Reuters: Jeb Bush says 'knowing what we know now,' he would not have invaded Iraq

Republican Jeb Bush reversed field on Thursday after a week of criticism and said that based on information known now, he would not have launched the Iraq war carried out by his brother, former President George W. Bush.

Bush, who is expected to run for the Republican nomination, had told Fox News in an interview broadcast this week that "I would have" authorized the invasion that his brother carried out in 2003.

Without prompting, Bush addressed the issue on Thursday at a town hall event in Tempe.

"Knowing what we know now, I would have not engaged, I would have not gone into Iraq," the former Florida governor said.
