November 16, 2003, from Betsy Stang
"I just checked your site and saw the updated chart. Thank you. I did speak to General Clark and he did say that was his time of birth to the best of his recollection. I would suggest a rectification based on biographical info which I believe Stariq is also working on." -- Betsy Stang

"Posted in TT; "For what it's worth, I don't know how accurate this is, but while doing some googling recently i came across a site called StarIQ, and some poster giving feedback on an article said she had "just spoken to Wes Clark" and he's pretty sure his birth time is 5:43 a.m. The person's name was Betsy Stang (email@example.com)." .Stariq. It gives him 28 Scorpio ascendant with 13 Virgo MC. I haven't done the transits and progressions yet. He has a lot of of common elements with John Kerry the other Vietnam vet." -- [Use data with caution until we get final confirmation. -- Starcats]
Sophie Anne Jensen and Cyndifrog advised me that Wes Clark was not born in Little Rock, Arkansas, but in Chicago, Illinois. My thanks to both Sophie and Cyndifrog for calling this to my attention. -- Starcats, 9-20-03
