On Wednesday retired General Petraeus stated that the United States is losing to ISIS in Iraq. On Thursday Democrat Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi blamed the legendary General Petraeus for ISIS.

In response from a reporter’s question during the House Democrat Leadership Press Conference Nancy Pelosi said that it was General Petraeus’s job to train the Iraq military and obviously he didn’t train as many as he claimed:

Reporter: “General Petraeus said last night that we are losing the war in Iraq. How do you see it?”

Pelosi: “Well General Petraeus had the responsibility to train the troops in Iraq. I remember going over there on any number of occasions and hearing from him that he had trained 175,000 Iraqi troops and personnel so that they can take over their own effort. I would ask him about that. I think the number was far smaller than was represented to us.

In 2008, after the Bush surge had been in effect for a year, violence in Iraq went down by 90{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} .
Pelosi insisted it was a failure.
