Former US Senator (D-CT) and 2008 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"Had we known before the war what we know today - that there were no weapons of mass destruction; that there were no links between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda; that there was no imminent threat from Iraq to America's security or vital interests - Congress would never have considered, let alone voted to authorize, the use of force in Iraq."
"Remarks By Senator Christopher J. Dodd at Providence College," Oct. 12, 2006
[Editor's Note: On Oct. 11, 2002, Chris Dodd voted in favor of House Joint Resolution 114 "Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002."]
