It's Good to See He's Keeping Busy

Colin Powell, hip-hop artist.

America's former top diplomat took centre stage along with Nigerian group Olu Maintain at the Africa Rising Festival in the Royal Albert Hall.

Is there anyone whose reputation was more tainted by association with the Bush administration than Powell? At one time he was on the short list of serious presidential candidates. It's not hard to imagine him running instead of McCain or Palin had things gone better. Even now McCain/Powell would be more interesting - and certainly more credible.

The higher you are, the farther you have to fall. Hard to say that you're a decent man when you knowingly say false things that lead to a war, and when you sit in one a meeting where "advanced interrogation techniques" are acted out for you and you don't walk out of the meeting in disgust.
