Iraq war judged a mistake by today's White House hopefuls

FILE - In this April 3, 2007 file photo, President Bush speaks about the congressional debate on Iraq war spending, in Rose Garden of the White House in Washington. A dozen years later, American politics has finally reached a rough consensus about the Iraq War: It was a mistake. Liberals have been saying that for years, of course, and polls show most of the public already had judged the war a failure. Even many Republican politicians have allowed that the failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq undermined the rationale for the 2003 invasion. Now the nation has come to the point where presidential candidates find it safer to acknowledge that 4,491 Americans and countless Iraqis died as a result of a colossal blunder than to defend President George W. Bush's war. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak. File)WASHINGTON (AP) — A dozen years later, American politics has reached a rough consensus about the Iraq War: It was a mistake.
