Tape Shows General Clark Linking Iraq and Al Qaeda

By EDWARD WYATT


ANCHESTER, N.H., Jan. 11 — Less than a year before he entered the race for the Democratic nomination for president, Gen. Wesley K. Clark said that he believed there was a connection between the Iraqi government and Al Qaeda.

The statement by General Clark in October 2002 as he endorsed a New Hampshire candidate for Congress is a sign of how the general's position on Iraq seems to have changed over time, though he insists his position has been consistent.

"Certainly there's a connection between Iraq and Al Qaeda," he said in 2002. "It doesn't surprise me at all that they would be talking to Al Qaeda, that there would be some Al Qaeda there or that Saddam Hussein might even be, you know, discussing gee, I wonder since I don't have any scuds and since the Americans are coming at me, I wonder if I could take advantage of Al Qaeda? How would I do it? Is it worth the risk? What could they do for me?"

Of course lately Clark has been saying there isn't a link between Al Qaeda and Iraq. I guess once one becomes the puppet nominee of the Clintons, you have to change your tune.

He's retired. He doesn't know either way - he's making use of the same information we all have. Whether he's "Clinton's puppet" or not is a moot point.

So, is Sec of State Colin Powell a "puppet", cause he just stated that there was NO PROOF of an Al Qaeda/Saddam connection.
