Obama Praises Self for Ending Iraq War on Bloodiest Day of Year There

JEWEL SAMAD/AFP/GettyImages(WASHINGTON) -- President Obama’s campaign on Monday released a video praising the president for ending the war in Iraq.  The clip comes on the same day that has proven to be the deadliest day of the year in that country.

A wave of attacks throughout Iraq Monday, involving IEDs, explosions and gunmen, resulted in more than 100 people killed and more than 200 wounded.

On Sunday, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, al Qaeda’s top leader in Iraq, released an audio message announcing, ”We are setting off a new stage of our struggle, with the launch of a plan named ‘breaking the walls.’”

None of those killed Monday appear to be American.
