I believe that the United States pursued an unwise and unnecessary war with Iraq and I have consistently voted against continuing to fund this war without specific timelines to withdraw our troops. Thanks in part to the tireless efforts of advocates for peace -- all the way from President Obama and Congressional leaders, to the activists on the Lake Street Bridge in Minneapolis -- the United States officially ended combat operations in Iraq on September 1st, 2010. Despite this victory for peace, there are many important lessons that I believe we must learn from the lead-up to the Iraq War and its execution -- mistakes that we must never repeat as a nation.
