In fact, Clinton voted against an amendment proposed by Senator Carl Levin that would have authorized war only if Iraq refused to fully cooperate with UN inspectors.
"Instead," notes scholar Stephen Zunes, "she voted for the Republican-sponsored resolution which gave President Bush the authority to invade and occupy Iraq at the time and circumstances of his own choosing."
Clinton falsely claimed on Wednesday that top inspector Hans Blix supported the war resolution she voted for. He did not. And actually, just last week he said it's doubtful ISIS would exist if not for the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Tell the world that truth about war really matters.
Five months after Senator Clinton's vote, Bush launched the long-threatened campaign of shock and awe, and Clinton did not object. In fact she went on to vote repeatedly to fund the ongoing war that she now claims she never intended. She later became the prime mover behind an overthrow in Libya modeled on the overthrow in Iraq.
