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.
