Speaking with Matt Lauer about his new book, former President George W. Bush claim he was “a dissenting voice” on going to war with Iraq. Yet, he still defends the decision to go to war.

Not everybody thought you should go to war, though,” Lauer said. “There were dissenting voices.”

“I was a dissenting voice. I didn’t want to use force,” Bush said. “I mean force is the last option for a President. And I think it’s clear in the book that I gave diplomacy every chance to work. And I will also tell you the world’s better off without Saddam in power. And so are 25 million Iraqis.”

Matt Lauer’s interview airs November 8 on NBC.
