Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither, and lose both.
-- Benjamin Franklin

Ever wonder why Powell quit as soon as could?

“What I saw was a cabal between the vice-president of the United States, Richard Cheney, and the secretary of defense, Donald Rumsfeld, on critical issues that made decisions that the bureaucracy did not know were being made. Now it is paying the consequences of making those decisions in secret, but far more telling to me is America is paying the consequences.”

– Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, Colin Powell’s chief of staff until January 2005
quote from Wednesday, October, 19th.

It would not surprise me at all if Colin Powell has spent the majority of the time since he resigned compulsively washing himself, over and over again.
