"I think the Obama Administration, President Obama’s administration had made the decision to leave Iraq despite what the intelligence community was telling us would happen. They were clear that an al Qaeda associated group would rise, that the Iraqi government, the Iraqi people, the Iraqi nation was in a post combat, pre-reconciliation phase," Mattis continued, saying the withdrawal lead to the rise of ISIS.

“I found [Biden] an admirable and amiable man. But he was past the point where he was willing to entertain a ‘good idea.’ He didn’t want to hear more; he wanted our forces out of Iraq. Whatever path led there fastest, he favored,” Mattis wrote. “He exuded the confidence of a man whose mind was made up, perhaps even indifferent to considering the consequences were he judging the situation incorrectly."
