Lindsey Graham: Obama 'Failed' In Iraq


Graham also criticized the administration's handling of Libya, saying that the toppling of Muammar Qaddafi, Libya's longtime dictator, should have occurred at a faster pace -- and that the months of pro-longed engagement have destabilized the region with now unaccounted-for weapons caches that have largely disappeared.

"If you go to war, go to win, don't lead from behind," Graham said, blaming Obama's reliance on support from allies such as the British and French for months of delay.
