"There are any number of things we could do that [would have been] successful that weren't done," Clark added, pointing out that the United States chose not to intervene against dictators in Liberia and Sierra Leone. "It just so happened that this administration chose to go into Iraq when there was apparently still no evidence of weapons of mass destruction."
