Invasion of Iraq led to current instability, the worst foreign policy blunder – Sanders
At the Democratic presidential debates Bernie Sanders blamed US policy in the Middle East for creating instability in the region. Martin O’Malley joined the criticism, while Hillary Clinton had a hard time defending her vote supporting the Iraq invasion.
The trio of Democrat presidential nomination contenders met for the second debate in Des Moines, Iowa on Saturday. In the aftermath of the deadly attacks in Paris that claimed over 120 lives and injured over 300, the issue of the turmoil in the Middle East and the advancement of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) was the first topic up for debate.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders called the invasion of Iraq, “One of the worst foreign policy blunders in the modern history of the United States.” His criticism was targeted at the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who voted for the Iraq War, when she was a New York senator.
