CLARK LIES, II?
I went back through the Pentagon in November 2001, and one of the senior military staff officers had time for a chat. Yes, we were still on track for going against Iraq, he said. But there was more. This was being discussed as part of a five-year campaign plan, he said, and there were a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia, and Sudan.
Kevin and his commenters have a good discussion about the merits of this alleged policy. My differences with Kevin on this one are minor and not worth going into here.
My instinct, though, is that Clark is simply lying. Why would he be running around the Pentagon, let alone getting classified information from Pentagon planners well after he had been fired? It makes no sense.
