Jeb Bush Clarifies Statements About Invading Iraq

After receiving criticism last week for claiming that he would have invaded Iraq, former Florida governor Jeb Bush said on Thursday "Knowing what we know now, I would have not engaged. I would have not gone into Iraq." His statement may serve to quell criticisms from both Democrats and Republicans.

Bush said he misheard the question asked by Fox News Megyn Kelly last week, and that he could not definitively say since it was a "hypothetical." He also used the same reasoning to decline commenting on his position on Iraq. He also said that addressing the issue would be "a disservice" to fallen troops. This week, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) all said that, with today's information, going into Iraq would be a mistake.
