Day of Shame, 2009


I've been reminded that today marks the Day of Shame, when Colin Powell spoke to the United Nations, and played a crucial role in selling going to war with Iraq - less so to the world than to the American media and public.

Here's my post in three parts from last year's blogswarm (this post is somewhat related). Over at the Day of Shame site, Vast Left has a good post for the occasion.

I know he's expressed regret and seems to realize he made a mistake... but that does not wipe away the shame. I think he knew better and still went along with it.

Now it's time to get out of there.
