Hillary Clinton: No regret on Iraq vote

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said she is not sorry she voted for a resolution authorizing President Bush to take military action in Iraq despite the recent problems there but she does regret "the way the president used the authority."

Hillary Clinton Defends 2002 Iraq War Vote On Meet The Press



Moderator Tim Russert pointed out that the title of the resolution was the "Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002." Clinton responded saying, "We can have this Jesuitical argument about what exactly was meant. But when Chuck Hagel, who helped to draft the resolution said, 'It was not a vote for war,' What I was told directly by the White House in response to my question, 'If you are given this authority, will you put the inspectors in and permit them to finish their job,' I was told that's exactly what we intended to do. "

5. As I recall..

 

in 2002 he was one of the few telling the truth in the MSM.

Is there something I should know about his Iraq WMD views? I do not follow personality much, so I may have missed something important.

edit -never mind. Wikipdepia offered up the answer. None of Ritter's "sins" (as awful as they may be) negate the truths he told in regards to Iraq WMD and the war machine. I will have to consider replacing or retracting his article, though I still agree with his Iraq stance.
