Adam Smith would not support Iraq intervention

By Neal McNamara | June 12, 2014 is reporting that Federal Way-area Democratic Congressman Adam Smith would probably be against any intervention in Iraq, this as President Barack Obama said Thursday that he would not rule out airstrikes to staunch the Jihadist army sweeping across the country.

Appearing on CNN on Thursday, Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA), a Democrat who voted in favor of the resolution which authorized the use of force in Iraq in 2002, expressed serious reservations about reengaging in military operations in Iraq.

“I would be very, very reluctant to dive back into that,” Smith said of renewed operations in Iraq. “Are the al-Qaeda militants in Iraq threatening the U.S. in some way? Otherwise, we’d be being dragged into a war in a very difficult to predict way.”
