From the Independent:
Donald Trump’s spokeswoman claims Barack Obama ‘invaded Afghanistan’
- Spokeswoman Katrina Pierson said on Saturday that Afghanistan was “Obama’s war”. In truth, the US and UK led the invasion of the country in October 2001 at the direction of President George W Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair.
- Ms Pierson, who is Mr Trump’s national spokeswoman, was talking on CNN about Mr Trump’s shifting views on whether or not Mr Obama was the “founder” of Isis – a claim he made earlier this week.
While Obama certainly aided the rise of ISIS by his Hillary Clinton-enable military adventures in Syria and Libya, the caliphate has longer roots, dating back to Dubya’s days.
