Gen. Wesley Clark joined me for a few minutes on Oct 24th, while he was in Los Angeles to meet with the 4 Star Democratic Club of Los Angeles. The main topic of discussion was torture and he expressed his feelings on that issue-including his disappointment over Dick Cheney's role to promote it. I wish I had talked with Mr. Clark after we had learned of the newly discovered secret prisons. It's important to hear his opinions on this vital topic now more than ever because this issue is so damaging to our country.

(Update): blah3 has a partial transcript up

(Tech note): The phone connection was cutting in and out because Mr. Clark was in LAX-so I tried to edit out some of the distortions when I lost the connection. Nothing that General Clark said was altered even though some of my edits weren't precise. (I just got the trial version of Adobe Audition)
