Another Lie Clinton Told At The Debate, About Having To Leave Iraq


#1

During the first debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state said George W. Bush had set the date for withdrawal from Iraq (2011) and that the Iraqi government would not grant immunity from arrest and prosecution to U.S. forces in Iraq after that date.

On the first issue, she is correct although Bush did that largely to give his successor a blank slate with which to work. From his first foreign policy speeches as a candidate for president in 2007, then-Senator Obama made a complete withdrawal from Iraq as a central pillar of his campaign.

However, what about the lack of immunity? On this, Clinton is disingenuous. As the United States was negotiating a status of forces agreement in 2010, U.S. officials did insist on immunity, and Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki agreed to it.
