Colin Powell – “American Hero”. What rot. Powell once again exhibits his spinelessness by stating that it wouldn’t have been “that hard” for Bush to legally secure warrants for the illegal eavesdropping his administration has been doing but that he sees “nothing wrong” with the eavesdropping. Once again he talks out of both sides of his mouth, wouldn’t want to offend the powerful by speaking truth to power.
Powell has made his career by carrying water for those in positions of power for whom he worked, from covering up the My Lai massacre to lying to the U. N. to justify conquering Iraq.
