WESLEY CLARK (D-AR): "[I]f I'm president of the United States, I'm going to take care of the American people. We are not going to have one of these [terrorist] incidents."

wow.... how can he do that? Probably like any other Democrat... make it against the law....  Nuts

I don't think he will have to worry about holding up that campaign promise..

Wesley Clark said yesterday the two greatest lies of the last three years are that the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks couldn't have been prevented and that another attack is inevitable.

They could have very well been prevented. As early as '99 The US was gathering intelligence that suggested that this kind of thing would happen in 2001, and what did the administration chose to do when June rolled around? Ignore the problem. Look what happened.

Clark, a retired Army general, envisioned a future in which Americans "have more confidence in ourselves as a people." He continued: "Nothing is going to hurt this country - not bioweapons, not a nuclear weapon, not a terrorist strike - there is nothing that can hurt us if we stay united and move together and have a vision for moving to the future the right way."

That is finally a statement that I can be proud of. Right now with those Tom Ridge commercials, people are running around in a mass panic every time the terror alert status goes from High Approval Rating (yellow) to Low Approval Rating (orange). It is in this terror alert system that the terrorists have achieved their goal. They have instilled fear into the hearts of americans, and that is what they set out to do.

"I'm looking to leaders today who are not out there trying to unnecessarily scare the public. But I think it's equally dangerous to try to reassure the public," said Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease and Research at the University of Minnesota. "We have to tell the truth, and the truth of the matter is that America still remains vulnerable."

Truth, would be a nice change, wouldn't it?

OH, that gives me a "warm fuzzy..."

He never does qualify his statement, and yes, I would appreciate the truth from the Dems for a change. Thanks eric.

Well at least there isn't any investigations going on right now as to whether or not he told the truth, now is there. Yeah, you know what I'm talking about, that whole Iraq thing.

Clark:
"I think there are some mass destruction capabilities that are still inside Iraq. I think there's some weapons that have been shipped over the border to Syria. But I don't think we're going to find that their capabilities provided the imminent threat that many feared in this country. So I think it's going to be a tough search, but I think there's stuff there." (NBC's "Meet The Press," 6/15/03)

I really think JeffM is a person who thinks politics is simply a game, and the political parties are teams. He blindly roots for his favorite team like it's a football game and this upcoming election is the super bowl. Absolutely no justification for his statements. Well, newsflash buddy, there is much more to it than that.

There was a change of Administration between the two. If the intelligence was being gathered during the Clinton Administration, why wasn't anything done then?

Not absolving the Bush Admin of guilt, but perhaps - at best - both Administrations considered the al-Queda threat to be minor annoyances of little consequence or capability. I don't think anyone expected an attack on the scale of 11 September 2001.

I am sure a Kerry/Clark ticket will do just fine as they both have a recorded history of changing their minds on important issues...in Clark's case from day to day...plus you have that long voting record of Kerry (Pock marked with missed votes) to see the inconsistencies and back tracking.

To me, right or wrong it takes more guts and shows more character to pick a road and stay with it, rather than jump from road to road depending on what the temperament of the people is...of course I say that but Clinton got through two terms doing just that.

I can't say I am a staunch fan of Bush, but what I can do is see through the bullshit on both sides, something you "Anyone but Bush" can't seem to do. Pity for you.

Were not Bush's accusations of WMD utter bullshit? He's bullshitting huge things like that - and he's in public office. That's not good.

Kind of funny, but for all of Clark's talk of bravodo, that is all it is, just talk. C'mon General Clark, if you have really big idea as to how to keep the country safe let's hear them.

Side note, General Clark is destroying any chance of a political career, had he stayed out of the race & kept his mouth shut, he could have been a Vice President candiate for Kerry or Edwards.
