MTP – Colin Powell, close Gitmo

Again, this is why I like General Powell. General Powell will be one of those figures in American history that will have historians scratching their heads. He seems to be an honest straight shooter. His whole career seems to underline this fact. Then there is his UN speech. The most important speech in a generation and he dropped the ball. I personally believe that General Powell is a soldier first. If your Commander and Chief asks you to do something you do it, to the best of your ability. That’s the only way that I can explain what happened.

Powell is very practical about Gitmo. Close it. It harms our reputation. Hold those prisoners in US prisons. Let the US courts handle the prisoners. Now, it will be very hard for the Bush, Cheney crowd to say that Colin Powell hasn’t seen the intelligence because he has. It will be hard for them to say that he doesn’t understand the problem because it is clear that he does. Where’s Bartlett, Bush’s personal hit man. The Bush Administration will send Cheney out to combat what Powell has said. Maybe they will send Tony Snow but they will respond because that is their way.

MTP – Colin Powell, would he do it over again?

In spite of all that has happened, Colin Powell remains one of my favorite people.  Yes, he made some mistakes.  Yes, he made it much easier for the Bush Administration to go to war.  But, he still seems to try to be honest.  None of the folks in the Bush administration has EVER admitted that they have made a mistake.  Powell clearly states if we knew then what we know now there is no way that we go to war.  Now, compare his answer to Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.  There is no comparison.  None.  One is dancing around the problem (Mitt).  The other answer is obvious to everyone watching.
