Jon Tester: We need to be diligent on the war on terror; Iraq is not

TESTER: The war in Iraq has taken us off the war on terror. Itís been shown that 9/11 and Iraq had no connection. But we pulled troops out of Afghanistan to fight the war in Iraq and we took our eye off the ball. I would recommend that we invest in human intelligence and in our special forces in a very big way, so that we know whatís going on before it happens to us. We can fight the war on terror by securing our ports and borders and by going after the terrorists where they are.

Jon Tester: Critical of President Bush on Iraq war

[Regarding] the war in Iraq: Tester was very critical of President Bush regarding the reasons for sending troops to Iraq, the Patriot Act, wiretapping and a lack of consultation with our allies. [His] only plan seems to be to bring the troops home.
