Think the Americans were hellbent on going into Iraq whatever any other country said or evidence to the contrary. I think the 'sexed up' dossier was in order to get British Parliament and the public onboard.

That's entirely possible. But Powell told the UN that the dossier was completely true.

Oh it was, even the people who prepared the sources were surprised to find that single source intelligence was being front lined as fact. It presented intelligence that was known to be unreliable as if it was true.

Powell did exactly the same, even though experts in Biological and Chemical weapons told him that those were not mobile labs.

Over a million people died for that.

Why was this? It surely can’t just be to support the arms industry donors. They all knew he had nothing to do with 9/11.

Is there a more reputable source than CNN? They are as bad as Fox.

Is this the right place to ask for a period of respect before the vultures pick over the carcass.

Plus...can we argue whether we are all equally shitheads...except one or two of the most pious amongst us, responsable for keeping us all on the moral highground?

I think we need a further 100 posters to post the exact same thing before the BBS arbiter of criticism can make a judgment either way.

There is an expectation, Peter, that public figures in public roles do not act like shitheads. I’m not too sure that it’s especially controversial.

So comparing his behaviour to, say, yours is irrelevant.

Had he at the time resigned and told the truth about Iraq and Bush then his death would be a footnote on CNN news at best. That’s where morals will get you.

If you're that bothered by CNN or the plethora of other news outlets reporting it, you could just go on to his website and read it there?

You’re making the mistake of responding to trolling (i assume it’s trolling, surely no one is quite that stupid)

I don't think that would be the case. Had he told the truth he'd have been vindicated by the failure to find WMD, and become so!during of a sought out commentator over the following decade. The US and UK probably would have still had their war, it's just he wouldn't be remembered for being one of its key instigators.

Lucky for Powell that he was lacking in that aspect of life.

Now may be the time to reflect and ask:

Was it ever explained why he was known as Co-Lyn, rather than just plain old Colin?

Is it like posh English people preferring to be called Raif rather than Ralph?
