DescriptionCongressional testimony by Wesley Clark in fall 2002 contradicts the early antiwar stance the candidate has promoted since entering the race last summer.
At a hearing of the House Armed Services Committee in September 2002, Mr. Clark expressed no misgivings about the imminent war with Iraq and called deposed dictator Saddam Hussein a credible threat to the United States. Since then, Mr. Clark has proclaimed his strong opposition to the war "from the beginning," and has continued to state that position at debates and events nationwide.
"He is, as far as we know, actively pursuing nuclear capabilities, though he doesn't have nuclear warheads yet.

A transcript of the testimony was posted early yesterday on the widely read Drudge Report on the Internet.
