    I don't recall him saying that.

      one of many out there documenting just how much of a liar Powell really is.

        A diplomat is someone who travels abroad to lie for the good of his country. But I guess we can eliminate the last few words from that saying when it comes to Powell. In any case, Powell probably could not have stopped the war, although clearly he could have at least stepped down as SS, and would have retained his integrity.
