This news is probably a week old, but I still think it’s worth noting. On Thursday the Tulsa World reported:
U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn’s comment that going to war in Iraq was “probably a mistake” represents a significant departure from where the Oklahoma Republican started out on the 5-year-old conflict.
Coburn’s comment came at the beginning of remarks at a weekend town hall meeting in Muskogee.
“I will tell you personally that I think it was probably a mistake going to Iraq,” said the freshman senator, who made it clear he did not believe the U.S. could withdraw but had to stay.
