Giuliani: 'Hillary Clinton Could Be Considered a Founding Member of ISIS'
On "The O'Reilly Factor" last night, Rudy Giuliani argued that Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton helped create ISIS.
"Hillary Clinton could be considered a founding member of ISIS," Giuliani told Bill O'Reilly.
The former mayor of New York City explained that President Obama and then-Secretary of State Clinton pushed for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq too soon, which gave ISIS room to grow.
On "Fox and Friends" this morning, Giuliani doubled down on the claim that Clinton is one of the reasons behind the rise of the terror group.
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."
