Wesley Clark is a former NATO general and was Commander-in-Chief of the US Army in Europe. In 1999, Clark was also Commander-in-Chief of NATO forces in the Kosovo War. In 2004, he sought the US Democratic presidential nomination but failed.
In 2007, he gave a speech at the Commonwealth Club of California, an influential US think tank. He recounts how, 10 days after the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001, he learned of the Pentagon’s plan to invade seven countries in the Middle East under the guise of fighting terrorism, most of which came to pass. He speaks of a political coup by Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz and Dick Cheney, who are essentially responsible for directing these military interventions.
