Clinton calls the invasion "big mistake"

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- Former President Clinton told Arab students Wednesday the United States made a "big mistake" when it invaded Iraq, stoking the partisan debate back home over the war.

Clinton cited the lack of planning for what would happen after Saddam Hussein was overthrown.

"Saddam is gone. It's a good thing, but I don't agree with what was done," Clinton told students at a forum at the American University of Dubai.

"It was a big mistake. The American government made several errors ... one of which is how easy it would be to get rid of Saddam and how hard it would be to unite the country."

Yes, that's the school I worked at, and he goes down as well as fresh humus and warm pita bread every time he goes over there, so it wouldn't surprise me that he got standing ovations, even if he'd said the exact opposite.

All I can say is "thanks for laying the groundwork in your own administration, asshole."
