Wes Clark's campaign

Posted By on Fri, Aug 25, 2006 at 8:57 AM

Margaret Carlson writes this week about Democratic war vets taking on Republican chickenhawks in congressional races, with support from another vet from around here, Wesley Clark. In addition to details on some slimy stunts by chickenhawks, the column says:

``These veterans want to win the war on terror,'' Clark said during an appearance at the Amagansett (New York) American Legion Hall in mid-August. ``They just don't believe the Iraq war is the way to do it.'' ...

A poll released this week showed a public growing weary of the administration's efforts to merge the war in Iraq with the war on terror. Voters may take the word of candidates who have fought there: Criticism of the Iraq war doesn't mean weakness on the fight against terror. Then we could have a real debate on just who has made the world a more dangerous place.
