If Powell felt that Bush henchmen had formed a separate government
Edited on Sun Apr-18-04 07:36 PM by keithyboy
then Powell is guilty of treason for not exposing them.

"Powell felt Cheney and his allies -- his chief aide, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby; Deputy Defense Secretary Paul D. Wolfowitz; and Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas J. Feith and what Powell called Feith's "Gestapo" office -- had established what amounted to a separate government. The vice president, for his part, believed Powell was mainly concerned with his own popularity and told friends at a dinner he hosted a year ago celebrating the outcome of the war that Powell was a problem and "always had major reservations about what we were trying to do."

2. He has been a real disappointment
but then I guess he was never the guy many mistook him to be.

3. Powell swept it under the rug ...
Just like he did with the My Lai Massacre in 1969. Out of sight, out of mind. Works fine for Colin.

4. He's made his bones covering up war crimes
like My Lai.

Each time he has been rewarded.

Why does anyone think he would be any different now.

Oh, and that son of his, Michael? Ya know the one in charge of the FCC?

The surprise at the mendacity and evil of the Powells always surprises me.
