In an interview with MSNBCâ€™s Thomas Roberts in the wake of the mass shooting in Chatanooga, Tennessee, former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO and Democratic candidate for president in 2008 Wesley Clark said that during World War II, â€śif someone supported Nazi Germany at the expense of the United States, we didnâ€™t say that was freedom of speech, we put him in a camp, they were prisoners of war.â€ť
WESLEY CLARK: If these people are radicalized and donâ€™t support the United States, and theyâ€™re disloyal to the United States, as a matter of principal thatâ€™s fine, thatâ€™s their right. Itâ€™s our right and our obligation to segregate them from the normal community for the duration of the conflict.
â€śWe have got to identify the people who are most likely to be radicalized. Weâ€™ve got to cut this off at the beginning,â€ť Clark said. â€śI do think on a national policy level we need to look at what self-radicalization means because we are at war with this group of terrorists.â€ť
