Obama's inaction in Iraq's legacy: Non-Muslims stranded on mountain top
Earlier this week ISIS captured Iraq's largest Christian city--the terrorists told its inhabitants to leave, convert to Islam, or be killed.
The atrocities are numerous and horrible--for instance, a five year-old Christian boy was sliced in half by ISIS.
In Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, ISIS brutes are marking the doors of Christian homes and businesses---just as the Nazis did to Jewish establishments.
And on a mountain top, tens of thousands of Yazidis, members of a Zoroastrian sect, and Christians are stranded on a mountain top. Some have already died there.
Obama has authorized food drops for refugees and targeted military strikes.
But three years ago we had troops there. Obama snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in Iraq.
