John Kasich on Iraq

Kasich believes we never should have committed ourselves to Iraq.

DANA BASH: One of your competitors Jeb Bush is blaming the rise of ISIS on President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Do you think that that’s true or do you think that George…

JOHN KASICH: I don’t know what his thinking is on that.

BASH: Well, just the fact that he pulled the troops out of Iraq and left a situation there.

KASICH: We should have had a base left in Iraq.

BASH: Do you think that President George W. Bush, who launched the attack initially, bears some responsibility?

KASICH: Well look I would never have committed ourselves to Iraq and as you can see ultimately it’s probably going to end up being divided into three parts. I think the Kurds are great allies of ours and we’ve got to be very conscious of some of the things that they need and balance that off against the Turks because that’s become an issue over there. All the religions of the world ought to stand up and say “you blow up innocent men, women and children and think you’re going to paradise there’s something wrong with you you’re nuts and if we catch you we’re going to throw you into prison maybe for the rest of your life.”
