Durbin: Bush Restates Reasons for Iraq Conflict

President Bush persists in changing his reasons to keep U.S. troops in Iraq, according to Sen. Richard Durbin (D-IL). Speaking after the president's prime-time speech from Fort Bragg, N.C. Durbin says Bush's connection of the war in Iraq with Osama bin Laden is inaccurate, saying, "Iraq was not a haven for international terrorism before we invaded it."
