#2 Clark's feet must taste good - he keeps sampling them

#3 The really bad news here is that it reports that Clark has written another book... Terrorism, pure and simple...

#4 In the article Clark mentioned another 'High-Ranking Officer' that passed the information over to him. Is this like the 'Administration Official’ (Canadian Think Tank Guru) that made him connect Iraq to 9/11? Also I find it hard that ANYONE at the Pentagon is talking to Clark (given his record under Billary). I agree with the target list but it makes it sound like Clark has a spy inside DOD. When Wesley ‘The Weasel’ Clark left the service he burned a lot of bridges (front and back). He did so many end-runs on the SECDEF that he had no choice but to fire him. He might have a mole, but I doubt it’s a high ranking mole.

#6 Gentlemen, may I suggest that we not refer to General Clark as "Weasley." It is not an accurate characterization.

As those of you who have read the Harry Potter books know, the Weasley family are among the good guys. By calling Gen. Clark "Weasley," you could be taken to be either implying that the General is one of the good guys or insulting the Weasleys in the Potter books.

May I suggest a more precise term: Weasel Clark. It seems appropriate, considering he would not have launched the Iraq offensive without the approval of M. Chiraq.

#7 Isn't making these type of stratigic plans public during wartime an act of treason? I am just wondering but it seems to me that he should not be making this type of information public if it is true.

I mean if there was such a plan (and he is not just talking out of his ass) then revealing it could put servicemen lives in danger wouldn't it?

And when was the last time the UN overpowered anyone?

#8 If this guy gets the Democratic nomination we could have an interesting presidential debate:

Moderator Amanpour: First to you, President Bush. Who is the second eldest daughter of the third assistant undersecretary of state for the Duchy of Liechtenstein?

Dubya: Gee, Christiane, I just don't know.

Amanpour: (Sniff, sniff) Ah-hah. I see. Now to you General Clark: What is your favorite color?

Clark: Blue! No! Yelllooooow.....

#9 ...says he learned of the plan from officers in the Joint Chiefs of Staff when he met them in November 2001.

Bullshit. When this 4-star dink retired, the Chairman of the JCS didn't even attend his ceremony - a serious public display of disregard.

#10 Let's just say that Clark was briefed in November 2001 (perhaps he was on the phone with Karl Rove). Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Sudan and Somalia sound like a pretty good list to me. We didn't pick this fight, but we intend to finish it. Or doesn't the weasel of the stomach for the fight.

#11 Hey, glad to learn that we have such a plan! I'll be eagerly awaiting its implentation.

#12 Damn I hope he didn't talk about WP Ozark. The secret plan to sterilize Buddy.

#13 Wishy-Washy Clark shoots off his mouth again, and his feet take a direct hit. Does this idiotarian really believe he has what it takes to run the United States? Hell, he got FIRED from the miltiary. That's almost impossible to do, especially for one that's made it to Flag rank. If any of what he's said is true, then he deserves a quick 5.56 round to the left temple - from the right. The fact that he's the favorite of Bill and Hill ought to be enough for most Americans to distrust him. The obvious smell of heavy manure emanating from his general area should also be a clue for most intelligent people.

#14 That's the plan? So what's the friggin' hold up?

#15 Well, with the Nine Ringwraiths bumbling about, one should expect the Mouth of Sauron too. I guess Sauron herself can't be too far behind.
