Ted Cruz: I wouldn't have gone into Iraq

U.S. Senator and GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz told Fox News' Megyn Kelly that he wouldn't have supported the invasion of Iraq knowing what he does today.

"Of course not. I mean, the entire predicate of the war against Iraq was the intelligence that showed they had weapons of mass destruction and that there was a real risk they might use them.

"Now I would note that there was a bipartisan consensus, both Republicans and Democrats looking at that intelligence concluded that it was a real threat. We now know that intelligence was false. And without that predicate, there's no way we would have gone to war with Iraq, and we know that now in hindsight," Cruz said.
