Exit Stage Left

A senior Republican member of the House International Relations Committee and vice chairman of the House Intelligence Committee calls the Iraq war “unjustified.” Rep. Doug Bereuter (R) of Nebraska said,

“Knowing now what I know about the reliance on the tenuous or insufficiently corroborated intelligence used to conclude that Saddam maintained a substantial WMD (weapons of mass destruction) arsenal, I believe that launching the pre-emptive military action was not justified.”

“Left unresolved for now is whether intelligence was intentionally misconstrued to justify military action.”

Bereuter is retiring from congress.
