(Politico) – Glenn Beck is admitting he was wrong and liberals were right for opposing the invasion of Iraq.
“[Liberals] said we couldn’t force freedom on people,” Beck said at the start of his Tuesday radio show. “Let me lead with my mistakes. You were right. Liberals, you were right, we shouldn’t have.”
Beck’s comments came as he discussed the increasingly partisan divide in politics, saying, “We were a mess in 2008. … It hasn’t gotten any better.” The radio personality explained his feelings that in the past five years the country has been “ripped apart.” To fix this divide, Beck called on the American people to come together on some issues, such as the VA scandal and Iraq.
“From the beginning, most people on the left were against going to Iraq,” Beck said. “I wasn’t.”
