  • He was by most accounts a decent human being, well-educated, accomplished and respected. I won't let that one checkmark, while disappointing, ruin my impression. RIP sir.
  • Howdy,

    RIP. I love his war philosophy. Hit them with overwhelming force, kick their asses, come home. Damn, I wish we had this in Washington.

  • I greatly admired Colin Powell, and have always thought that he took an unfair hit on the United Nations presentation on Iraq's supposed WMD arsenal.

    General Powell didn't invent that false information on his own- he was reporting what he believed to be accurate information from the best intelligence resources of the US government.

    I'm with rono with respect to the general's war philosophy.
  • Powell had intelligence, integrity and balls. His memory should be honored.
