Military Families With Brains

Gallup finds that a majority of Americans with a close family member who has served in Iraq or Afghanistan say the invasion of Iraq was a mistake.

An analysis of recent USA Today/Gallup polls shows that Americans with close family members who have served in the military since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks — including those who have served in Afghanistan or Iraq — are divided in their overall views of the war. About half of this group says it was a mistake to send troops to Iraq. Most Americans who do not have a close relative who has served in the military since 9/11 also say the war was a mistake.

Of the 7% of Americans who report having a close family member who has served in Iraq or Afghanistan since 9/11, 51% say it was a mistake to send troops to Iraq, while 47% say it was not a mistake. That compares with 58% of those without a close relative serving in Iraq or Afghanistan who say entering Iraq was a mistake.
