As most know Wes Clark gave what has come to be called The REAL State of the Union Speech
on 1/30/06 at The New America Foundation.
WesPac distributed the written version to it's email list. Last night Wes Clark told me they had also sent it to all the office holders.
Today I wanted to see the speech but Securing America is out of bandwidth. Using an alternate route I stripped the audio and loaded it into my main blog at The Political Dogfight. This is a Flash version with no download time. It is 55 minutes. There is also an mp3 version for iPods etc. (Unfortunately the server I am using is optimized for IE 6.0+ only so FireFox users, like me, grit your teeth and open the IE!)
With so much controversy over his appearance in Los Angeles yesterday I thought I would be useful to present his actual speech, with Q &A period, so that people could hear it for themselves. Yesterdays speech will be available as soon as I can get the audio. Enjoy.
PS: on the Flip
PS: Some of you won't like his Middle East analysis. Yet two things:
A. Personally, whether I like it or not, I think it's probably realistic.
B. The best anyone can hope for in a leader is about 80% agreement on issues etc. Very few time will anyone really agree 100% of the time. That's also a realistic view.
