    I consider Colin Powell a great American patriot.

    Powell was against the 1st Gulf war and when it turned out well he took credit for the victory so maybe nobody bothered soliciting his opinion. Bush told the whole freaking world that Saddam was living on borrowed time for violating UN sanctions. What did Powell think was going to happen? Congress gave permission for boots on the ground, presumably after some discussion and investigation, and a resolution was passed. If nobody talked to Powell it's his own damned fault.

    Whatever that Powell's story he's entitled to it Dan Rather still claims his memo gate story is the truth I don't buy that either.
