3. Clark: "Ultimately, the US has no control over Iraqis electing a Shiite...
... regime, despite what Donald Rumsfeld has said."

This in response to the question about turning over sovereignty to the Iraqis.

In reference to Bush's visit to Baghdad, Clark said "It was absolutely the right thing for the Commander-in-Chief to do. He should spend every major holiday with the troops. But, I'll tell you this, Wolf... a photo-op visit, or whatever it was, to Baghdad does not make up for a failed strategy. What our troops really need is not a one or two hour morale boost visit from the President. They need a strategy for success, which this President hasn't given them."
