A debate over the Iraq war triggered by Jeb Bush's wobbly response to questions about it spilled into a major gathering of Republican 2016 U.S. presidential hopefuls on Saturday, reflecting divisions about whether the conflict was worthwhile.Former President George W. Bush, who launched a U.S.-led invasion in Iraq in 2003, was defended by his brother, Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor who is likely to join an array of politicians vying for the Republican nomination.Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, a libertarian-leaning Republican with an isolationist streak, questioned whether the Iraq war was worth it given the rise of ISIS.Other Republicans blame the rise of ISIS on the failure of Democratic President Barack Obama to leave a post-war contingent of U.S. troops in Iraq.Other Republicans candidates or potential candidates focused on ISIS as a growing threat that must be challenged.
