barberoGeneral Michael Barbero (Retired) joined Brian on Kilmeade and Friends to share his insight on the fighting in Iraq.

Listen Here:

General Barbero told Brian that three things led to the turmoil in Iraq:  we left, al-Maliki stayed, and ISIS arrived.  In 2010-11 it was well known that the Iraqi security forces were an unfinished product and that al-Maliki was very sectarian and that he was gutting the effective leaders and we decided that it was not worth staying there and we left.  The new Iraqi Prime Minister is favorably viewed by the Iraqi's but they don't know if he is up for the task.
