WEBB: I clearly would not have. If you read the “Washington Post” piece I wrote in September 2002, I was saying don’t do it.
Q: Mr. Miller, would you have voted to authorize?
MILLER: I didn’t have access to all the intelligence that Senator Allen and other senators had. But looking back, no.
Q: Was it a mistake to go to Iraq?
MILLER: Yes, sir.
WEBB: It was and I said so at the time.
Q: Is there any difference between your position and his?
WEBB: I think I arrived at it far earlier than Harris Miller did. I think this is recent for him.
Q: At the time that we went were you cheering that decision or opposing it instinctively?
MILLER: I wasn’t opposing it instinctively because I believed General Colin Powell when he said that there was a plan to deal with the post-war effort. In fact, that was a lie. We were misled by the president. It became clear within three or four months it was a huge mistake.
