GuidePedia and Stripes: Dempsey Says Iraqis Weren't Driven Out of Ramadi, They Drove

America’s top military officer says Iraqi government forces weren’t driven out of Ramadi. They drove.

Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters Wednesday on a trip to Brussels that Iraqi security forces commanders made a tactical decision to withdraw from Ramadi last weekend as Islamic State fighters broke through defenses and swarmed through the city, capital of Anbar province.

A sandstorm was reported in the area at the time of the Islamic State assault, but Central Command spokesman Col. Patrick Ryder described it as “minor dust and haze” which had “zero impact,” on coalition air operations.
