  •  Powell and Tenet were tasked with the UN.... (1+ / 0-)

    ...for at least 2 reasons. First, that they were the ones pushing back on the plan to go to war so they were at once punished and pushed into public compliance. It was a most artful diabolical move, on Cheney's part, I assume. Second, the most obvious reason, that they were the only inner circle members with any cred.

    Powell knew when he gave the speech why he was there and that he had nothing but unsubstantiated bureaucratic assurances - not enough to send soldiers into war.

    When he chooses his pledge over his president, his nation over his job, when he shares his rage and reaches for enough vengeance to right the record maybe his appearances will seem less smarmy and his legacy clarified just a little bit.

    In the meantime his brushing himself off comment and motivational pro insistence that it's in the past and he has to go on made my stomach twist a little and choke up scenes of millions  forever maimed, devastated, or dead.

    Eliminate the Bush tax cuts Eliminate Afghan and Iraq wars Do these things first before considering any cuts
