"We need a forward-looking foreign policy that talks about how to reassert American authority and influence around the world," Christie said on CNN Wednesday morning.
CHRIS CHRISTIE: I think President Bush made the best decision he could at the time, given that his intelligence community was telling him that there was WMDs and that there were other threats right there in Iraq. But I don’t think you can honestly say that if we knew then that there was no WMDs, that the country should have gone to war. So my answer is no. What we've got to avoid is continuing to go backwards in this country.
