The position of both parties…USA should pursue regime change in Iraq.
Among neocons, of course it was true.
The problem with the post 9/11 choices were that this regime change crowd gained momentum,based on Bush’s personal hatred for Hussein and family.
If Bush had maintained focus and concentrated on killing those who assisted the terrorists and were planning additional crimes against America, the US would be far better off. Iraq was never a threat to the US nor a source of terrorists attacking our cities.
Thanks to the Neocons our post 9/11 goals became conflated with those of Netanyahu.
