I’ve never liked Colin Powell. I always viewed him as a political hack, despite his military chops. My dislike for him increased exponentially when I read one of Bob Woodward’s hatchet jobs on George W. Bush and quickly realized that Powell was Woodward’s main source. Although Woodward didn’t say that, it didn’t take a genius to figure out that all the passages lambasting Bush and highlighting Powell’s brilliance and prescience came from Powell himself. He’s a sneaky bastard, and I don’t say that as a backhanded compliment.
Powell’s sneaky bastardness continues unabated in his current attack on Cheney. Aside from being a full frontal attack, it turns out, as Jennifer Rubin explains, that it’s predicated entirely on lies and, worse, on lies that are meant to obscure Powell’s own reprehensible behavior.Email This Post To A Friend
