In an e-mail release the day after the President's "State of the Union" address the Constitution Party said this about the Iraq War:
"As to the constitutionally unauthorized war in Iraq, the Constitution Party reminds Americans that during his 2003 State of the Union address, the president said: 'If Saddam Hussein does not … disarm…we will lead a coalition to disarm him.' He said those words relying on intelligence information that we now know to be false. More than 3,000 U.S. soldiers have since died. Both parties in Congress abdicated their duty to either declare war or prevent engaging in war. The president should now be looking for ways to extricate the U.S. from the quagmire he and Congress got us into by making arrangements for Iraq to immediately assume the responsibility of stabilizing its government, and getting our troops out. Let us use the past as prologue for what could very well be justification for yet another war in the Middle East , this time in IRAN. What could be the purpose of calling for an increase in the size of the military, other than to engage in further excursions as world policeman? Has this president learned nothing from the Iraq debacle?
Unlike the Republican and Democrat parties, the Constitution Party remembers that our founders warned against such 'foreign entanglements'."
