Clark cites Constitution to defend Iranian trip
Ramsey Clark repeated Monday that he had a legal right to go to Iran to attend a "Crimes of America" conference. At a news conference in Manhattan the former attorney general said that "the ultimate un-American act" would have been not to go to Iran. He cited the Magna Carta and the US Constitution as the legal basis for the trip.
Mr. Clark renewed his call for a congressional inquiry into America's alleged involvement in Iran and said he would launch his own inquiry "if that's the best we could do."
