Longstanding supporters of the war and President Bush were harshly critical of 
the Iraq Study Group report. The cover of the December 7New York Post depicts 
the heads of James Baker and Lee Hamilton superimposed onto the bodies of 
monkeys, with the headline "Surrender Monkeys: Iraq panel urges U.S. to give 
up."[22] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraq_Study_Group_Report#cite_note-22 
Neoconservative https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neoconservative media pundit Bill 
Kristol https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Kristol called the report "an 
evasion" and "not a serious document".[23] 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraq_Study_Group_Report#cite_note-23 Rush 
Limbaugh https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rush_Limbaugh asserted that the members 
of the "Iraq Surrender Group" are "doing everything they can to unite the 
American people" in "defeat" and "surrender";[24]

 Analysis: True
 

 Neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton are prepared to handle U.S. foreign 
policy.
 

 According to a report I read, the Iraq Study Group and William Gates had 
"strongly urged" a large pull back of American troops in Iraq. This was a 
mistake which led to ISI occupying parts of Iraq and Syria, which led to the 
formation of ISIS and the present danger.

 Hillary Clinton could have done a lot more to prevent the rise of the Islamic 
State. She was opposed to the surge in Iraq in 2006. 
 

 According to former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, Hillary Clinton said 
her opposition to the troop surge in Iraq was politically motivated. She was 
wrong in her assessment of the danger that lies ahead.
 

 "At their height in 2006–2008, ISI had military units or strongholds in Mosul 
and in the governorates of Baghdad, Al Anbar and Diyala, and they claimed 
Baqubah as their capital."

 The ISIS group originated in 1999 and pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda 
participating in the Iraqi insurgency after the March 2003 invasion of Iraq by 
the U.S., proclaiming the formation of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) in 
October 2006.
