What does Elissa Slotkin, Democrat candidate for Congress in Michigan’s 8th district, and former CIA analyst, have to do with the creation of ISIS in the Middle East? According to Senator John McCain, Slotkin, a former CIA analyst, while working with the Obama regime, made the decision to pull our US troops from Iraq, leaving a vacuum for ISIS, the worst terrorist group in modern history, to recruit, organize and metastasize.
President George W. Bush, at the end of his Presidency, warned America of the risk of withdrawing precipitously from Iraq. Nevertheless, the United States military forces, under the direction of then President Obama, quickly started a withdrawal from Iraq that was completed in 2011. Not coincidentally, by April of 2013, the Islamic State of Iraq had united with al-Nusra Front to form Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
At that time, ISIS was confined to the immediate area of Iraq and Syria. President Obama famously referred to ISIS nine months later in January of 2014 as the “JV team.” Just over a year later, however, according to ABC News, on “the second anniversary of the declaration of its Islamic ‘caliphate,’ or kingdom . . . the group has gone from obscurity . . . to the world’s most brutal terrorist network, not only responsible for thousands of deaths in the Middle East but also linked to hundreds more in dozens of terrorist plots in the West.”
By the end of Obama’s second term, December of 2016, according to CNN, “the self-proclaimed Islamic State has conducted or inspired more than 140 terrorist attacks in 29 countries other than Iraq and Syria, where its carnage has taken a much deadlier toll. Those attacks have killed at least 2,043 people and injured thousands more.” –Forbes
While he was campaigning for president, Donald Trump made a commitment to voters that he would wipe out ISIS. He also called out Barack Obama for his horrific decision to pull our US troops out of Iraq, calling him the “founder of ISIS” and Hillary Clinton, for her part, the “co-founder” of ISIS.
Donald Trump neglected to mention one of the key players in the horrific decision to pull our US troops out of Iraq, Elissa Slotkin, a Democrat Party plant, running for US Congress in Michigan’s 8th district against conservative Republican Congressman Mike Bishop. In 2014, when Slotkin was the acting Assistant Secretary of Defense for Foreign Affairs and International Policy, she was questioned about her involvement in the decision to pull our troops by the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Armed Services, Senator John McCain, during a confirmation hearing where Slotkin was rejected for the position of Assistant Secretary for International Security Affairs under Hillary Clinton.
Why would Michigan send Elissa Slotkin to Congress? Have Americans already forgotten the fear and horror we felt, as we watched innocent Christians, Jews, Muslims and Yazidi’s being beaten, beheaded, burned and drowned in cages, or the images of 30 Christian men tied together as they marched to their deaths?
Are four years ago too long ago, to remember images of Iraqis citizens literally running from ISIS as they headed into Mosul in death caravans?
And what about the innocent young men who were captured by ISIS at gunpoint and loaded onto trucks in Tikrit? Have we already forgotten about them? Whatever happened to them? Are any of these young men alive, or were they brutally killed and buried in shallow graves?
Have we forgotten about the next generation of children who were indoctrinated by ISIS to hate Christians and Americans?
And what about the images of women, young girls, and even young boys were captured and sold as sex slaves?
Why would Michigan residents want to hire someone as incompetent as Elissa Slotkin to represent them in Washington DC?
