Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Colin Powell, appeared on “MSNBC Live” tonight and discussed Powell’s role as Secretary of State during the lead-up to the Iraq War.

It makes me nuts to hear all the teeveee talkers breathlessly report this – every single bit of ‘new info’ has been well established years ago, books have been written about curveball, german intelligence, brit intelligence, our own analysts at CIA screaming ‘don’t beleive this guy’.

    I am just spitting mad all over again.
