Pro to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"Bottom line is that the Iraqi people are—are still so much better off today than they were under Saddam Hussein, that they’ve had three elections. They are getting their own government. They are able to move about to go to school, girls go to school. I mean, no matter what section of the society you look at right now, they are better off today than they were under Saddam Hussein."
