Statement by Mitt Romney on President Obama's Decision to Withdraw Troops from Iraq
Mitt Romney issued the following statement on President Obama's decision to withdraw troops from Iraq:
"President Obama's astonishing failure to secure an orderly transition in Iraq has unnecessarily put at risk the victories that were won through the blood and sacrifice of thousands of American men and women. The unavoidable question is whether this decision is the result of a naked political calculation or simply sheer ineptitude in negotiations with the Iraqi government. The American people deserve to hear the recommendations that were made by our military commanders in Iraq."
