16. Oh, but he has......
This week-end--
"Ticking off a laundry list of the actions America has taken since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, specifically the search for chemical, biological and nuclear weapons 'with which the invasion was justified,' Clark said, 'we found no weapons of mass destruction...the incidents of terrorism around the world have increased year by year...and the good name of the U.S. has been blemished by the invasion.'

"The crowd of at least 2,000 gave Clark a standing ovation at the school's 119th commencement excercises, as well as uproarious applause when he asserted that when it comes to defending the nation we should 'use force only, only, only as a last resort.'"

Wesley Clark speaks at RPI

General Wesley Clark is receiving an award from RPI. The former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO got the honorary degree from the prestigious college.

But while here, the retired-four-star general gave his opinions on the War in Iraq and the Bush Administration.

He sat down with our Brian Taffe on Capital Tonight.

Clark made it clear that he thinks the President had an agenda to attack Iraq.

He even referred to the September 11th attacks as a convenient excuse for the attack.

"Ten days after 9/11 they told me, the generals told me, the decision has been made, we are going to invade Iraq, Clark said. Of course it wasn't a public decision. Of course President Bush wouldn't admit that was the decision that was made, but that was the decision that was made."

General Clark was also the first of eight retired generals who have called for the resignation of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

Clark also gave the commencement speech at RPI's graduation ceremony today.

Video available at the Capitalnews9 site as well.
