Jeb Bush is doubling down on comments that he would still authorize the Iraq War, even after knowing what his top foreign policy adviser, George W. Bush, described as “false” intelligence information. Bush is refusing to walk back on that answer, given in a Fox News interview that aired yesterday. Earlier today, former aide Anna Navarro said that Jeb misunderstood the question. In response, Bush’s camp said that Navarro is not a spokesperson for the former governor, confirming Jeb’s response that he would not change his brother’s wildly unpopular 2003 decision.
