Marco Rubio and Iraq: Two questions, two answers (video)

The Iraq war is back, thanks to Jeb Bush.

Marco Rubio faced the question earlier Wednesday in New York and said he wouldn't have supported the war with the knowledge of faulty intelligence -- something Bush couldn't seem to say. But when Rubio fielded the Iraq question on Fox News in late March, he defended the war.

There's a difference. On Wednesday Rubio was asked about WMDs. In March the question was more general, Was it a mistake?

Is that enough difference for Rubio to say he's not reversing his position?

(The video above shows the March 30 interview first, followed by Wednesday's.)

Bonus: Jeb Bush taking another stab at the question while in Arizona on Wednesday.
