Iowa Congressman Leonard Boswell will be watching and listening closely to President Bush’s “State of the Union” speech tonight to see what the president has to say about the potential war with Iraq. Boswell, a democrat from Des Moines, says he has some reservations about the situation.He says he’s a little bit anxious that the U-N inspectors haven’t turned up what we thought, and says he’d like to see the inspections continue, and the U-S be careful about attacking without hard evidence. Boswell, a Vietnam veteran, says he wants all other means used before the U-S resorts to force.He says to go into Iraq for any kind of war effort should be a last resort in the face of an imminent threat of an attack of some sort by Iraq. Boswell says any action against Iraq should be led by the U-N. He’s not sure if there’s support in the U-N for such action. He says it seemed like U-N support for action was building, but now appears to be waning. Boswell made his comments during a stop in Des Moines Monday before returning to Washington, D.C. for tonight’ State of the Union address.
