Obama's Middle East Policy Is Causing Problems for Donald Trump

Obama's Middle East Policy Is Causing Problems for Donald TrumpLeft untouched, the nuclear agreement ensures—rather than prevents—Iran from getting nuclear weapons within the next few years. President Trump reluctantly agreed to recertify the nuclear deal with Iran in July, but he indicated that he would not do so again in October. Trump will likely keep his word and not certify the agreement again because it is not in the U.S. national-security interest to do so, according to recent media reports.

Michelle Obama's long journey to the White House is a story spanning five generations

Michelle Obama's long journey to the White House is a story spanning five generationsFormer First Lady Michelle Obama's family sure has come a long way in five generations. American filmmaker and
Selma director Ava DuVernay shared a compelling tweet paying tribute to the former First Lady's great-great-great grandmother, Melvinia "Mattie" Shields McGruder, who was born a slave in South Carolina in 1844.

The inscription on the tombstone states that, at age six, Mattie was brought to the Shields farm, located in what is now the community of Rex, in Georgia's Clayton County.  Decades later, Mattie's great-great-great granddaughter, Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama, not only went to Princeton University but also earned her law degree from Harvard University before going on to become the 44th First Lady of the United States of America. The story of Black America is one of strength, faith, and constant endurance. Still striving, but we have a lot to be proud of.  t.co/fUhx0HnmhS — Erica Bennett (@EricaANjax) August 5, 2017 DuVerney's tweet even inspired a Columbia University faculty member to share how far his own lineage has come since the days of slavery. My great-grandfather William Johnson Moore was a slave in Tennessee. I am now the head of @nycpublicdesign and on the faculty at @Columbia. pic.twitter.com/y8azy1TReI — Justin Garrett Moore (@jgmoore) August 5, 2017 No doubt, it's a true testament to recognize how far black America has come since the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery was adopted into the U.S. Constitution in 1865, 21 years after Shields was born. What a wonderful testimony of what is possible in the USA! t.co/IGNQpN85aU — John London (@jlondon8932) August 5, 2017 It's only a matter of time before Malia and Sasha Obama continue to hold up this upward line of endurance and success, and make their great-great-great-great grandma Shields a proud lady. No pressure, girls. WATCH: Michelle Obama's final farewell: "Lead by example with hope, never fear"

Isis were defeated in Mosul because of Barack Obama's training strategies, says Pentagon official

Isis were defeated in Mosul because of Barack Obama's training strategies, says Pentagon officialPictures of the Iraqi soldiers celebrating their defeat of Isis in Mosul marked a milestone in the fight against the Islamist group but it was also a victory for Barack Obama’s strategy in the region, a senior Pentagon official has said. While the Iraqi armed forces staged an exhausting nine-month siege around the city of Mosul, the US-led air campaign in Iraq and Syria initiated by the former president appears to have proved successful in weakening Isis forces. The US and its allies, including but not limited to the UK, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Turkey, also provided continual training and advised proxy local forces without sending their own troops into action.
