Ted Cruz on Iraq

Cruz said knowing what we know now he would not have invaded Iraq.

“Knowing what we know now, of course I would not have invaded Iraq because the entire basis of the invasion of Iraq was the fear that they had weapons of mass destruction.”

MEGYN KELLY: Let’s talk about the Iraq war discussion. I asked him “knowing what you know now would you have authorized the invasion?” He answered a different question than the one that I asked, now he’s come out and said I misheard. So let me just ask you the question. Knowing what we know now would you have authorized the invasion of Iraq?

TED CRUZ: Of course not. The entire predicate of the war against Iraq was the intelligence that showed they had weapons of mass destruction and that there was a real risk they might use them. Now I would note there was a bipartisan consensus, both republicans and democrats looking at that intelligence concluded it was a real threat. We now know that intelligence was false and without that predicate there’s no way we would have gone to war with Iraq and we know that now in hindsight.
