Ex-Republican Leader: I Should Have "Openly Opposed" War Resolution

|

Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-TX) regrets voting for the Iraq War resolution in 2002:

"The resolution was a resolution that authorized the president to take that action if he deemed it necessary. Had I been more true to myself and the principles I believed in at the time, I would have openly opposed the whole adventure vocally and aggressively. I had a tough time reconciling doing that against the duties of majority leader in the House. I would have served myself and my party and my country better, though, had I done so."
