Tom Clancy declaims Iraq War, Richard Perle
CNN |
"[Bestselling author Tom Clancy] declined repeatedly to comment on the war, before saying that it lacked a 'casus belli,' or suitable provocation. 'It troubles me greatly to say that, because I've met President Bush,' Clancy said. 'He's a good guy... I think he's well-grounded, both morally and philosophically. But good men make mistakes.' ... Clancy recalled a prewar encounter in Washington during which he 'almost came to blows' with Richard Perle, a Pentagon adviser at the time and a longtime advocate of the invasion. 'He was saying how (Secretary of State) Colin Powell was being a wuss because he was overly concerned with the lives of the troops,' Clancy said. 'And I said, 'Look ..., he's supposed to think that way!' And Perle didn't agree with me on that. People like that worry me.'"
