Senators change their minds on Iraq

WASHINGTON, Jan. 5 A poll of U.S. senators who served in 2002 has found the body would not have approved the Iraq war if members had the same information then that they do now.

At least 57 senators indicated they would have voted against giving the president the authority to go to war with Iraq, far more than the 23 members that opposed the authorization in 2002, ABC News reported Friday.

The war was approved with a 77-member majority, but a maximum 43 members said they would vote the same way given the information they have now.
