How much responsibility does the U.S. bear for the crisis in Iraq?

As the terrorist group ISIS continues its violent march through Iraq, videos showing gruesome executions by the groups fighters continue to emerge.

CNN has been unable to independently confirm the videos, but they appear to be a trademark move of ISIS. Additionally, footage of what appears to be a child armed with an automatic weapon in Mosul appeared today, adding to the fear that the country is spiraling into chaos.

Retired Colonel Peter Mansoor is OutFront. He was the executive officer to General David Petraeus during the 2007 surge in Iraq.

    i was shocked that Erin quickly hid behind over 1 million Iraqi's being murdered to make a political point. Saddam was at least stable government. Reminds me of Bill Clinton letting 1 million Rwandan's die to save his political and monetary position. I wonder if she feels it's ok for black/Hispanic americans to continue to be murdered in the cities of the U.S. I know Erin it's not our fight,it's out of our control. Since when did we let humanity go out the window to be politically correct??
