As reported by Breitbart News, potential Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush has backed his brother George W. Bush’s authorization of the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
In an interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, Bush says that “knowing what we know now,” he would have done exactly with his big bro did, if he was Commander-In-Chief at the time.
“I would have,” the Republican answered. “And so would have Hillary Clinton, just to remind everybody, and so would have almost everybody that was confronted with the intelligence that they got.”
Bush is absolutely right. Hillary Clinton, and even her hubby, Bill, both said that action needed to be taken to clear Iraq of chemical weapons.
Citing intelligence reports, here is then-Senator Hillary Clinton on the Senate floor in 2002, making the case for the use of military force to address Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction (WMD’s) program and stockpiles in Iraq.
