Former Special Advisor to the US National Security Council
Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"What we have done with the invasion of Iraq is that [al Qaeda has] a lot more recruits now, and they're a lot more militant than before the invasion...The pool of people who really hate us is so much greater than it was on 9/11 because of this needless and counterproductive war in Iraq...
The president kept saying Iraq was the central front in the war against terrorism — well, it is now."
