Listening to McNulty on Alan Chartock’s show on WAMC from September at the moment. I’ve called on him to apologize for voting for the Iraq war. He refuses to apologize, saying that he cast the right vote given the information that was provided by the administration.
This is a dodge. Roughly 73 members of the House voted against the war. McNulty’s excuse essentially says that those 73 were wrong, and that they should have voted for the war based on the information they had at the time.
I would have voted against the war with that information. McNulty makes no apology for voting for it, which means he’d do it again in similar circumstances. If you oppose the war in Iraq, and want to make sure we don’t get caught up in more foolish wars like this, your choice is clear.
