PJTV's Alexis Garcia recently caught up with Rep. Allen West to discuss the latest news about the war in Iraq, Iran, Syria and President Obama's failed economic policies. 

West says he is "very concerned" about the rapid withdrawal of American troops from Iraq. West believes the move was political and simply an effort by Obama to fulfill a 2008 campaign promise ahead of his re-election. He also expressed concern about Iran's motives after U.S. troops leave the region.

"When the President made the announcement the first he started off with was saying he's keeping his campaign promise so I don't want to see this be a campaigner-in-chief deicision as opposed to a commander in-chief-decision."
