Clinton Calls War A "Big Mistake", Stays Silent On WMD Issue


by Steve

Well, so much for that White House effort to hide behind the Big Dog. Clinton just called the Iraq war and occupation a "big mistake". But Clinton focused his remarks apparently on the mistakes Bush and Rummy made with the occupation, and stayed away from the WMD intelligence debate.

Clinton said the obvious today: that Bush and Rummy never gave enough thought to what would happen after we got rid of Saddam, and never thought far enough ahead to provide enough resources to secure the country after toppling him.

Clinton sidestepped the issue of WMD intelligence to cover for Hillary's vote in favor of the October 2002 resolution.
