Donald Trump Has A Truth Problem Of His Own On Iraq

For reasons unknown, but perhaps as a way to attack Jeb Bush, Donald Trump has drastically ramped up his attacks on President Bush and the war in Iraq.
“They lied. They said there were weapons of mass destruction. There were none, and they knew there were none,” Trump said this week.
He’s since backed away from that scurrilous claim. But it turns out that Trump himself has a problem with being truthful when he talks about his opposition to the war.
In a recent debate, for example, Trump boasted that “I’m the only one on the stage that said, ‘Do not go into Iraq. Do not attack Iraq.’ Nobody else on this stage said that. And I said it loud and strong. And I was in the private sector. I wasn’t a politician, fortunately.”
Not exactly.
In an interview with Howard Stern on the first anniversary of 9/11, Trump said when asked directly if he would support invading Iraq: “Yeah I guess so. I wish the first time it was done correctly.”

Trump spoke Truth to Power, and risked everything, just so he could warn Republicans not to go down the Bush road again. He could have easily played it safe like Cruz and Rubio. All of America owes Trump a debt of thanks. I want to thank Trump for standing up for our men, sent by the neocons and used as cannon fodder, to nation build Iraq and A-stan.
