Wesley Clark on Democracy Now! about the Pentagon's decision to invade Iraq.


“And what happened in 9/11 is we didn’t have a strategy, we didn’t have bipartisan agreement, we didn’t have American understanding of it and we had instead a policy coup in this country, a coup, a policy coup. Some hardnosed people took over the direction of American policy and they never bothered to inform the rest of us.”
Wesley Clark (2007)  [1]

Overheard in The Pentagon

Wesley Clark reported in 2007 that:

“In 2001, in the Pentagon, a general told me : ‘I just received a classified memo from the Secretary of Defense: we will take seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and finally, Iran.’”
Wesley Clark (2007-03-02)  [2]
