"Being wrong about sending Americans to kill and be killed, maim and be maimed, is not like making a punctuation mistake in a highway bill," Chafee writes in the book previewed by the AP. "They argue that the president duped them into war, but getting duped does not exactly recommend their leadership. Helping a rogue president start an unnecessary war should be a career-ending lapse of judgment, in my view." Chafee's book is titled, "Against The Tide: How a Compliant Congress Empowered a Reckless President."
Lincoln Chafee, the only Republican Senator to vote against authorizing the war in Iraq in 2002 is now a former Republican and former senator from Rhode Island (corrected). But he's supporting Barack Obama in the presidential campaign and, in a new book, Chafee doesn't hold back on what he thinks about his colleagues who supported the war in 2002.
