Boehner: Obama Naps While Iraq Burns

(Washington, DC) -- House Speaker John Boehner accuses President Obama of "taking a nap" while a potential civil war brews in Iraq. In a Capitol briefing, Boehner issued a broad condemnation of the President's foreign policy. He said Obama has not done nearly enough to end the bloody turmoil in Syria. Boehner also accused the President of compromising a longstanding American position of not negotiating with terrorists. Boehner again criticized the recent Taliban prisoner swap for U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl. Bergdahl was released after five years in captivity in return for five Taliban detainees.
