Not Listening to McNamara’s Band:

The man who oversaw sending half-a-million soldiers to Vietnam in the 1960s and then revealed a decade ago that he didn?¢â??¬â??¢t believe in the U.S. policy there is at it again. Former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara said in an interview with the Financial Times this week that the Bush Administration?¢â??¬â??¢s policy toward Iran and North Korea is misguided and that the U.S. should assure North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il it does not want to see him out of power. ?¢â??¬???I don?¢â??¬â??¢t see any reason that the U.S. shouldn?¢â??¬â??¢t make clear that regime change (in North Korea) is not our objective,?¢â??¬  said McNamara. Asked by HUMAN EVENTS?¢â??¬â??¢ John Gizzi what the President thought of the criticism from the 89-year-old McNamara, White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan shrugged and said, ?¢â??¬???I don?¢â??¬â??¢t know. He hasn?¢â??¬â??¢t discussed it with me.?¢â??¬ 
