Rather than make a decision on the facts of the failure in Iraq Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is leaving it up to the Iraqis to decide for him. Isn't that leadership?
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The top-ranking Republican in the U.S. Senate on Sunday expressed frustration with the Iraqi government, saying Republicans were "overwhelmingly disappointed" with the lack of political progress.
"The Iraqi government is a huge disappointment," Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told CNN'S Late Editing on Sunday.
Citing media reports, McConnell said some lawmakers in Iraq's parliament wanted a vote to ask the United States to leave.
"I want to assure you, if they vote to ask us to leave, we'll be glad to comply with their request," he said.
