Ohio 2nd District Congressman Brad Wenstrup knows a good bit about what's currently happening in Iraq. He served there with the U.S. military, before being elected to congress. The congressman says he's been "disheartened" by what is is seeing with the collapse of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's leadership.

The troubling news out of Iraq continues to mount, with Sunni rebels taking more ground as they approach Baghdad.

Wenstrup believes the U.S. needs to have a "defined mission", if we are going to help stabilize the Iraqi nation. He also says the U.S. made a mistake by completely withdrawing troops from Iraq, and is concerned the same thing will happen in Afghanistan.
