Glad I Missed It

Left I watched Jon Stewart interview Colin Powell last night on the Daily Show, and as usual, Bush's house boy dutifully carried his master's weighty buckets of bullshit:

His [Jon's] questions weren't total softballs, but he wasn't about to challenge any of the nonsense spewing from Powell's mouth either. Yet another big lie appeared on this show -- Powell's assertion that "all the intelligence services of the world" said that Iraq had WMD. As I wrote here, they may have thought it was possible or even likely that Iraq had WMD, but that wasn't the case for invasion made to the world and to the American people by George Bush and his gang, and it certainly wasn't the claim made by Powell himself at the U.N. in February, 2003, where he made statements like these:

We know that Iraq has at least seven of these mobile, biological agent factories.

"There can be no doubt that Saddam Hussein has biological weapons and the capability to rapidly produce more, many more. And he has the ability to dispense these lethal poisons and diseases in ways that can cause massive death and destruction.

"Saddam Hussein has chemical weapons."

Remember Powell's performance at the UN? Remember the stunned, incredulous, indeed flabbergasted looks on the council members' faces as the US SOS presented as fact what were known falsehoods, remember the forged document?

Colin Powell is a fucking liar and I wish someone! close enough to do so would call him on his bullshit.

Just after Powell's UN performance in Feb., 2003, I marched in protest with tens of thousands of others who wanted peace, NOW, first in Sacramento and then in San Francisco, and the sign I carried was COLIN POWELL IS A LIAR!

He was then, he is now.
