VIDEO: Fox’s Megyn Kelly Played This Video of George W. Bush and Liberals Are Absolutely Furious

When it comes to George W. Bush’s legacy, he will hopefully be given credit for his warnings of the dangers of pulling-out of Iraq prematurely. Fox News’ Megyn Kelly recently reminded viewers of this fact and as the Conservative Tribune points out, liberals are sure to hate this inconvenient fact.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly shared a video of former President George W. Bush from 2007, when he warned explicitly against pulling American troops out of Iraq too early and the consequences and repercussions such a move would bring.

In 2008, when he was first running for office, then-Sen. Barack Obama promised that he would end the war in Iraq, among other things.

At the end of 2010, President Obama did exactly that, arbitrarily declaring the war over and bringing home all U.S. military members from the country, leaving it solely in the hands of the fledgling and not-quite-ready Iraqi army.

Last year, the world watched in horror as a resurgent Al Qaeda breakaway group that called themselves the Islamic State, derisively dismissed as a mere “J-V team” by Obama, raped, pillaged and slaughtered their way through Syria and Iraq, filling a power vacuum left in the wake of America’s hasty exit.

Now, just a few short years after withdrawing, American troops are headed back to the region to take on the Islamic State group.

This didn’t come without some warning though, as the Fox News Channel host Megyn Kelly pointed out last year.

“I know some in Washington would like us to start leaving Iraq now,” Bush said in 2007. “To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we’re ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region, and for the United States.”

“It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to al Qaeda,” Bush added in a prediction that turned out to be eerily true.

Whether one is for or against the War in Iraq, the undeniable truth is that we waged a war there and are currently losing the hard-won ground purchased with blood and sacrifice.

This is hardly the “change” Americans signed up for…
