Bill Jones on War & Peace


We are committed in Iraq and can't leave the job half done

Says he would have voted for the $87 billion spent to help rebuild Iraq, because the fact is we are committed and we cannot leave the job half finished. Spending the money will create a democratic Iraq that will remove a threat to Middle East peace and Israel.

Supports Iraq War; cannot cut-and-run

The encounter focused on Iraq and recent high-profile social issues. Jones didn't directly respond to a question about whether he would vote today to send troops, but said this is no time to "cut and run" even though "it's clear that we have a challenge in Iraq today." He said the decision to go to war last year was the correct one based on the information available at the time. "Clearly we had a menace there, and in post-9/11 the risk of terrorism is great," he said.
