    I was referring to president Clinton. But to play along, at one time eighty percent or better of Americans supported the Iraq war, but in the course of time, they'd like to put that genie back into the bottle.

The problem is, since WW2, we have not been allowed to do that.
    Well, with respect to the current issue. It's a result of decades of support of various militant Islamic groups, and regime change of the very people who did a far better job of containment of them then the US has. Better policy coming out of Washington is what's needed, not unleashing our military.

    I would never vote for her. And it's president Clinton on record that the Iraq war was a mistake.

    "In terms of the launching of the war, I believe we made an error in not allowing the United Nations to complete the inspections process". President Clinton, CBS 60 Minutes.

    Of course the completion of the inspections process would have eliminated the impetus for the war.

    How's that? AQI was formed by al Zarqawi in Iraq in 2004!

    Hmmm...Two def sec's both saying essentially the same sort of thing about Obama. But rest assured, to the bots it is not Obama that has a problem, it everyone else.

    President Clinton has had no role in Iraq.

    Really! He never bombed Baghdad? At any rate, he thinks the premature invasion was a mistake and that the weapons inspectors should have been allowed to finish their job, and being there were no WMD's, they would have concluded such and the impetus for war would have been non existent.

    Malaki didn't need residuals.

    BAGHDAD, Iraq -- Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Thursday he believed Iraqi forces would be ready by June 2007 to take full control of security in Iraq, an issue on which he pressed President Bush during their meeting in Amman, Jordan.

    In making the argument that his military and police could handle security in the country, al-Maliki has routinely said the force could do the job within six months.

    "I can say that Iraqi forces will be ready, fully ready to receive this command and to command its own forces, and I can tell you that by next June our forces will be ready," al-Maliki said in an interview with ABC News.
