Rubin Retracts

On August 8, Jamie Rubin, national security advisor to John Kerry, said:

In all probability [John Kerry] would have launched a military invasion with the support of the rest of the world by now.
This got heads scratching and got many of us wondering if these guys are even speaking to each other. Well, it ain't much consolation, but, as The Washington Post reports, he did retract the statement today:

To the extent that my own comments have contributed to misunderstanding on this issue. . . . I never should have said the phrase 'in all probability' because that's not Kerry's position and he's never said it. That was my mistake.

He went on:

Bush went to war the wrong way. What we don't know is what would have happened if a president had gone about it the right way.
