LIARS CLUB: Ten Years Later, They’re Still Fighting Over Colin Powell’s WMD Speech

21st Century Wire says…

There’s no statute of limitations when it comes to lying one’s trousers off in order to get the country into an illegal war, or so it seems…

One forgets that had Colin Powell NOT gone in as deep as he did, making a complete ass out of himself with a vile of talcum powder in front of the UN, and telling fairy tales of the infamous “Winnebegos of Death” in Iraq – he would have been sitting where Barack Obama is right now – the first ‘black’ President of the United States of America. Instead, he became a lifetime member of ‘The Liars Club ‘.

Of course, he’d be forgiven if he came out and denounced Washington’s criminal class and tell the American people straight – “I lied, and we went to war over that. I was wrong, and so is Obama for executing the same fraud we started”.

That would be a real ‘legacy’ moment, and isn’t that what political careers are all about – that precious legacy? When will one of these liars come forward to be counted? Never?

On Feb. 5, 2003, at the request of President George W. Bush, Secretary of State Colin Powell went before the United Nations and made the case that Iraq possessed and was concealing weapons of mass destruction. Though it soon became clear that the speech was deeply flawed, Powell and other members of the Bush team still spar over how it came to be and who is to blame. Some excerpts from their memoirs:
