Jeb Bush sidesteps brother's role in Iraq war

Jeb Bush aggressively went after Hillary Clinton in his foreign policy speech last night at the Reagan Library, and attempted to flip the debate over the Iraq war into one about the rise of ISIS. (More on that here).

Notably, Bush did not once mention his brother, former President George W. Bush, who began the war. And Jeb Bush made only an oblique reference to the faulty intelligence that his brother relied on. "Rushing away from danger can be every bit as unwise as rushing into danger, and the costs have been grievous."

The speech was well received among conservatives and left Democrats calling it a whitewashing of history. It ensures that the Iraq war is back as a matter of debate.
