US SENATOR GRAHAM, SC, REPUBLICAN: ISIS TAKING RAMADI IS ‘EXHIBIT A’ OF OBAMA’S MILITARY FAILURE

Fox News on May 18, 2015 reported that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) spoke to Fox News Greta Van Susteren in a wide-ranging interview about ISIS taking over Ramadi and his June 1 announcement on plans to run for the White House. Excerpts below:

ISIS…gained control of Ramadi after Iraqi government forces abandoned the city.

An estimated 25,000 people fled from the key Iraqi city after ISIS fighters began their assault on the city center over the weekend…

Graham told Van Susteren that ISIS gaining control over Ramadi “is a predictable outcome of withdrawing all forces back in 2011.”

The potential 2016 presidential candidate explained that since President Barack Obama refused to take the military’s advice to leave troops behind in Iraq, “everything you see before you is a result of that big mistake.”

Graham also shared that he is “99 percent” sure that he will run for president in 2016.

He said that he will make an announcement on his intentions June 1 in his hometown of Central, South Carolina.
