Vice President Joe Biden still believes the Iraq war was a bad idea, a position he had held from the outset.
“I don’t think the war was worth it in the sense that we paid a horrible price,” Biden told NBC’s David Gregory Sunday.
Gregory asked Biden about a statement he made that the resolution of the Iraq War would be viewed as one of President Barack Obama’s great achievements.
“We are going to be in a position to bring home 90,000 combat troops by the end of the summer,” he added.
Biden also predicted a successful election in Iraq with full participation of Sunnis, Shias, Kurds and other minorities.
Gregory asked the Vice President if the Iraq War was worth it.
“No I don’t think the war was worth it,” Biden replied. “We paid a horrible price not only in loss of life, the way the war was mishandled from the outset. But we took our eye off the ball putting us in a different and more dangerous position in Afghanistan. We lost support around the world and it has taken a lot of hard work to get it back.”

Conservative columnist blasts GOP as ‘partisan hacks for whom hypocrisy is second-nature’
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump once again ripped into The Squad, this time to undercut an emotional press conference in which Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MN) described the conditions her Palestinian relatives live under.
“Sorry, I don’t buy Rep. Tlaib’s tears. I have watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long,” the president tweeted. “Now tears? She hates Israel and all Jewish people. She is an anti-Semite. She and her 3 friends are the new face of the Democrat Party. Live with it!”

Convicted Cardinal Pell’s fate hangs on appeal
An Australian court will rule on George Pell's appeal against child sex abuse charges Wednesday, when the convicted cardinal could walk free or begin a new round in his protracted legal fight.
Once the Vatican's third-ranking official, 78-year-old Pell was sentenced this year to six years in jail for sexually assaulting two 13-year-old choirboys at a Melbourne cathedral in the 1990s.
After more than two months of deliberations, a three-judge appeals panel will hand down their decision.
Pell is the most senior Catholic convicted of child sex abuse, making his case and Wednesday's ruling a touchstone moment for believers and victims groups around the world.
