Pro to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"...[D]espite the fact that we were wrong about whether Saddam had WMD because Saddam lied about it and everybody, included [sic] Bill Clinton, believed he had WMD, I believe we are all better off and Barack Obama is better off because Saddam Hussein is no longer in this world or in this Middle East creating more trouble...
But after September 11, having been hit once, how could we take a chance that Saddam might not strike again? And that's the threat that has been removed, and I think we're all safer with that threat being removed... And I'm proud to take that argument."
