Clark supports ban on flag burning
By Dana Hull
Mercury News

MANCHESTER, N.H. -Retired Gen. Wesley Clark said Tuesday that he supported a
proposed constitutional amendment that would ban desecrating the American
flag, a position that surprised some because he is a strong critic of the
Bush administration's attempt to stifle dissent about the Iraq war and flag
burning is largely seen by Democrats as an issue of free speech.

A World War II veteran asked Clark about the amendment during a Veterans Day
visit at the Manchester American Legion Hall.

"I'm absolutely in favor of anything that will strengthen the American
flag," said Clark, who stood on a chair and answered questions from the
crowd. "I'm in favor of the American flag amendment."
