Talking Points Memo Interviews General Clark
Great and insightful interview of General Clark by talkingpointsmemo.com's Joshua Micah Marshall. Clark talks about deciding to become a Democrat, school choice, foreign relations, Iraq, North Korea, and much more. My favorite quote: "This administration thought it was better for the country to permit North Korea to go ahead with the nuclear development program rather than to talk to it. In other words, this administration was more worried about embarrassing itself in front of its right-wing base by talking to the North than it was in preventing the emergence of another nuclear-armed power that could proliferate nuclear weapons. It was a tragic--it will be, it's possible that it could be, a tragic miscalculation. And like much I see in this administration, it's an administration that's put politics over sound policy. "
