Daily Kos: Jay Rockefeller says he was wrong on Iraq, thanks to the administration

Armando at Daily Kos: : "On Wolf Blitzer's show, Wolf showed Senator Jay Rockefeller's (D-WV) floor speech explaining his Aye vote for authorizing force against Saddam Hussein and Iraq. Rockefeller did the right thing and the smart thing - He admitted he was completely wrong in voting for the Iraq War. He said that if he knew then what he knows now, he would never ever would have voted for war in Iraq. He insisted that the reason he did not know then what he knows now was because the Bush Administration stovepiped the intelligence. In effect, he called them liars."

Yeah, this is the only defense left for those Dems who voted for the Iraq war.

And it's actually a pretty good one. The only problem with it is that in order to use it, they have to say, in effect, they were lied to.

And I don't think the Dems were willing to make that direct allegation until now.
