Jeb Bush Says He Misinterpreted Iraq War Question

Former Florida governor and likely Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush tried walking back comments after he said in an interview that "mistakes were made" in launching the Iraq War, NBC News reported. "I don't know what that decision would have been, that's a hypothetical. But the simple fact is that mistakes were made," Bush said on the Sean Hannity radio show. But in an earlier interview with Fox News' Megyn Kelly, Bush said he would have authorized the invasion, "and so would have Hillary Clinton, just to remind everybody," even the major weapons of mass destruction cited as a rationale for the war were never found. "I interpreted the question wrong, I guess," Bush said.
