Carter: Iraq One of the Greatest Presidential Blunders

The former President officially states the obvious:

Former US president Jimmy Carter said the Iraq war was one of the "greatest blunders" ever made by a US leader.

"It's going to prove, I believe to be one of the greatest blunders that American presidents have ever made."

Asked whether the Iraq war would prove to be a bigger mistake in the annals of US foreign policy than the war in Vietnam, he answered: "I think it is going to be a close call ... but perhaps much more vividly known by the rest of the world than Vietnam was."
