Jeb Bush's Iraq War Fumble Lays Bare the Political Football That is George W Bush

The presumptive Republican presidential candidate has stumbled twice this week when questioned about whether he thought his brother George W Bush made the right decision in invading Iraq in 2003.
In an interview with Fox News’s Megyn Kelly on Monday night, Jeb Bush was asked: “Knowing what we know now, would you have authorized the invasion?”
The former Florida governor replied: “I would have, and so would have Hillary Clinton, just to remind everybody, and so would have almost everybody that was confronted with the intelligence they got.” The answer provoked an immediate firestorm. Both Democrats and potential Republican opponents went after Jeb Bush’s apparent support for the decision to invade Iraq even in hindsight.
