Bernie Sanders rips Hillary Clinton on Iraq war: 'One of the worst foreign policy blunders in the history of the United States'

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asserted at Saturday night's Democratic debate that, when it comes to the mess in the Middle East, "the bulk of the responsibility is not ours." That got Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders going.

"The invasion of Iraq has unraveled the area completely," Sanders said. "I don't think any sensible person would disagree that the invasion of Iraq led to the massive level of instability we are seeing right now."

Sanders also called the 2003 invasion of Iraq, which Clinton supported as a senator from New York, "one of the worst foreign policy blunders in the history of the United States."

Clinton owned it. "I have said the invasion of Iraq was a mistake," she said.
