“What was the purpose of this whole thing (the war on Iraq)? Hundreds and hundreds of young people killed. And what about the people coming back with no arms and legs? Not to mention the other side. All those Iraqi kids who’ve been blown to pieces. And it turns out that all of the reasons for the war were blatantly wrong. All this for nothing.” (Emphasis, JW)

Donald Trump on Iraq War, August, 2004, reiterated verbatim, August, 2016.

“Obviously I have thought about that a lot in the months since (her October 2002 vote in favor of the Iraq war resolution).   No, I don’t regret giving the President authority.”

Hillary Clinton on Iraq War, April, 2004.

As election day approaches, it is time to ignore the noise of the moment and think clearly about the crucial issues facing us, none of which is more important than war or peace.  The War on Iraq has been a touchstone for these issues over the last 14 years.

On Iraq, Clinton and her operatives have sought to avoid at all costs an accurate comparison of her position over the last 14 years to Trump’s.  “What did Trump say?” has been buried by the Clintonites and company.  “When did he say it?” has been slyly substituted for it.  The time line has been used to equate the positions of Hillary the most notorious of hawks with that of Trump.
