Poll Context: Rudy Giuliani believes that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are responsible for the creation of ISIS by pushing for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq too soon, which gave ISIS room to grow. He said it was absurd to pull out of Iraq on a timetable, leaving the country to Nouri al-Maliki, a puppet of Iran. That led to the slaughter of Sunni Muslims, and that’s what really “ignited” the Islamic State, Giuliani said.
“They owe their existence to her and to Obama. Had we kept our troops there in fairly significant numbers, we’d have picked up ISIS growing, quickly.”
Talking to Bill O’Reilly Giuliani said,
“Well she had her chance to do it. She helped create ISIS. I mean Hillary Clinton could be considered a founding member of ISIS.”Bill O’Reilly: “How did she help ISIS?”
Rudy Giuliani: “By being part of an administration that withdrew from Iraq. By being part of an administration that let Maliki run Iraq …”
Bill O’Reilly: “Into the ground.”
Rudy Giuliani: “Into the ground. So you forced the Shiites to make a choice. By not intervening in Syria at the proper time. By being part of an administration that drew twelve lines in the sand and made a joke out of it.”
