“colin powell’s time-out”

Sadly, the one cabinet member closest to a dove in the current administration, my boss-of-sorts Colin Powell, seems to have been sidelined at least temporarily, if not permanently. “The radical and polarizing implications of the President’s style of management, be it in his own Cabinet or in the foreign relations arena, has rung out the death knell for moderates and people who seek and value middle ground consensus…. While the cost of war is always high, it is sheer folly that causes the unnecessary loss of such patriots, old friends and allies.”
