Can't Win for Losing

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi
has declared victory

minus some pockets of resistance

over the Islamic State
in Fallujah

with the militants
largely under control
of Iraqi Security Forces.

And Donald Trump
will simultaneously blame President Obama

for hobnobbing with the terrorists

and congratulate himself
for how much he did

to fight extremism.
