The Leash on the Dogs of War
Now, I KNOW I posted a fairly long note expressing my own personal views on the whole Belafonte/Powell debacle. Why I can't find it in my archives is beyond me. But, just for the record, let me reiterate: I think Harry Belafonte is perfectly entitled to question Gen. Powell's ethics for supporting Bush's policies. It's very hard seeing someone you respect cowtow to someone you don't. On the other hand, I've always been of the opinion that Powell is probably the sole voice of reason in the Bush Administration these days. If it wasn't for his efforts, we'd probably be shooting in Iraq right now. Well, here's Bob Woodward, the notorious Watergate reporter, giving us the inside dirt on how Powell kept Cheney & Rumsfeld from prematurely starting World War III. Read and be enlightened.
