Wesley Clark Admits He Lied
Fox News | August 26, 2003 | Fox News

Posted on 08/26/2003 4:55:03 PM PDT by Peach

Wesley Clark admitted the White House DID NOT pressure him to lie that Iraq was behind 9/11. He now admits it was a Canadian think tank.

Previously, Clark had insisted that the White House called him, as the towers were falling, to pressure Clark to go national that Iraq was behind the attack. He has backed off that claim and admits he was "confused".

The possibility of an independent candidacy exists. Bubba is his consigliere and he knows he wouldn't have been able to get a BJ in the Oval Office had H. Ross Perot had not split the GOP vote. Bubba knows his 8 years were an accident. Had 19 million people not voted for Perot in 92 (and the liberals blame Nader's pitiful numbers for Gore's loss.) How funny that the Left thought Clinton (who nearly 6 in 10 Americans didn't vote for) was legitimate but Bush is not.

Army chiefs of staff thought that Clark was more concerned with Democrat politics than he was with his duty to the military. The only details are off the record comments from officials and THE FACT that 4 higher ups just never showed for the party, and they were expected. It was a clear dissing.

Clark also praised Kerry and his war record profusely today, leaving open his VP chances. Notice how he has not criticized one Dim yet and won't even declare his party affil? He only bashes Bush yet won't challenge Dims. He is trying to show he has the name and credentials to be VP. They HAVE to choose a military person for VP to counteract Bush's biggest strength- national security. Dims are attacking Bush on security issue- they HAVE to have a VP who is perceived as strong on defense.

I think you nailed it - Clark IS nuts.

Who was it who said they were afraid the left had lost their collective minds? DeLay? Looks more and more like he was correct.

Good points. I get so mad when FNC and other reporters let leftists get away with Bush didn't get 50% of the vote. The reporters really need to remind people that Clinton didn't have anywhere near a majority vote.

I think it was Tom DeLay -- he usually does get it right which drives the RATs up a wall!

Isn't that a Rat euphemism for saying they lied?

Hillary probably had her hand in this somehow. Anything to discredit the current crop.

I guess Clark won't be on the Dean ticket after all.

Perhaps the Canadian think tank was actually Peter Jennings looking for a little scandal.

The only tank Peter Jennings brings to mind is the septic tank and they are both pretty full of it.

That's a bit of a stretch. I think what you meant is that you hope he lied about something in the Balkans that had some influence on policy. OF course, IMO the policy was correct irrespective of anything Clark said.

Let's not talk about property taxes, and suggesting that Prop 13 is not the functional equivalent of the 10 commandments. What are you trying to do, delay my retirement from the law, so that I can do something else more effective in the public square?

Prop 13? Who's talking about California?

I'm referring to revenue from our prospective Palestinian employee in the Israeli occupied West Bank vs. the long term value in property taxes lost to the PA through non-collection due to Israeli occupation.

Try going to Mieszalki and collecting property taxes from the former residents of Hopfenburg - you could care less how well the current occupants are doing if none of their Euros are destined for your pocket.

No, really - try it. I'll give you a percentage of what you collect... = )

The man is a communist, through and through.

Clark is not to be laughed at. If he were to become even V.P.--God-forbid President--he would be the first potential American Adolf Hitler.

Dean has already made it clear that he hates America and all we stand for. Those who would vote for him have the same feelings of hatred for our country.

Was Wesley Clark the Commanding General of Fort Hood Texas when there was an attack on civilians at Waco? The tanks and choppers came from somewhere.
