WSJ reports:What Jeb Bush Said About Authorizing the Iraq Invasion
http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2015/05/12/what-jeb-bush-said-about-authorizing-the-iraq-invasion/Here's the excerpt of the transcript of the interview in question. From the way he finished his first answer and following answers it's pretty clear he was anticipating a question about whether he would have invaded Iraq based on the intelligence that was used by GW to make the decision to invade.... but I doubt that will matter to most of you.
KELLY: On the subject of Iraq –
KELLY: Obviously, very controversial. Knowing what we know now, would you have authorized the invasion?
BUSH: I would have, and so would have Hillary Clinton, just to remind everybody, and so would have almost everybody that was confronted with the intelligence they got.
KELLY: You don’t think it was a mistake?
BUSH: In retrospect, the intelligence that everybody saw, that the world saw, not just the United States, was faulty. And in retrospect, once we, once we invaded and took out Saddam Hussein, we didn’t focus on security first. And the Iraqis, in this incredibly insecure environment turned on the United States military because there was no security for themselves and their families.
By the way, guess who thinks that those mistakes took place as well? George W. Bush.
KELLY: Your brother.
BUSH: Yes, I mean, so just for the news flash to the world, if they’re trying to find places where there’s big space between me and my brother, this might not be one of those. But it’s important to remind ourselves of lessons learned going forward, the world is different today than it was in 2001. It’s going to be different in 2017 if we allow this president’s foreign policy to continue on. The unraveling isn’t going to stop.But don't let the facts get in the way of whatever you decide to believe. Just try not to confuse your power to believe something to be true with the fact that believing has never made anything true.
