10 years later, many think cost outweighed benefit of Saddam capture

A decade after the capture of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, many Americans think removing him from power was not worth the loss of American life and other costs of attacking Iraq, according to a new CBS News poll.

Thirty-six percent say removing Saddam Hussein was worth the costs of going to war with Iraq, but more – 49 percent – don’t think it was. Fourteen percent don’t have an opinion.

There is a partisan divide: Most Republicans think toppling the Iraqi dictator was worth the loss of American life but majorities of both Democrats and independents disagree. CONT.
