LONDON: Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush has blamed US President Barack Obama and Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton for the current unrest in Iraq and the rise of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
According to the BBC, Bush said that by withdrawing all US forces from Iraq in 2011, the Obama administration and the former Secretary of State Clinton committed a “fatal error” leaving the country destabilized.
Bush also said that Obama and Clinton failed to be the “peacemakers” in their quest to be “history-makers”.
In May, Bush was ridiculed for struggling to say whether he would have approved the Iraq invasion.
At first, he said he would, then he said he wouldn't engage in "hypotheticals" and finally he announced he wouldn't have authorised the invasion.
