Rep. Gabbard on Iraq War: 'We Were All Lied To'

Rep. Gabbard on Iraq War: 'We Were All Lied To'

By    |   Wednesday, 31 July 2019 10:32 PM

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, said Wednesday night the nation and military were "lied to" about the need to go to war with Iraq.

Vice President Joe Biden was challenged about his vote to go to war in Iraq while he served in the Senate.

"I did make a bad judgment trusting the President [George W. Bush] saying he was only doing this to get inspectors in and get the UN to agree," he said.

But when CNN moderator turned to Gabbard as "the person on stage who served" in Iraq, Gabbard declared: "We were all lied to."

"This is the betrayal . . . betrayal to the American people," she said. "To me, to my fellow service members, we were lied to, told [Saddam] Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and working with al-Qaida and posed a threat to the American people."

"The problem is that this current president is continuing to betray us," she charged. "Over years now, not only have we not gone after al-Qaida, who is stronger today than 9/11, our president is supporting al-Qaida."
