7. We kinda created ISIS

It started due to the loss of Saddam Hussein,the flipflopped power structure in Iraq from Sunni to Shia, and power vacuum left by us.

I'm probably the only person on DU that wasn't crazy about Obama's exit strategy in Iraq. I did not support the Iraq War going in, but Iraq was left in fragments from that war. Bush did not enter the Iraq War with an exit strategy. Iraq did not have a well functioning government when we left at the end of 2011. I know the options going out were not very good for us.
