  •  "...exactly what Colin Powell did..." (0+ / 0-)

    Gen Powell's wiki:

    Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, later characterized Cheney's view of Powell's mission as to "go up there and sell it, and we'll have moved forward a peg or two. Fall on your damn sword and kill yourself, and I'll be happy, too.

    Wilkerson said that he inadvertently participated in a hoax on the American people in preparing Powell's erroneous testimony before the United Nations Security Council

    •  Just in the sense that he (0+ / 0-)

      presented what he was told to present.

      Or did he make up his own script, or did Rice, or what?

      I didn't point out anything about Powell's actions, by the way, just remarked that somebody probably would. But I have heard it said that he was only responsible for presenting stuff, not for generating it. Which is what somebody (The President, if I recall correctly) said that Rice did.

      Moderation in most things.
