Clark on the war

Posted By on Tue, Mar 25, 2008 at 11:28 AM

 

 



Gen. Wesley Clark, interviewed by Tavis Smiley Monday night on PBS, said President Bush does bears responsibility for the travesty that is the Iraq war, but that the burden doesn't compare to that suffered by the families of the soldiers on (and in) the ground.

EXPLAINER: The reference to a "burden" so hastily blogged here needs further explanation, the rapid response team says. It is this: In exclusive last night on ABC, Vice President Dick Cheney said of the burden placed on military families:

"The president carries the biggest burden, obviously," Cheney said. "He's the one who has to make the decision to commit young Americans, but we are fortunate to have a group of men and women, the all-volunteer force, who voluntarily put on the uniform and go in harm's way for the rest of us."
