What was with that bit last night about Judy
actually instructing the Dem candidates not to criticize Bush in their response anyway?
Note: Though the WaPost says this
is the "complete transcript", they've edited out his full answer when asked about the doctrine of preemption. Quel surprise.
The WashingtonPost has him answering: "Well Judy, people want leadership." What he really
said was the quote above WITH
"and just to pick up on what John Kerry said, this administration's preemptive doctrine is causing North Korea and Iran to accelerate their nuclear weapons development.
Now, there are some of us who aren't in Washington right now. But I'd like to ask all those who are -- let's see some leadership in the United States Congress. Let's see you take apart that doctrine of preemption now. I don't think we can wait until November of 2004 to change the administration on this threat. We're marching into another military campaign in the Middle East. We need to stop it." CNN has the full transcript here
My friend Samela had this to say about his comments: "As you know, the Bush Doctrine of preemption is highest on my targeted hit list of what needs to be expunged from this administration's legacy. And Clark hit on precisely the reason it is so dangerous: its logical outcome is the proliferation of nuclear weapons (N. Korea, Iran). The only way to control those situations is to rescind it immediately."
