Creative Revisionism Continues

And here is a new blast from Colin Powell:

"Colin Powell says his erroneous address to the United Nations about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction provides a lesson to business leaders on the importance of staying skeptical and following their intuition.

“Yes, a blot, a failure will always be attached to me and my UN presentation,” the former U.S. secretary of state writes in a new book of leadership parables that draws frequently on his Iraq war experience. “I am mad mostly at myself for not having smelled the problem. My instincts failed me.” 

Well, here is what I have to say about this particular load of crap.  I remember watching Powell deliver this address on TV, and I remember knowing as he was saying it that it was nothing but a pack of lies.  And I'm no expert.  Anyone who listened to what Powell had to say and really paid attention to it must have seen through it instantly. 

Powell knew he was lying when he delivered that address, and he knows he is lying now.  His fault wasn't trusting the wrong people, it was collaborating in a criminal war of aggression.  He'll be really happy if we let him plea bargain his monstrous crime down to the misdemeanor of being stupid, but no one is buying it here at Green Eagle.

It's hard even for a 4 star general to admit he was being used, which is why the duped and oppressed conservative who is being used by the 1% and the Upper Echelon of the Oppressors will never admit he was wrong about Obama about Liberals about anything...

Better to continue with their self-delusion than to admit rich oppressive murdering fucks used and abused them.

Word for word, that was Cheney's speech...but he was busy trying out his waterboard.

Gene, I hate to disagree with you on this one, but I don't think Powell was being used, or that he was a dupe. This speech was so groundless that he must have known all along that it was a pack of lies. Powell, whose first emergence to national prominence came with his service in covering up American atrocities in Vietnam, is a willing liar, not a dupe, and he always has been.
