There is a lot to write today, but my real job is getting in the way. I thought this was interesting though and feel the need to NOT defend Colin Powell, who seems to want to rewrite history.
Colin Powell is trying to have this both ways in my opinion. Sure, he is the least evil person in this administration that took us to war, but I am not sure I believe this report. Powell is said to have "tried to avoid the war" discussing the Iraq war at the Aspen Ideas festival in Colorado. After all, if Powell did not really want to go to war, would he have made that shameful speech before the United Nations that spun the nation in favor of war? His credibility along with his likeability shifted public opinion or at least gave this bizarre administration some moderate credibility.
I don't believe him and Powell seems to be rewriting history, probably thinking, what the fuck was I thinking?
