At Iowa dinner, Rand Paul hits Jeb Bush on Iraq

Eli Stokols, POLITICO

Sen. Rand Paul was alone among the 11 Republicans who spoke here at the Iowa Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner Saturday night in taking a shot at Jeb Bush over his comments last week about the Iraq War. Bush, of course, has spent the week backpedaling after initially telling Megyn Kelly in a Fox News interview that he would have authorized military force in Iraq even “knowing what we know now”; four days after the interview aired, Bush acknowledged that he would not, in hindsight, have made the same call as his brother did.
