Help me

I'm having a hard time understanding Mr. Kerry in his interview with Diane Sawyer. He said that knowing what he knows now he would not support the invasion and toppling of Iraq and that regime. Using that train of thought, knowing what we know now the words "Tora Tora Tora " would have never been uttered because we would have seen into the future and prevented Pearl Harbor. If the Japanese, knowing what they know now, they would never have awakened the sleeping tiger. This is the most idiotic train of thought, and it is being ignored by the MSM and their educated best. As soon as I can get a transcript of the Kerry/Sawyer exchange I will post it.
Update: full transcript is not yet available but ...

Sept. 28, 2004 — In his only interview before the crucial first presidential debate, Sen. John Kerry speaks exclusively to Diane Sawyer about his thoughts on the war in Iraq and the public's perception of him.

Following is an excerpt of the interview with the Democratic presidential candidate:

DIANE SAWYER: Was the war in Iraq worth it?

We should not have gone to war knowing the information we know
SAWYER: If it turns out OK ... it was worth it?
We have to succeed now that we've done. Look, we have to succeed.
There are more terrorists in Iraq today then there were before, and you can't
allow it to become an unstable regime that's a haven for terrorism. I've laid
out a plan for success. I am not the president today. But each step of the way,
I've laid out a plan for success, and each step of the way the president had
always been following — always later, never the one who is initiating the things
to make it successful. He's gotten us into this mess. It was his decision as to
when to go, his decision as to how to go, his decision not to listen to his own
