27. This was a NATO operation keep in mind
which made it a more complicated situation. Then there was also a lack of political support from Congress which made the admin and the Pentagon fail to make the full committment Clark was asking for. But yes Clark took initiative to insure success and pissed off his superiors. Of course he did get the job done. In the final analysis its hard to argue with success.
