Finally. A reason to like Lindsey Graham.
The South Carolina Senator appeared on The Situation Room on CNN today and said something that every GOP Presidential candidate should be saying: The Iraq war was not a mistake.
Yes, even knowing what we know now, the Iraq war was still the right decision.
Why? Because Saddam Hussein had stockpiled old weapons of mass destruction, he routinely thumbed his nose at UN inspectors, he was trying to obtain uranium ore from Africa, he had used weapons of mass destruction on his own people in the past, and he could have provided terrorists with weapons that would have been used to attack all of us.
In other words: The Iraq war was not a mistake.
The fact that Lindsey Graham seems to be the only prominent Republican who’s willing to say this on national television does not speak well for the current state of the Republican party.
Oh, yeah. Graham also said that the current mess in Iraq is all Obama’s fault.
He’s right about that, too.
