There can be no doubt that at one time, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Secretary of State, General Powell was seen as the epitome of American leadership who many slated to be president one day.

However, it seems a perceived slight from the Bush administration set Powell on a course of a scorned and vengeful man. Saddest of all is that General Powell, in his search for some form of recompence, has sacrificed his principles.

I remember General Powell’s tv ad during the 2012 presidential election crediting Obama with economic restoration.
