CHAT PARTICIPANT: Do you think the press is being unfair and asking too may detailed questions?
CLARK: No, I think the press questioning is essential in a democracy. People are curious, and have every right to be. In this war, failure is not an option, and the press is a primary means of holding the government accountable. The only concern would be whether the government spokesmen release information that may compromise ongoing operations, and I’ve seen no indication of that.
