Martin O'Malley Makes Veiled Critique Of Clinton's Iraq War Vote

The Huffington Post The Huffington Post 14/10/2015 Daniel Marans

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley made a veiled but sharp critique Tuesday of Hillary Clinton's vote to support the Iraq War.

"Leading us into Iraq under false pretenses and telling us as people that there were weapons of mass destruction there was one of the worst blunders in American history," O'Malley said during Tuesday's Democratic debate, raising his voice. "The reason people are still so angry about that is because they feel that our legislators got railroaded."

O'Malley then pivoted to say "a no-fly zone in Syria would be a mistake," a policy Clinton supports. O'Malley said he worried about getting into an air war with Russia if asked to enforce a no-fly zone.

"I agree with President Obama that we would be playing the long game," O'Malley said.

Clinton defended the policy as a threat to get Russian President Vladimir Putin to come to the table.
