Clark Proposes Joint Venture With Saudis Against Al Qaeda

Gen. Wesley K. Clark sharply criticized the Bush administration on Wednesday for failing in the hunt for Osama bin Laden and proposed deployment of a joint American-Saudi Arabian commando force to search the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region for the Qaeda terrorist organization. General Clark, the former Supreme Commander of NATO forces in Europe who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, said that the administration was right to go after Mr. bin Laden in Afghanistan after Sept. 11, 2001, and that “I supported them fully.” “But today,” he added, “more than two years after Sept. 11, they still haven’t finished the job that we started then.” He said: “We haven’t found the last Al Qaeda cell. We haven’t found Osama bin Laden. And every day, Americans live at risk because of this failure. Instead of ferreting out Al Qaeda, the administration focused its energy and resources on Iraq. It’s been a world-class bait-and-switch.” Full Story
