James Woods Is Wrong About Obama Again, But At Least He’s Consistent
James Woods, the actor and Twitter user, who sends out links to WorldNetDaily and other brain trust sites, thought he’d weigh in on the situation in Iraq and, of course, ISIS, which is all Obama’s fault. The problem Woods refers to has everything to do with the Bush administration, and nothing to do with President Obama.
Woods’ claim is rated “false.”
The right wing media claimed that Obama released the current head of ISIS from government custody in 2009. That’s accurate only if Obama has access to the TARDIS.
RedState.com reported,”The leader of the ISIS, the al Qaeda affiliated terrorist group that is rampaging through Sunni Iraq, was released from US custody in 2009.”
According to Politifact, the legal contract between the United States and Iraq that guaranteed that the United States would give up custody of virtually every detainee was signed during the Bush administration.
We shall wait for James Woods to rectify that tweet in 3…2…
It would have required an extraordinary effort to have held on to Baghdadi and there is no evidence that he was on anyone’s radar screen, assuming that he was in custody at all in 2009.
The U.S.-Iraq agreement drove the release of thousands of detainees in 2009, but Obama had nothing to do with that.
What’s really sad here is that it would have taken Mr. Woods less than a second to Google the facts.
Please proceed, James.
I am often criticized for airing my views. I feel, however, that this administration is so dangerous, I have no moral choice but to speak.
