46. You got it right. WH had Powell lied to so he could work on convincing Senate Dems to support IWR
and do it with his integrity on the line. Biden and Powell were really close, and BushInc used Powell to convince him and other senators that they should vote for IWR because there would be no rush to war and that it could still be avoided.
