For those of you old enough and for those of you not old enough: always a bridesmaid, never a bride.

. . . . Colin Powell

My Lai. He was uninvolved in the atrocities. He was the head of the coverup team.

Iraq Invasion. He was opposed to it but was the Water Carrier In Chief to getting it started.

2. History

Colin Powell was charged with "investigating" the My Lai massacre. He was skillful in his covering up and framing the facts. Lt. Cally, a true scum, was hardly the top of the chain of command. Run this through your Googlemachine: "my lai colin powell" and fish around. Its all there. It is why he declined to run for president. Some memories are rightly long.

Powell's supposed credibility was his trade in selling the Iraq invasion at the UN. He Fucking Lied and he KNEW he fucking lied.

4. And he did the same about WMDs.

So why are there so many people who still think he's such a great guy?

5. R

His is willing to be one. The payback is institutionally obfuscated personal mythology.

3. He succeeded by making himself useful and his reward?

He was used. Willingly.

But you can only play the "I didn't know card" so often.

6. I have a friend who participated in the My Lai massacre

He didn't have to testify, but he gave a deposition incriminating others. And he wasn't in Lt. Calley's platoon.
