He is good at political boot licking but I doubt anybody in the military gave him any information after he was relieved of command in Kosovo.
I think Clark's claims that he was told 7 countries were to be taken out in regime changes is accurate though. If anything, his testimony on that claim has been corroborated with other written documents such as the Clean Break paper and PNAC memo. No one is an idiot all the time.
I do agree he can lick boots politically because he has somewhat shifted his stand now that a Democrat is in office. So his motive was probably just partisan politics.
