Megyn Kelly tonight pressed retired four-star Gen. Wesley Clark on the threat of radical Islam.

Clark said that while there is a threat from extremist interpretations of Islam, it’s also true that there’s a geo-strategic struggle going on in the Middle East right now.

“You’re not going to deal effectively with this threat unless you understand what the source of it is. It’s not just the zealousness of radical Islam. It’s fed and fueled by the geo-strategic ambitions of powers in the region,” Clark said.

Kelly asked Clark: Why won’t the administration refer to this as radical Islam?

“You’re going to have to ask the spokesman for the administration,” he said.

“Are they wrong not to […] are they being too politically correct?” Kelly asked.
