President Ford Disagreed with Iraq War

Don Rumsfeld, Gerald Ford, Dick Cheney (1975)I guess Bob Woodward always gets the scoop. He certainly does in today’s Washington Post. The headline of Woodward’s story reads “Ford Disagreed With Bush About Invading Iraq.”

Woodward conducted the interview with President Ford in 2004 but only had permission to publish it after Ford’s death. It’s fascinating to see how different Ford is from Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney, both of whom served in the Ford administration. It’s an interesting piece and worth the read.

    Denny, We need to remember that this is just one man’s opinion. Just because Ford disagreed doesn’t mean that the war is wrong.

    Paul,

    I agree. I was in favor of the war and still hope that we stay long enough to win it.

    Thanks,
    Denny

    I do think it is interesting that Ford thought the war was a mistake, and that he had the class to wait until after his passing to make his statements public.
