Wesley Clark

Many people have recently added comments to this page criticizing the author for having the audacity to be critical of Clark. To those I say check out Clark carefully. Read the CounterPoint article or the one from Insitemag. Read what British General Sir Mike Jackson had to say to Clark when he ordered him to send assault troops to prevent Russian troops from taking over the airfield of Kosovo's provincial capital. Read what David Hackworth says about Clark ... Some have said that Clark is the way the elites in the Democratic party hope to get rid of Dean who has made a mockery of the elite’s acceptable candidates – Kerry and Lieberman. Read what William Safire has to say about the Clark candidacy. This page has been here well before Clark declared himself as a candidate for President on the Democratic ticket – and will probably be here well after the election in 2004. There are lots of Pro-Clark sites - perhaps this page will cause some to start asking questions about Clark's history - and perhaps not be so anxious to put all their hopes in one person. Americans – you need to start thinking for yourselves and realize that you are being coned by a few people who control the two national parties.

Less than 18 months ago, Wesley Clark offered his testimony before the Committee On Armed Services at the U.S. House Of Representatives. "There's no requirement to have any doctrine here. I mean this is simply a long-standing right of the United States and other nations to take the actions they deem necessary in their self defense," Clark told Congress on September 26, 2002.

"Every president has deployed forces as necessary to take action. He's done so without multilateral support if necessary. He's done so in advance of conflict if necessary. . .

Clark continued: "There's no question that Saddam Hussein is a threat... Yes, he has chemical and biological weapons. He's had those for a long time. But the United States right now is on a very much different defensive posture than we were before September 11th of 2001. . .

More Clark: "And, I want to underscore that I think the United States should not categorize this action as preemptive. Preemptive and that doctrine has nothing whatsoever to do with this problem. As Richard Perle so eloquently pointed out, this is a problem that's longstanding. It's been a decade in the making. It needs to be dealt with and the clock is ticking on this."

WESLEY CLARK WAR CRIMINAL AND SUPPORTER OF TERRORISTS - This site is dedicated to exposing WESLEY CLARK as a MASS MURDERER and SUPPORTER OF TERRORISM. Within this site, you will find dozens of articles exposing Clark as a man who aided a Terrorist group with ties to Osama Bin Laden.

"And I'm very glad we've got the great team in office, men like Colin Powell, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice... people I know very well - our president George W. Bush. We need them there." - Clark in remarks delivered at the Pulaski County GOP Lincoln Day Dinner in Little Rock, Arkansas on May 11, 2001 [drudge]

When at a forum in September, retired Gen. Hugh Shelton was asked if he would support retired Gen. Wesley Clark for president, Shelton, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, quickly took a drink of water. "That question makes me wish it were vodka," Shelton said. "I've known Wes for a long time. I will tell you the reason he came out of Europe early had to do with integrity and character issues, things that are very near and dear to my heart. I'm not going to say whether I'm a Republican or a Democrat. I'll just say Wes won't get my vote."

Which was bad enough, but on November 6, retired Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf appeared on CNBC's Capital Report, hosted by Gloria Borger and Alan Murray, who asked him what he thought of Clark. "I think the greatest condemnation against him . . . came from the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff when he was a NATO commander. I mean, he was fired as a NATO commander," Schwarzkopf replied, "and when Hugh Shelton said he was fired because of matters of character and integrity, that is a very, very damning statement, which says, `If that's the case, he's not the right man for president,' as far as I'm concerned."

Wesley Clark ... a War Criminal?


A panel of 16 judges from 11 countries at a people’s tribunal meeting in New York June 10 before 500 people found U.S. and NATO political and military leaders guilty of war crimes against Yugoslavia in the March 24-June 10, 1999 assault on that country. Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, the lead prosecutor at the International Tribunal on U.S./NATO War Crimes Against Yugoslavia, urged those present and those they represented from the 21 countries participating to carry out a sentence of organizing a campaign to abolish the NATO military pact. WAR CRIMES TRIBUNAL FINDS U.S. AND NATO GUILTY

Extra! July/August 1999 Legitimate Targets? How U.S. Media Supported War Crimes in Yugoslavia - By Jim Naureckas
NATO justified the bombing of the Belgrade TV station, saying it was a legitimate military target. "We've struck at his TV stations and transmitters because they're as much a part of his military machine prolonging and promoting this conflict as his army and security forces," U.S. General Wesley Clark explained--"his," of course, referring to Yugoslavian President Slobodan Milosevic. It wasn't Milosevic, however, who was killed when the Belgrade studios were bombed on April 23, but rather 20 journalists, technicians and other civilians.

Clark's logic is exactly the same as that of the death squad commander who orders the assassination of a journalist or a publisher whose opposition newspaper supports the goals of a guerrilla movement. The targeting of the studio was a war crime, perhaps the most indisputable of several war crimes committed by NATO in its war against Yugoslavia.

------------

"There are an awful lot of people," a retired four-star general told the Washington Post, "who believe Wes will tell anybody what they want to hear and tell somebody the exact opposite five minutes later." ...

FAIR, the media watchdog, dug up some of Clark's former columns on the war in Iraq.

"Let's have those parades on the Mall and down Constitution Avenue," Clark wrote on April 10th in The Times of London.

"American military power," he crowed, the next day, in the same paper, "especially when buttressed by Britain's, is virtually unchallengeable today."

What was Clark's involement in the massacre at Waco?

From insightmag.com, Oct. 15, 2003 - Clark Tanks Rolled Into Mount Carmel

Those seeking an investigation of his part in the Waco outrage say that Clark not only played a hidden role in the military-style assault on the Branch Davidians, but easily could have refused to participate in what was a clear violation of the Posse Comitatus Act that bars use of the U.S. military for civilian law-enforcement activities.

Although Clark never publicly has discussed his role in the attack on the Branch Davidians and did not respond to Insight's requests for an interview to discuss his role at Waco, there are indisputable facts that confirm he had knowledge of the grim plans to bring the standoff to an end. Between August 1992 and April 1994, Clark was commander of the 1st Cavalry Division of the Army's III Corps at Fort Hood, Texas. According to a report by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the list of military personnel and equipment used at Waco included: 15 active-duty military personnel, 13 Texas National Guard personnel, nine Bradley fighting vehicles, five combat-engineer vehicles, one tank-retrieval vehicle and two M1A1 Abrams tanks. Additionally, Fort Hood reportedly was used for much of the training for the bloody attack on the Davidians and their children.

Based on the fact that military equipment from Fort Hood was used in the siege and that training was provided there, say critics, it is clear the commanding officer of the 1st Cavalry had direct knowledge of the attack and, more likely than not, was involved in the tactical planning.

CLARK WAS BIG ADVOCATE OF BOMBING VIEQUES

DEBORAH ORIN & VINCENT MORRIS, NY POST - Wesley Clark was an ardent advocate of live-fire bombing on the Puerto Rican island of Vieques - putting him at odds with virtually every Democrat in New York, The Post has learned. It also puts Clark in conflict on the emotional issue with one of his most important backers in Congress - Rep. Charles Rangel (D-Manhattan). Rangel said the revelation would not stop him from supporting Clark, but added, "I hope that when he's elected, over a drink I can give him hell over
Vieques."

. . . "I fully support every possible effort to continue the training at Vieques," Clark told the Senate Armed Services Committee in February 2000. "To provide our soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen with less than this optimum training in the future would be unconscionable, cause undue casualties and place our nation's vital interests at risk," he wrote in 1999.

During the Clinton administration, Clark opposed a four-month bombing moratorium, claiming that sailors and Marines "may not be fully combat ready" without Vieques' "realistic live-fire strike-warfare training."

The guy who almost started World War III?

From The Guardian, Tuesday August 3, 1999:

"I'm not going to start the third world war for you," General Sir Mike Jackson, commander of the international K-For peacekeeping force, is reported to have told Gen Clark when he refused to accept an order to send assault troops to prevent Russian troops from taking over the airfield of Kosovo's provincial capital. - Robertson's plum job in a warring Nato

No sooner are we told by Britain's top generals that the Russians played a crucial role in ending the west's war against Yugoslavia than we learn that if Nato's supreme commander, the American General Wesley Clark, had had his way, British paratroopers would have stormed Pristina airport threatening to unleash the most frightening crisis with Moscow since the end of the cold war.

Mary Robinson, the UN human rights commissioner, said Nato's bombing campaign had lost its "moral purpose". Referring to the cluster bomb attack on residential areas and market in the Serbian town of Nis, she described Nato's range of targets as "very broad" and "almost unfocused". There were too many mistakes; the bombing of the Serbian television station in Belgrade - which killed a make-up woman, among others - was "not acceptable". No blood money by Richard Norton-Taylor on the moral confusion of Nato, which refuses compensation to the innocent people it bombed.

Meet the Real Gen. Clark - [at counterpunch.org]

"The poster child for everything that is wrong with the GO (general officer) corps," exclaims one colonel, who has had occasion to observe Clark in action, citing, among other examples, his command of the 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Hood from 1992 to 1994

"At the beginning of the Kosovo conflict,CounterPunch delved into the military career of General Wesley Clark and discovered that his meteoric rise through the ranks derived from the successful manipulation of appearances: faking the results of combat exercises, greasing to superiors and other practices common to the general officer corps. We correctly predicted that the unspinnable realities of a real war would cause him to become unhinged. Given that Clark attempted to bomb the CNN bureau in Belgrade and ordered the British General Michael Jackson to engage Russian troops in combat at the end of the war, we feel events amply vindicated our forecast.

With the end of hostilities it has become clear even to Clark that most people, apart from some fanatical members of the war party in the White House and State Department, consider the general, as one Pentagon official puts it, "a horse's ass". Defense Secretary William Cohen is known to loathe him, and has seen to it that the Hammer of the Serbs will be relieved of the Nato command two months early.

From someone who claims to have served under Clark ...

HAVING SERVED UNDER THIS SELF CENTRED, AND MOST HATED GENERAL I HAVE EVER KNOWN, IT STRIKES ME TO THE CORE, THAT HE FOR ONE MOMENT FEELS HE IS EVEN REMOTELY QUALIFIED TO BECOME PRESIDENT.

HE WAS COMMANDER OF WHAT IS CONSIDERED A BACK WATER COMMAND IN PANAMA-USSOUTHCOM, AND EVERY EFFORT HE MADE FAILED DURING OUR LAST ATTEMPTS TO SALVAGE THE PANAMA CANAL, AND PREVENT IT FROM BECOMING WHAT IT IS TODAY..CHINA FORWARD!

ASK HIS STAFF MEMBERS ABOUT HIM, AND PLEASE DO NOT GET CONFUSED WITH WARRIOR SPIRIT, AGGRESSIVE LEADER, AND GREAT THINKER, WITH THIS GUY, IT WAS AND REMAINS ME FIRST, HE SPELLS TEAM WITH AN I, AND BLAMES HIS STAFF FOR HIS FAILURES, THIS IS TRUE, JUST ASK THOSE WHO SERVED UNDER HIM.

AS A NATION WE MUST GET AWAY FROM THINKING THAT 4 STAR GENERALS CAN SUDDENLY MORPH INTO POLITICIANS AND LEADERS OF NATIONS, SHORT A DICTATOR. I AM SORRY TO SAY OUR FOREIGN POLICY IS IN A MESS DUE TO COLIN POWELL'S INABILITY (FORGET DESERT STORM) TO MOVE NATIONS, INSTEAD OF MOVING DIVISIONS AROUND A VAST DESERT.

I FIND IT STRIKING ALSO THAT WE AS A NATION AFTER THAT MESS WE HAVE FOUND OURSELVES IN IN IRAQ WOULD EVEN CONSIDER TURNING TO A FORMER MILITARY GENERAL OF ANY SORT TO GET US OUT OF THE QUAGMIRE WE FACE NOW. THIS DOES NOT SAY MUCH ABOUT THE AVERAGE VOTERS COGNOSCENTE THINKING OF WHAT IS GOING ON AROUND THEM I AM SORRY TO SAY.

For those in the audience who did not have a flier, I began to explain the picture which showed General Clark in a congratulatory handshake with Hashim Thaci, leader of the KLA, which under the noses of KFOR had murdered or ethnically cleansed thousands of Kosovo Serbs and had destroyed more Orthodox Christian churches and monasteries than were destroyed in 500 years under the Ottoman Empire. Next to Thaci was Bernard Kouchner, Chief U.N. administrator in Kosovo, British General Sir Michael Jackson, and Agim Ceku, who commanded the Croatian Army in "Operation Storm" that ethnically cleansed 250,000 Serbs from Krajina and murdered thousands and who now commands the Kosovo Protection Corps (KPC), the thinly disguised successor to the KLA. It should be noted that the KLA, with whom we allied ourselves, at one time was designated by the U.S. State Department as a terrorist organization. Of course, this is the same KLA about whom Senator Joe Lieberman said: "The United States of America and the Kosovo Liberation Army stand for the same values and principles . . . Fighting for the KLA is fighting for human rights and American values." (Washington Post, Apr.28, 1999).

Wesley Clark Fights On and On [freerepublic.com]


ROBERT NOVAK: Members of Congress who, during their spring recess, met in Brussels with Gen. Wesley Clark, the NATO supreme commander, were startled by his bellicosity. According to the lawmakers, Clark suggested the best way to handle Russia's supply of oil to Yugoslavia would be aerial bombardment of the pipeline that runs through Hungary. He also proposed bombing Russian warships that enter the battle zone. The American general was described by the members of the congressional delegation as waging a personal vendetta against Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic. "I think the general might need a little sleep," commented one House member.-Balkan News from The Progressive Review

"I am a kind of hard-nosed, dusty boots armor man who knows what it takes to maneuver men," Clark said.

Clark is a longtime friend of Clinton and his current position has more to do with his political flexibility than his war making prowess. He is reportedly referred to as the " Supreme Being " by the more earnest soldiers under his command.
From ... did anyone else notice that Clark was commanding Fort Hood, Texas during the Waco incident? Most (if not all) of the illegal military hardware and personnel used against the women and children at Waco came from Fort Hood, Texas

"Known by those who've served with him as the "Ultimate Perfumed Prince," he's far more comfortable in a drawing room discussing political theories than hunkering down in the trenches where bullets fly and soldiers die." - CLARK AND VIETNAM - DEFENDING AMERICA by David H. Hackworth, April 20, 1999 - ( If you want to be fair, you should note on your Clark page that David Hackworth has revised his opinion of Clark in his 9/22/03 column. - from Michael A)

"He says the basic problem with US armed forces is that selfless grunts willing to die for their country are being sold out by selfish "perfumed princes" like Colin Powell and Norman Schwartzkopf with the blessing of "morally corrupt" political leaders from the president on down. He says we can have a far more efficient fighting force and still cut the military budget from US$300 billion to $150 to $200 billion, if we consolidate our four military services into one, pull out of Korea and Europe (which can defend themselves), and stop procuring expensive high-tech weapons systems we don't need. Noise - Hackworth talks about his new book Hazardous Duty, which he describes as an attempt to "wake up America" about our urgent need to reform the military.

What role did Nato's top commander have in the FBI's ill-fated raid on the Branch Davidians compound outside Waco, Texas? Was Clark at Waco?

Clark was born on 23 December 1944 and grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas. He is married to the former Gertrude Kingston of Brooklyn, New York. He and his wife have one son, Wesley, who lives in California. *

Military Bio for GEN Wesley K. Clark USA [eucom.mil] "... General Wesley K. Clark, U.S. Army, became the Commander in Chief of the United States European Command on 10 July 1997....a 1966 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, where he graduated first in his class. He holds a master's degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Oxford University where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar (August 1966-August 1968). He is a graduate of the National War College, Command and General Staff College, Armor Officer Advanced and Basic Courses, and Ranger and Airborne schools. General Clark was a White House Fellow in 1975-1976 and served as a Special Assistant to the Director of the Office of Management and Budget. He has also served as an instructor and later Assistant Professor of Social Science at the United States Military Academy. Clark grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas"

Gen. Wesley K. Clark (ret.) [http://wesleyclark.h1.ru/] ... JUN 26 - NOV 5, 2000 Gen. Clark: According to The Times, former SACEUR Gen. Clark "has fired a bitter parting shot" at his Pentagon bosses, suggesting that the United States is being weakened by fear of battlefield casualties. At a ceremony marking his retirement from the U.S. Army last Friday, Gen. Clark reportedly unleashed a thinly veiled attack on Washington leaders for shying away from bold action that could lead to loss of life. "What better to fight for than what you believe in and value?", he asked at the military ceremony at Fort Meyer, Washington. The time had come for the army leadership to develop "a new mentality," he said, adding: "Give us a mission and send us in." The newspaper notes Gen. Clark is now writing his memoirs and suggests these are sure to bring him into dispute again with the Pentagon and his former superiors. The July 3 edition of U.S. News & World Report notes Gen. Clark has obtained a job analyzing technology firms for an investment bank in Arkansas and has several corporate-board offers. But the weekly adds, "the worry in Washington is whether Clark, said to have railed on Pentagon brass for micromanaging the (Kosovo conflict), will publicly unload on them."
