Secretary of State Powell is similar to his predecessor Kissinger

According to the proprietor of The Whiskey Bar, at www.billmon.org:

As far as I can tell, Colin Powell is one of the most cynical liars to ever serve in the U.S. government - who's still alive, I mean. And when Henry Kissinger finally kicks the bucket, he'll have the title.

I think Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz et al actually believed a lot of the stories they were telling. But Powell has never bought into ANY of the administration's fantasies. And yet he's been perfectly willing to go out and sell them in public, over and over and over again. And in the process, he's told some of the most outrageous lies of any of them.

Maybe he thinks it's his duty. Or maybe he's just a sociopath like Bush. I don't know. But it's been quite a performance.

He thinks its his duty.

To put Powell just below Kissinger, a war criminal, is too much

Well, I agree that Powell is weak, hypocritical, and a pathetic suck up. I cannot agree, however, that Cheyney, Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld actually believed in the campaign of lies about Iraq. If anything, Powell was more likely to have been semi-taken in because he didn't have the inside poop on the phony intelligence shop those three guys were running and he might have actually thought some of the product was legit.

Powell was Chimpy's floorboy. For those who don't know, that's a house slave whose job is to serve as a footstool.
