    R.I.P.

    “I did not do what I should have done to read and find out whether Bush was telling us the truth about Saddam (Hussein) being responsible for 9/11 and having weapons of mass destruction,” Jones said in a 2015 radio interview. “Because I did not do my job then, I helped kill 4,000 Americans, and I will go to my grave regretting that.”

    Jones signed more than 11,000 letters to families of dead troops since 2003, an act he told The Associated Press was “penance” for his vote.
    He became an active voice against foreign intervention and I believe his sincerity and regrets.

    Walter B. Jones dies aged 76

    I am very sad to report the death of Rep. Walter Jones:

    Washington (CNN) North Carolina Republican Rep. Walter Jones died on Sunday at age 76, according to a statement on the congressman's website.

    "After faithfully representing the people of Eastern North Carolina in Congress and the state legislature for over 34 years, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) passed away this afternoon in Greenville, North Carolina. He was 76," the statement reads.

    Jones died on his 76th birthday, according to The Washington Post.
    Walter was an inspiration, initially he was pro-war but after listening to Ron Paul he changed his mind and became a fierce critic of war. He will be sadly missed.

    Here's Walter Jones being interviewed by Alex Jones. Walter was spearheading the effort to remove John Boehner as speaker. He showed us great courage in doing that!

    Sad news. And soon the people of Walter's district will probably go from being repped by a great man like Walter to a nasty little MIC troll named Phil Law, who has been lusting after Walter's seat for 8 years.

    Walter Jones, congressman behind 'freedom fries', dies at 76

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-47196266

    Republican congressman Walter B Jones, known for changing the name of French fries in government cafeterias to "freedom fries", has died.

    Mr Jones was a keen supporter of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and pushed for the name change in protest against France's opposition to the war.

    But he later had a complete change of heart, becoming one of the most vocal critics of the war in his party.

    His office confirmed that he died on 10 February, his 76th birthday.

    Mr Jones represented his district for 34 years, first in the North Carolina state legislature, then in Congress.

    At the time of his death, he was being cared for in a hospice in Greenville, North Carolina, having broken his hip last month. His office said that his health declined after his fall on 14 January.

    "Congressman Jones will long be remembered for his honesty, faith and integrity," a statement from his office said.

    "He was never afraid to take a principled stand. He was known for his independence, and widely admired across the political spectrum. Some may not have agreed with him, but all recognised that he did what he thought was right."

    'Freedom fries'
    Like most Republicans - and a number of Democrats - Mr Jones backed President George W Bush's resolution to use military force in Iraq to oust its leader Saddam Hussein.

    Mr Bush justified the invasion by claiming that Saddam Hussein had developed and hidden weapons of mass destruction.

    France, which threatened to veto the UN's resolution authorising US-led military action, was the most vocal in its opposition to the war.

    In response, Mr Jones and his fellow Republican Robert W Ney pushed for cafeterias in the House of Representatives to rename their French fries and French toast "freedom fries" and "freedom toast".

    The two congressmen were successful, and the new names were met with praise and derision in equal measure.

    No weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq, and it was later revealed that the war was justified using faulty information.

    At the same time, Mr Jones met grieving families whose loved ones were killed in the war. This caused him to have a dramatic change of heart, and in 2005 he called for the troops to be brought home.

    He spoke candidly on several occasions about how deeply he regretted supporting the war, which led to the deaths of more than 140,000 Iraqi and American people.

    "I have signed over 12,000 letters to families and extended families who've lost loved ones in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars," he told NPR in 2017. "That was, for me, asking God to forgive me for my mistake."
