WITHDRAWAL FROM IRAQ GAVE AL-QAEDA HAVEN

Consequence of Obama’s Withdrawal Becomes Clear
By Harold Hutchison

The resurgence of al-Qaeda can be directly linked to Barack Obama’s decision to withdraw troops from Iraq at the end of 2011, a number of experts have said.

According to a report by the Washington Free Beacon, the withdrawal of troops made it easier for al-Qaeda affiliates to regain ground by creating a vacuum. Most notably has been al-Qaeda’s Iraqi affiliate now becoming the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

OBAMA PLACING BRITISH TROOPS AT RISK?

Withdrawal of HH-60 Pave Hawks Leaves Brits in Lurch
By Harold Hutchison

The withdrawal of HH-60 Pave Hawk combat search-and-rescue helicopters is now placing British troops at greater risk. The withdrawn choppers are similar to one that crashed in the United Kingdom last week, killing a four-person crew.

According to a report by the London Daily Mail, the withdrawn choppers are equipped with winches that assist in removing casualties from minefields. British forces in Afghanistan turned to Air Force Pave Hawks after a 2006 minefield rescue left a British soldier dead.
