The Man that Never Was

How Quickly we Forget

~ the treachery of our once lauded leaders. Powell did more to get us into Iraq than anyone else, aside from Cheney-Bush; and now when history COUNTS, the public is again stuck in a myopic-romance with a view of this man that never was.

Obama wants Powell inside his administration, which means that Obama shares the McCain view of remaining in Iraq for the next hundred years.

Of course with the addition of this Empirical Pawn, Obama's new cabinet will represent the very worst
of all of those former leaders in their respective fields that Obama is supposedly running to permanently sideline.
So Obama's message of "CHANGE" in reality only equals the final chapter wherein the failures of the past shall have been successfully unearthed AGAIN: This time to finally "set" our tyrannical policies in the bloodied sands of our criminal past!

Barack Obama Accepts Endorsement of Colin Powell Despite the Ex-General’s Role in Making the Case for Iraq War.
Powell
While Powell’s endorsement is big news, his critical role in the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq has been glossed over, particularly his February 2003 address to the United Nations where he made the case for war with Iraq. Today, we host a critical discussion on what this endorsement means for the antiwar movement and progressives across this country. We speak to David Sirota and Glen Ford.

As we turn now to the most talked about political endorsement of the campaign in recent weeks. On Sunday former Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed the Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. The retired four-star general, who served in the last two Bush administrations, made the announcement on NBC’s Meet the Press.

Powell’s endorsement of Senator Obama marks the latest in a series of defections by Republican party members in this campaign. On Sunday Obama said Powell would have a role as “one of my advisors.”

The blogosphere is abuzz with praise for Powell’s endorsement and many are heartened by his comments on allegations around Obama’s religious faith.

While Powell’s endorsement is big news, his critical role in the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq has been glossed over, particularly his February 2003 address to the United Nations where he made the case for war with Iraq.

Today we host a critical discussion on what this endorsement means for the anti-war movement and progressives across this country. (the transcript of which of course was not provided on Democracy Now today - k)
