He was forced to continue to clarify his position and at the second primary debate he said, "I think it's really embarrassing that a group of candidates up here are working on changing the leadership in this country and can't get their own story straight I would have never voted for war.
The war was an unnecessary war, it was an elective war, and it's been a huge strategic mistake for this country. Another media incident started during the New Hampshire primary September 27, , when Clark was asked by space shuttle astronaut Jay C.
Buckey what his vision for the space program was after the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster. Clark responded he was a great believer in the exploration of space but wanted a vision well beyond that of a new shuttle or space plane.
I'd like to know what's out there beyond the solar system. But I can't believe that in all of human history we'll never ever be able to go beyond the speed of light to reach where we want to go.
I happen to believe that mankind can do it. I've argued with physicists about it. I've argued with best friends about it. I just have to believe it.
It's my only faith-based initiative. Clark center with his wife Gertrude right in Seattle, Washington on August 19, The Iowa caucuses marked a turning point in the campaign for the Democratic nomination, however, as front-runners Dean and Dick Gephardt garnered results far lower than expected, and John Kerry and John Edwards' campaigns benefited in Clark's absence.
Clark performed reasonably well in later primaries, including a tie for third place with Edwards in the New Hampshire primary and a narrow victory in the Oklahoma primary over Edwards.
However, he saw his third-place finishes in Tennessee and Virginia as signs that he had lost the South, a focus of his campaign. He withdrew from the race on February 11, , and announced his endorsement of John Kerry at a rally in Madison, Wisconsin, on February A woman holds a Clark sign with one of his slogans at a Ned Lamont rally Clark attended in Clark campaigned heavily throughout the midterm election campaign, supporting numerous Democrats in a variety of federal, statewide,  and state legislature campaigns.
Clark has opposed taking military action against Iran and in January he criticized what he called "New York money people" pushing for a war.
This led to accusations of antisemitism. Clark was mentioned as a potential presidential candidate on the Democratic ticket before endorsing Hillary Clinton for President.
Clark, however, publicly endorsed Kansas governor Kathleen Sebelius for the position, introducing her as "the next Vice President of the United States" at a June fundraiser in Texas.
On June 29, , Clark made comments on Face the Nation that were critical of Republican John McCain , calling into question the notion that McCain's military service alone had given him experience relevant to being president.
That large squadron in the navy that he commanded—it wasn't a wartime squadron. He hasn't been in there and ordered the bombs to fall. Clark's retort, however, is what drew rebuke.
In referring to McCain's military experience, he stated: "Well, I don't think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president.
However, Clark has received the backing of several prominent liberal groups such as MoveOn. 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, Somalia,Sudan and finishing off Iran.
Wesley Clark has been awarded numerous honors, awards, and knighthoods over the course of his military and civilian career.
Notable military awards include the Defense Distinguished Service Medal with four oak leaf clusters , the Legion of Merit with three oak leaf clusters, the Silver Star , and the Bronze Star with an oak leaf cluster.

Clark, at the age of 46, was promoted to lieutenant general on November 11, , three days after the Torch landings. He was the youngest three-star general in the U.
Many officers, most notably Major General George S. Patton, Jr. Patton, in particular, believed Clark was "too damned slick" and believed Clark was much too concerned with himself.
The Fifth Army's initial mission was preparing to keep a surveillance on Spanish Morocco. On September 9, , the Fifth Army, composed of the U.
McCreery —to whom Clark would later scornfully refer as a "feather duster"—under Clark's command landed at Salerno codenamed Operation Avalanche.
The invasion, despite good initial progress, was nearly defeated over the next few days by numerous German counterattacks and Major General Dawley, the VI Corps commander, was sacked and replaced by Major General John P.
Lucas , who himself was later sacked and replaced after his perceived failure during Operation Shingle. Clark was subsequently criticized by historians and critics for this near-failure, blamed on poor planning by Clark and his staff.
The Fifth Army, by now composed of five American divisions the 3rd , 34th , 36th and 45th Infantry , along with the 82nd Airborne and three British divisions 7th Armoured , 46th and 56th Infantry , operating alongside the British Eighth Army , under General Bernard Montgomery, subsequently advanced up the spine of Italy, and captured the Italian city of Naples on October 1, and crossed the Volturno Line in mid-October.
Progress, however, soon began to slow down, due to German resistance, lack of Allied manpower in Italy, and the formidable German defenses known as the Winter Line , which was to hold the Allies up for the next six months.
When handing over the U. Butler , claimed "I don't know, but I don't believe the enemy is in the convent. All the fire has been from the slopes of the hill below the wall.
Clark's conduct of operations in the Italian Campaign is controversial, particularly during the actions around the German Winter Line, such as the U.
American military historian Carlo D'Este called Clark's choice to take the undefended Italian capital of Rome, after Operation Diadem and the breakout from the Anzio beachhead , in early June, rather than focusing on the destruction of the German 10th Army , "as militarily stupid as it was insubordinate".
Clark led the Fifth Army, now much reduced in manpower, having given up both the U. The initial stages went well until the autumn weather began and, as it did the previous year, the advance bogged down.
Clark was promoted to the four-star rank of general on March 10, , aged 48, the youngest in the United States Army. Early on the morning of January 28, , a PT boat carrying Clark to the Anzio beachhead , six days after the Anzio landings, was mistakenly fired on by U.
Several sailors were killed and wounded around him. The cable entwined the wing, forcing the Piper Cub into a rapid downward spiral.
The plane broke free of the cable after the third time around, leaving a large section of the wing behind. The fuel tank ruptured, spraying the fuselage with gasoline.
Miraculously, the pilot managed to land safely in a cornfield. Later in , as Commander in Chief of US Forces of Occupation in Austria , Clark gained experience negotiating with Communists, which he would put to good use a few years later.
Clark served as deputy to the U. Secretary of State in and attended the negotiations for an Austrian treaty with the Council of Foreign Ministers in London and Moscow.
In his apparent quest for the Democratic Presidential nomination, General Wesley Clark rightly criticizes President Bush for waging a "pre-emptive" invasion of Iraq, and in particular for being "unprepared" for the post-invasion occupation of the country.
Yet these Democrats apparently have short memories. It was only four years ago that General Clark waged a war against Yugoslavia that had similarly shaky motives and spiraling postwar consequences.
Clark has whitewashed the Kosovo intervention as a "humanitarian" campaign to rescue Kosovar Albanians from Serbian "ethnic cleansing," even though it actually helped fuel the forced explusions.
The General credits NATO bombing of Serbian cities for bringing about the fall of Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic, even though Serbian democrats loudly objected that it undermined and delayed their ultimate victory.
Clark claims that the postwar NATO occupation brought "peace" to Kosovo, but he was clearly unprepared for the violent "ethnic cleansing" that took place on his watch, largely facilitated by his decisions, under the noses of his troops.
Democrats believe that Clark, as a former military officer, could make the party more viable on foreign affairs than it's been since a general named George Marshall was containing Communism under the command of a president named Harry Truman.
That's the conventional wisdom, though the staggering cost of the badly bungled Iraqi occupation has diminished the Republican advantage on defense no matter who runs against Bush.
While media commentary on Clark's prospective candidacy has been almost entirely favorable--even adulatory--it's worth looking back at a forgotten chapter in his military biography that occurred when Clark was Supreme Allied Commander of NATO and Commander In Chief for the US European Command.
Call it Clark's "High Noon" showdown. It's an incident that deserves scrutiny because Clark's claim to be an experienced leader in national security matters is tied, in significant part, to his record in the Balkans….
Clark: A Vain, Pompous Brown-noser. Clair, CounterPunch, June Anyone seeking to understand the bloody fiasco of the Serbian war need hardly look further than the person of the beribboned Supreme Allied Commander, General Wesley K.
Politicians and journalists are generally according him a respectful hearing as he discourses on the "schedule" for the destruction of Serbia, tellingly embracing phrases favored by military bureaucrats such as "systematic" and "methodical".
The reaction from former army subordinates is very different. While Clark's official Pentagon biography proclaims his triumph in "transitioning the Division into a rapidly deployable force" this officer describes the "1st Horse Division" as "easily the worst division I have ever seen in 25 years of doing this stuff.
Even before the raid, members of the US Armed Forces, many of them in civilian dress, were around the compound.
In the wake of the Feb 28 debacle Texas governor Anne Richards asked to consult with knowledgeable military personnel.
Subsequent congressional enquiry records that Richards met with Wesley Clark's number two, the assistant division commander, who advised her on military equipment that might be used in a subsequent raid.
Clark's man, at Richard's request, also met with the head of the Texas National Guard. Ultimately tanks from Fort Hood were used in the final catastrophic assault on the Branch Davidian compound on April Certainly the Waco onslaught bears characteristics typical of Gen.
Wesley Clark: the eagerness to take out the leader viz. Wesley Clark, War Criminal. Wesley Clark is a major war criminal.
Please don't be fooled by the current well-orchestrated push to nominate Clark as Democratic Party nominee for president, at trap which Michael Moore has apparently fallen into as well as a number of other well-meaning peace people.
Wesley Clark was in charge of refugee camps in the s and s where Haitian refugees who were fleeing first Baby Doc Duvalier and later the new regime installed by the US following the overthrowal of the elected Aristide government in the early s , were packed, under appalling conditions condemned by the Center for Constitutional Rights, among many others.
In the s, many Haitian male refugees incarcerated at Krome in Miami , and Fort Allen in Puerto Rico reported a strange condition called gyneacomastia, a situation in which they developed full female breasts….
I've long appreciated your work, your politics and your writings. And precisely because of that, I'm surprised by and disappointed in your solicitation of Wesley Clark's candidacy for the Democrat nomination for President.
