Boehner on Iraq: 'What's the President Doing? Taking a Nap'

Thursday at his weekly press briefing, Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) said he urged President Barack Obama to get engaged with the unfolding crisis in Iraq “back in January.”

Now that an al Qaeda splinter group is reportedly advancing towards Baghdad, Boehner said, “It’s not like we haven’t seen this problem coming for over a year. And, it’s not like we haven’t seen, over the last five or six months, these terrorists moving in and taking control of Western Iraq. Now they’ve taken control of Mosul. They’re a hundred miles from Baghdad. And, what’s the president doing? Taking a nap.”
