Powell was set up and he knows it...I will always think of Powell's presentation at the U.N. with fake diagrams of Iraq's hidden WMD!
He should've known better then and knows less now!
Nope.. Colin Powell didn't want to be president.
I'm not talking about Colin Powell wanting "to be" President, but whether or not he might have been willing to put his name forward as a losing candidate with aim of finishing respectably.
Working as political enhancement talent for the post-Trump GOP with the idea of finishing a respectable 2nd place.
Read Tom Rick's Fiasco book and then apologise for how much of an ass you made out of yourself spreading false information about a US War Hero on the day of his death..Powell went before the UN and deliberately stated lies to gin up support for starting the wars. I called bullshit back during the summer of ‘01.
Read 'Fiasco' by Tom Ricks... It is the best book on this...His photograph? Huh?
He was wrong... The intel was way off. The CIA relied on a source that fed them bullshit.
He admitted that in 2016:
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the founder of ISIS, was still an unknown jihadist during the run-up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Colin Powell's 2003 speech to the United Nations would help change that.www.pbs.org
At the time, you clearly are ignorant of this, Powell actually refused to make some of the more outlandish claims the CIA wanted him to make. This from 2012
I'm not sure what all liberals said. What I stated was that the WMDs were no threat to us. And they weren't.
Of course what you're doing now is trying to focus on this one topic while ignoring you're silly assed allegations of Powell just being an appointee and not earning that post. I'm sure you'll try to make some affirmative action statement or something as equally as baseless.
The claim that he was flim flammed has been made by apologists for some time. The notion is laughable, that an unprepossessing, naive, innocent could attain flag rank, be the chair of the joint chiefs, and secretary of state requires huge levels of willing gullibility.Read Tom Rick's Fiasco book and then apologise for how much of an ass you made out of yourself spreading false information about a US War Hero on the day of his death..
P.S. I didn't support the war... Did you?
You have called Powell names on this thread and spread lies about him...Secretary of State Blinken just embarrassed himself and the Biden administration through his comical attempt to honor Colin Powell.
Considering how great this man was, considering all the eloquent words spoken by Statesmen so far today, in his 1st words Blinken said of Powell:
- 'When having staff lunches Powell told his staff not to order special food, that burgers and hotdogs were fine...'
- 'When Powell got onto an elevator, he pulled others onto the elevator...'
