General Wesley Clark, and 2004 presidential candidate, had an op-ed piece in today's USA Today. The article is entitled, "The Next Move." In it, Clark lays out his plan for Iraq. He writes:
The right approach is a coordinated diplomatic, legal, economic and security campaign drawing upon broader dialogue in the region and intensified political work inside Iraq.
Here is how to do this:
•Establish an effective, sustained shuttle diplomacy within the region.
•Form a high-level interagency diplomatic team, representing the White House and secretaries of State and Defense and led by an experienced, respected diplomat.
•Begin talks within Iraq, and with all its neighbors, based on a clear set of principles outlined by the team. The goal would be to seek the commitments necessary to achieve our aims inside Iraq and also advance U.S. interests in the region.
