WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON: Four years ago, a very brave
General proved that more than one Clark can be a Superman.

U.S. 4 star General Wesley Clark (Ret.) explained to Amy Goodman of Democracy Now on March 2, 2007 (see video) that the Bush Administration planned to take out 7 countries in 5 years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran (2007 up to 2012).

What happened with Tunisia and then Egypt? (They must have been bonuses.)

You usually don't think of any General as being the average whistle-blower, but that's just what happened in 2007. There was little reaction from it at the time, but now that recent events have reflected what he said back then, Clark's shocking comments - once labeled as mere hyperbole - are back in the spotlight and being taken seriously.

Also, regarding 9/11, in a video interview on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos for March 5, 2006, Clark said, "I think when you look at this country, right now, we need a 2-party system that works. We need Congress to do its job. We need real investigation of some of the abuses of authority that are apparently going on at the Executive branch. ... We've never finished the investigation of 9/11 and whether the administration actually misused the intelligence information it had.

"The evidence seems pretty clear to me. I've seen that for a long time."

Gen. Clark's courage in revealing this material is to be soundly commended. Sure, Truthers and other similar folks have been insisting since the last quarter of the 20th century that the main factor motivating US troop movements throughout the middle east has been greed for oil.

But this is one of those rare times when an actual General - and a highly respected one at that - has ever publicly agreed with such a position, and was shown to be 100% correct. Plus he also doesn't buy the phony baloney commission report on 9/11.

Bravo, Gen. Clark!
