Fiorina: ‘I Would Not Have Gone In’ to Iraq

Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said that knowing then what she knows now, she would not have gone to war with Iraq on Wednesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel

She stated, “Yeah, the intelligence was clearly wrong. And so had we known that the intelligence was wrong, no, I would not have gone in. And I have said publicly, on many occasions, that going into Iraq was mismanaged, and coming out of Iraq was mismanaged. It is also true, having known the head of the CIA at that time, known the head of military intelligence in the United Kingdom at that time, it’s also true, in President Bush’s defense, that the intelligence community was pretty unified in their strong belief that Saddam Hussein did have WMD. He did not. The intelligence was obviously highly faulty. And so knowing that now, no, I would not have gone in.”
