WASHINGTON, April 1 (UPI) -- Retired Gen. Wesley Clark, saying the Bush administration's polices have "taken us on a path to nowhere," touted a Democratic plan to revamp U.S. security.

Clark was among several high-profile Democrats who this week announced the party's plan to make the United States safer. The announcement involved making 2006 a "decisive" year in Iraq and having every cargo container entering the United States screened. It also involved bashing of security measures taken by U.S. President George Bush.

"This administration has taken us on a path to nowhere -- replete with hyped intelligence, macho slogans and an incredible failure to see the obvious," Clark said in the Democrat's Saturday radio address. "It started with a fight we didn't finish against Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan and included a war we didn't have to fight in Iraq."

Clark also offered highlights of the Democrats' security plan, including a program to help the Iraqis form a government, then "responsibly redeploy American troops," increase efforts to find bin Laden and establish policies to halt proliferation of nuclear weapons and biological weapons.
