Jackal for America's Warlords - Powell

US Secretary of State Colin Powell argued vehemently before the United Nations (5 Feb 2003) that invading Iraq was the only way to neutralize multiple threatening weapons.

"My colleagues, every statement I make today is backed up by sources, solid sources. These are not assertions. What we're giving you are facts..." (link)

But Powell's presentation was exaggeration & lies. Due to misplaced trust in jackal Powell, thousands of people died, and costs continue to skyrocket. Deception under his authority besmirched his nation's honor, and this memory continues to subvert people's trust in government.
