I must have mis-heard that, sounded like Kerry said he opposed the Iraq AUMF?—

Secretary of State John Kerry famously was for the Iraq War before he was against it, but in taking his case for military action against Syria to MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes” Thursday night, it certainly sounded like he remembers things differently from the rest of America.
Didn’t we untangle all of this in 2004? Apparently not.
MSNBC has posted a transcript of the interview, and Kerry makes no mention of his vote to authorize military action in Iraq. Instead, he refers to the good old days when he and Chuck Hagel “opposed the president’s decision to go into Iraq.”
