According to Pierson, Barack Obama invaded Afghanistan. Remember?
“Barack Obama went into Afghanistan, creating another problem,” Pierson said.
Blackwell, doing lots of serious blinking, responded,“Ok so you’re saying Barack Obama took the country into Afghanistan post-2009, is that what you’re saying?”
To which Pierson gave her scholarly affirmation, “that was Obama’s war, yes.”
This is not the first time Pierson has been inventive with regards to which president did what and when. Earlier this month, Pierson told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that she blamed Obama and Hillary Clinton for the death of soldier Humayun Khan in 2004 in Iraq.
Pierson told Blitzer, “It was under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton that changed the rules of engagements that probably cost his life,” referring to a policy Obama enacted in 2009.
