Lindsey Graham: Obama's Policies Getting People Killed

By    |   Sunday, 18 Jan 2015 10:58 AM

President Barack Obama's policies are getting people killed overseas, Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday, starting with his decision to take troops out of Iraq.

"I think sound military advice was given to the president to leave a residual force in Iraq and he turned it down," the South Carolina Republican said on NBC, and as a result, Iraq collapsed.

In addition, Obama's national security team told him three to four years ago to create a no-fly zone in the region and to train the Free Syrian Army, which he also refused, said Graham, and as a result, "almost 300,000 people [have been] killed on his watch... and the worst has yet to come. Hell on Earth is about to descend on Syria and it matters to us."

Jordan, Syria, and Iraq are serving as safe havens for the Islamic State, posing a threat to the United States, continued Graham, who believes releasing prisoners from the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba "is irresponsible."

He also believes there will be more attacks coming like the one against the Charlie Hebdo publication in Paris unless terrorist organizations are disrupted.

"America has to be part of it, go in on the ground and get these guys out of Syria," said Graham. "The current strategy is failing."
