Pro to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"A year and a half ago, I voted to give President Bush the authority to use force in Iraq. I still believe my vote was just--but the president's use of that authority was unwise in ways I never imagined... [President Bush] allowed military strategy to trump diplomatic efforts. He hyped intelligence about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction programs to create a sense of urgency. And he gave up on securing more international support when he abandoned the effort to pass a second Security Council resolution. As a result, we rushed to war on misguided premises. We're paying a price for that haste today."
