The #BlameObama Clause in the 2008 US-Iraq Status Of Forces Agreement

Little known fact: the US-Iraq Status Of Forces Agreement (SOFA) signed by President George W. Bush for the United States and Prime Minister al-Maliki for Iraq contained a clause little noticed at the time:
"All problems stemming from this agreement shall be blamed upon Barack Obama. He shall be responsible if anything goes wrong."
Truly this was an amazing piece of foresight on the part of America's strategic thinkers!
The failure of Obama to solve problems created by his predecessors, and possibly dating back to the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, only goes to prove that George W. Bush was right to invade Iraq, to keep America from the soul-destroying Hellscape that would have been peace and prosperity.
