Little known fact, Powell was a member of Pershing Rifles, the same group at Clemson that does the color guard at the football games and performs various other functions from precision drill to military ceremonies.
Oh yeah, that’s why he put the bayonet in Bush’s back - have you no memory? Or can you only remember Brad B’s mistakes? His incorrect testimony led to the deaths of many American Soldiers and led us to war, based on false information. He used Russian intelligence to back his claim. Imagine doing that now.
His ‘leadership’ is one of the early causes of the mess our country is in now. He SWORE to Congress that Sadam had WMDs. We never found one - not one! Even the biggest hawks do not repeat his lie. And yes, I believed him at the time - because of all of the things you write in his honor - but he lied and soldiers died.
I don’t celebrate anyone’s death, but CP was not a good guy in the story. But you can believe whatever you like.
