Bereuter Says War In Iraq is Unjustified
Republican Representative Doug Bereuter has broken away from his party. In the final days of his congressional career, Bereuter says he believes the U.S. Military assault on Iraq was unjustified. He sent a letter to his constituents, stating it was a mistake to launch military action in Iraq. Bereuter is stepping down after 13 terms to become the president of the Asia Foundation, starting September First. In 2002, he spoke out in support of a House resolution, authorizing the President to go to war. He now says his vote was based on faulty, or misrepresented, intelligence.
