Eric Fingerhut on War & Peace

Would not have made the decision to invade Iraq

FINGERHUT: Asked if he, like Bush, would have made the decision to invade Iraq, Fingerhut responded without hesitation, "No, I wouldn't. We did not follow the time honored principles of this country, nor did we have a plan for success," he said. "I am not going to vote to send our troops to battle without adequate troops to do the job."

VOINOVICH: "We had to go into Iraq," Voinovich responded. "The president did the right thing. Saddam Hussein was a bully who thumbed his nose at the world."
