Default George W. Bush's Iraq war architect says he will likely vote for Clinton

Paul Wolfowitz, a top official in the George W. Bush administration referred to as the architect of the Iraq war, said he will likely vote for Hillary Clinton in November.

Wolfowitz is part of a growing list of GOP national security and foreign policy officials who have announced their intention to support the Democratic presidential nominee. But though Clinton has proudly announced the backing of other Republicans, it’s less likely she will roll out a news release touting the support from Wolfowitz.

As deputy secretary of Defense under Bush, Wolfowitz was among the earliest and biggest cheerleaders for invading Iraq and deposing Saddam Hussein. Clinton, as a senator representing New York, voted in 2002 to go to war in Iraq.

Clinton’s support of the invasion has dogged her since, creating problems with members of the Democratic base who view her as a hawk. GOP nominee Donald Trump has also criticized her vote to go to war, and Clinton has labeled her vote a “mistake.”

Wolfowitz, who also told The Times in July that he would probably vote for Clinton, made his comments in an interview published Friday in the German magazine Der Spiegel. Though he noted that he had “serious reservations” about Clinton, he said Trump was “unacceptable” because of what Wolfowitz viewed as dangerous positions on Russia and China.

the NEO-CON war monger establishment republicans are supporting Clinton.
may mean they expect Clinton to give them more or better M.E. wars than Trump.

why does Trump have to be such a dirt bag.
some of his enemies are my enemies.

Where's the anti War left here. I'd like to get their impression of this development.

So the pro war guy likes Hillary.
And the anti war guy thinks that is cool.

Go it.

Clinton has been for most wars. She's never been anti-war leftist.
Frankly neither was Bernie. But I'm not sure i'd call her a Neo-Lib but she seems pretty much on board with every war every time.
Until they start to become unpopular then she was always against it, or it was mistake or she was just working off the intel she had.. or something

She set up the Libya invasion as well as help supply ISIS rebels in Syria.
Neo-con Chicken Hawks should love her.

Maybe they just don't trust Trumps judgement. It's not so far out to question a guy who sees things. Ya know like thousands and thousands of Muslims in New Jersey celebrating.

You are really bad at interpreting. I don't like Wolfowitz. Never did and still don't. But he is a neocon so it is newsworthy that he doesn't support your boy.
