Today, Wesley Clark is campaigning for Alexi Giannoulias. Interestingly, though, it is Giannoulias’s opponent in the Illinois Senate race, Republican congressman Mark Kirk, who goes back a long way with the former Army general, Clark.
Kirk has been a naval intelligence officer for over twenty years. A Kirk ally points out that more than a decade ago, Clark met Lieutenant Commander Kirk:
The Navy even gave Kirk a commendation medal for his efforts in operation Allied Force.
What was Alexi doing back then? He was wearing a Greek basketball uniform when he played for Panionios B.C.
