(2005-11-11) -- Democrats in Congress today rejected President George Bush's accusation that they're trying to rewrite history, which shows they supported the Iraq war based on the same intelligence that drove his decision to send in the troops.
"We had no pre-war intelligence,"” said Sen. John Kerry, "History will show that none of the leading Democrats had substantial intelligence. Anyone who remembers what we did then knows that the president is making a baseless allegation. I think history will bear out my contention that we Democrats lacked the intelligence to make such an important decision." [...]
"Our troops deserve to know that their elected leaders who voted to send them to war will remain firm in our conviction that we didn't know what we were doing at the time,"” Sen. Kerry said.
