One Republican is speaking out with a very earnest apology for his failure to properly evaluate the proposal for war in Iraq in 2002. Representative Walter Jones (R-VA) commented this week that he must carry the weight of his failures to his grave.

“I did not do what I should have done to read and find out whether Bush was telling us the truth about Saddam being responsible for 9/11 and having weapons of mass destruction,” Jones said on the Tyler Cralle Show.

“Because I did not do my job then,” he said, “I helped kill 4,000 Americans, and I will go to my grave regretting that.”

This isn’t the first time that Jones has expressed his regrets in regards to our past engagements in the Middle East. He has also made it very clear that he believes Dick Cheney will burn in hell for his part in the scheme.
