Happy Anniversary Colin

Powell effectively de-legitimized the war’s opponents and turned the major U.S. news media into a virtual monolith of misguided consensus for the invasion.

Four years ago today, Colin Powell went to the floor of the United Nations and ruined his reputation, hopefully forever. Colin Powell should never be forgiven for telling bald faced lies about non-existent WMDs in Iraq. He now calls it a "blot" on his record. I'll say.

Powell is no dummy. I'm sure he rues the day he went to work for Bush. He would have been better off running for president and losing. Oh well, couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Making deals with the devil never works out.
