Iraq war had congressional approval

Iraq war had congressional approval

Once again you try to deceive your readers about Bush going to war with Iraq on his own accord ("U.S. torture was illegal, but nobody is likely to be punished Dec. 29). The Senate, including two of your heroes — Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden — approved going to war in October of 2002. To continually write that Bush attacked Iraq without congressional approval is a lie. Why don't you write a negative commentary on Mr. Obama directing drone attacks that have killed more than 2,000 people (including innocent bystanders), but I guess sycophants don't do the truth. Lyle Rescott, Marriottsville
