Pence: ‘American People Know It’s True’ that Bob Gates Was Partly Responsible for ISIS
‘I understand that Secretary Gates may not want to hear that, but the American people know it’s true’
PENCE: "The simple truth is, that during his tenure as secretary of defense, Secretary Gates was part of the Obama administration’s handling of U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. And the way that we got without renegotiating a status of forces agreement, without leaving any combat forces in Iraq created a vacuum in which the ISIS caliphate was able to rise up and compromise large areas of Iraq to this very day that were hard-fought and won by saying Bob Gates was Partly responsible for ISIS sacrifices of American soldiers. So, you know, I understand that Secretary Gates may not want to hear that, but the American people know it’s true."
