Michele Bachmann Blames Obama For Release Of ISIS Leader Which Happened During The Bush Admin
On the Saturday broadcast of the End Times radio show “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell,” Rep. Michele Bachmann discussed the Islamic State and predicted that the terrorist group’s members are planning imminent attacks inside the U.S. and will make American cities experience levels of violence seen in Iraqi cities like Baghdad, Right Wing Watch reports.
[su_center_ad]Bachmann declared that members of the group are entering the country by illegally crossing the southern border and they “march through our United States airports.”
Bachmann made the completely false claim – a circulated falsehood in the right wing media – that “President Obama released Baghdadi,” referring to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
But, Baghdadi was released during the Bush administration. An agreement signed by President George W. Bush in 2008 led to Baghdadi’s release in 2009.
But never mind all that.
“I don’t want to see the car bombings and all of the havoc and chaos coming to the United States that we see in Baghdad,” she said. “Since we have the Islamic State come into the United States, we’ll see a wave of car bombings and bombings that occur here in the United States that would begin the process of destabilization to bring them to the point of defeating us here in the United States.”
