I think when General Clark was a General, he may have managed to put on an Apolitical face. At least I hope he maintained that level of required
professionalism in uniform.
I notice that dates 2007. So, the growing height of the revolt, even among conservatives like me, against Bush and what he'd shown his true colors to
be in his second term. Especially the second half of his second term. Clark was a Democrat operative at that stage, if not serious about ambitions for
high office himself.
In the context, it comes as what he was at the time. A potential candidate, bashing to pieces the man he'd be running against ...or for lesser
office, the image he'd be fighting against to obtain it.
I take his words in that context....and honestly, I've never respected that man much anyway. He talks a politicians game with as much sincerity and
honesty as the President he came to publicly rail against.
* He's also a former Commanding General and saying that garbage with, at that time, troops in the field and engaging in daily combat with forces that
we know were watching for and listening to all of this kind of thing for potential propaganda use. I wouldn't even mention this with 90% of
politicians ..but THAT one should know better of all men. It's part of why I lost all respect for him.
