When asked again if Biden made a mistake in voting for the war, Warren replied, “Everybody.” 


Warren’s comments come hours after Iran claimed responsibility for the launch of missiles at a pair of military bases in Iraq housing U.S. troops and coalition personnel on Tuesday evening. 

The developments marked a major escalation in tensions between Washington and Tehran after the U.S. killing of a top Iranian general.

“I just don’t think that that kind of record is going to bring forth the kind energy we need to defeat Trump,” Sanders told CNN on Monday night. 

Biden has touted his own foreign policy experience in the Obama administration and on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee amid escalating tensions with Iran. 

“I served in the executive branch of our government for eight years, but I served in the legislative branch for 36 prior to that — and I understand better than anyone that the system will not hold unless we find ways to work together to advance our national interests — not the political interests of one person or one party,” Biden said at an address in New York on Tuesday. 

Biden, Sanders and Warren are all battling for position in the Iowa caucuses, which take place in less than a month.
