WASHINGTON (AP) - Jeb Bush says he would have made a different decision than his brother on invading Iraq if he had known about flaws in intelligence reports. But the likely GOP presidential candidate won’t say what that decision would have been.

Bush says it is clear mistakes were made in the Iraq war started by President George W. Bush in 2003. He says the U.S. needs to learn from its past.

Bush is trying to clarify comments he made earlier in the week. He was asked by Fox News whether he would have authorized the Iraq war based on what is now known about the intelligence.

Bush appeared to sidestep the question. He says now that he “interpreted the question wrong.”

Bush spoke on the Sean Hannity radio show.
