Hillary Clinton Watch: Hillary’s War Part Two

Hillary Clinton addresses Code Pink on March 6, 2003 and discusses Iraq, Saddam Hussein and the run up to the Iraq War.

Hillary AGAIN avoids anwering the question raised in Hillary’s War:

Did she read the entire 2002 National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq before voting to authorize the Iraq War?

The Quote:

“We were thoroughly briefed by the people who wrote that estimate, by the people who supervised its writing, on numerous occasions. And I believe that I received all of the information that was necessary for me to reach a judgment.”

But Clinton’s response raises more questions: If the vote was the “hardest decision” she has ever made, was a briefing by the people who wrote the estimate sufficient to reach that decision? And if then-Sen. Bob Graham (D) said he decided to vote against the war authorization because he had read the entire NIE report, as Jeff Gerth and Don Van Natta Jr. write in the New York Times magazine, then did she really have all the information she needed to reach a judgment?

She won’t answer the question.

Somehow I think Obama will raise it and if not then the GOP nominee.

Update:

John Edwards cannot seem to answer the question either without flip-flopping.
