Me: "All those innocent Iraqi civilians. All the men and women, children killed by U.S. airstrikes. Some in massacres...None of those weigh on your conscience? None of those keep you up at night?" John Bolton: "You don't know what you're talking about."

iraqi'>Exasperated Iraqi PM can’t understand how USA can send a letter “clearly talking about withdrawal” and then say its a mistake. Prime minister’s overall message is: how disorganized is the US administration?

On whether Obama admin paid for missiles that hit Iraqi bases per @realDonaldTrump , @AmbassadorRice : "This is another series of despicable lies by President Trump. Fact that 3 years after taking office he remains obsessed w/ Pres Obama shows (his) extreme weakness & insecurity."

Iraqi security official tells @NBCNews  there has been anther US airstrike, this one north of Baghdad targeting Shiite militia leaders. Reports of 6 killed. This right BEFORE a big Shiite protest tomorrow in Baghdad. It seems certain to provoke an escalation.

After 16 years of war in Iraq, trillions of dollars, the deaths of 4,500 U.S. troops and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, the Iraqi government is now trying to throw us out of their country. All that suffering, all that death, all that huge expenditure of money, for what?

I guess the de-escalation of last night's air strike wasn't enough to fully de-escalate and stop war, so today the US has ordered another airstrike at a top Iraqi militia commander to further de-escalate and stop even more war.

Watching the situation in Baghdad closely. Our patriotic diplomats, servicemembers and the U.S. Embassy deserve protection from the Iraqi host government and smart, strong national security strategy from U.S. leaders. Escalation and violence must end.

Why is a disorganized and chaotic Administration such a danger to national security? This actually happened: They sent a letter — by mistake — to the Iraqi government to inform them our counter-ISIS forces are withdrawing. The dysfunction starts at the top.

For Iraqi women like this model and Instagrammer, daring to be visible in a conservative country can be a death sentence.

Pres Trump spent 3 hours in Iraq: 1) lied about 10% pay increase to troops 2) revealed classified identity of Navy SEALs 3) possibly violated rules against political activity on a military base 4) broke protocol by a visiting head of state by not going to meet Iraqi PM
