I'll be darned, but I'm really starting to like Wesley Clark. Robert Scheer likes him, and that's almost enough for me right there. And he wrote a very cogent dissection of the war in Iraq, taking a firm stand against the "military-industrial complex" for the New York Review of Books. I'm thinking to myself: I want a president who writes essays for the New York Review of Books. Or even thinks of hiring someone to write one for him.
So here's what I want to know: Is somebody pulling some wool over my eyes?
For example, a fact-checking matter. Clark says that in the NATO Kosovo campaign he ran, no American soldiers, airmen, or Marines were killed in action. Is he obfuscating? Did some other type of servicemen die? How many French soldiers died, etc?
Input requested and appreciated. I honestly don't know what to think.Posted by kio at October 09, 2003 02:06 PM
