Former Congressman Says Iraq War Intelligence Not Misleading or Faulty

In 2002, John Hostettler was one of six Republican congressmen to vote against authorizing war in Iraq. Seven years later, Hostettler has written a book about that decision. In the first of a three-part series, Hostettler explained to WFIU’s Daniel Robison the way in which many in Congress were persuaded by fear and popular pressure into supporting the war. In today’s second part, Hostettler claims the intelligence presented to Congress was neither flawed nor misleading.

Daniel Robison

Daniel started as WFIU's Assistant News Director in July 2008. He graduated with a B.A. in history in 2007 and earned an M.A. in journalism two years later. Daniel hosts Ask the Mayor weekly and the occasional Noon Edition. He also hosts Morning Edition on Thursdays, sleepily. Daniel's beats include everything News Director Stan Jastrzebski wants him to cover. And it feels strange to type biography of myself in the third person like this. So that's that.
