Sanders: Clinton too quick to rush to war, Iraq vote ‘not just an abberation’

The Democratic presidential candidate was asked on CNN’s “State of the Union” if he worries that Mrs. Clinton could push the U.S. into war if she’s elected.

“I worry about that, yeah, I do,” he said. “I think her support for the war in Iraq was not just an aberration. I think her willingness to kind of push President Obama to overthrow [Moammar] Gaddafi and lead to the kind of instability that we’re seeing now in Libya, not inconsistent with her other views in Syria, where she wants a no-fly zone which could suck is into never-ending conflict in that area.”
