Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"I not only voted against [the war], but I did an analysis five years ago that totally debunked the Bush case for war.
As a matter of fact, the analysis that I did was 100 percent spot-on in asserting that there was no proof that Iraq had the intention or capability of attacking the United States, that they had anything to do with 9/11 or al-Qaida's role in 9/11, and certainly there was no proof that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction."
