The Candidates Speak: Obama's Enduring Opposition To Iraq War
Key passage (2004 Interview with Charlie Rose):
Obama: I've looked at the evidence. I'm a hawk when it comes to defeating terrorism. I was strongly supportive of Afghanistan -- I would have picked up arms myself to prevented 9/11 again. I don’t think the president has made the case on Iraq because I don’t see weapons of mass destruction… I said this in October of 2002, six months before the war was launched.
Rose: If you had been a member of the Senate, you would have voted against the resolution.
