The fabulously esteemed Uncle-General, Colin Powell has now disclosed that after doing his duty and peddling lies to facilitate the Administration’s war of unnecessary imperialist aggression, President Bush tossed him aside in favor of his slave mistress. How cute. Is this the part where I’m supposed to feel sorry for a man who turns a blind eye to African suffering, Haitian democracy, and the voting rights of his own people?
It ain’t gonna happen. The fact that he dated his “resignation letter” on my birthday makes it even sweeter. It is the least he can do to challenge Administration policy from the outside and inflict maximum damage at this critical time. He owes it to all of us. Too bad it won’t be sufficient to atone for his war-crimes.
