That's sad. The one sensible, moderating voice in GWB's administration, I suspect because he knew what it was like being at war. RIP.

Spoilt his career by lying about Iraq having WMD, I remember footage of him showing UN Security Council dodgy satellite pics claiming they showed places where weapons were hidden and the UN weapons inspector Hans Blick saying it just wasn't true.

Whilst I will never celebrate the death of another, Colin Powell was another Neocon complicit in the Bush era hawkish policy of foreign intervention. I can't bring myself to be too upset given the pain and suffering his administration has wrought on the planet.

Yes. I remember him doing that presentation showing trucks with metal vats on them that he said were for biological warfare. It was risible. A five year could see that it was all lies. But he went along with it.
