the attributes he applied to al-Maliki are actually Obama’s attributes.
