Brown For US Senate - SCOTT BROWN COMMENTS ON DETERIORATING CONDITIONS IN IRAQ

MANCHESTER Today, Scott Brown issued the following statement on the deteriorating situation in Iraq:

"Two years ago, President Obama told the American people that al-Qaeda had been 'decimated' and was 'on the run.' Today, al-Qaeda has seized control of major cities in Iraq and is on the verge of toppling that country's government. A lot of American blood was shed to secure the freedom of the Iraqi people, which is why what’s happening right now ranks as the most egregious in a long string of foreign policy failures that have characterized the Obama Administration's time in office. If President Obama had more realistically assessed the threat that al-Qaeda posed, and shown more resolve in reaction to it, we might not be in the position we find ourselves now.”
