Kelly Calls Out Bolton on Iraq: ‘Is That Why You Don’t Want to Discuss the Past 10 Years?’

A day after her explosive interview with Dick Cheney, Megyn Kelly continued to hold supporters of the Iraq War to task, calling out former UN Ambassador John Bolton in the middle of her show on Thursday.

The discussion over Obama’s decision to commit troops to Iraq grew heated when Kelly asked Bolton whether past decisions about the Iraq War, combined with the fact that the war was wildly unpopular by its end, contributed to the current deterioration of Iraq — and Bolton responded that those decisions were “irrelevant to what we face now.”

“I know, you keep saying that,” Kelly shot back, “but it actually is relevant to a lot of people out there who are wondering, ‘How did we get here?’ Is it not relevant to ask, ‘How did we get here?'”

The back and forth continued for a bit, and then Kelly dropped the big question: “You know that a lot of people are out there tonight saying, ‘Well, weren’t you one of the people who was in favor of going into Iraq in the first place. Is that why you don’t want to discuss the past ten years and whether they were worth it?”

While Bolton said that he’d be “happy” to discuss the decisions of the past ten years, “that’s not the question that America faces today.”
