Independent Journalist Corners Colin Powell and Ask About His Pre-War Lies

By David Swanson

On this page, Jonathan Schwartz has posted an analysis of Colin Powell's fraudulent U.N. presentation, together with two short videos just produced by Sam Husseini of the Institute for Public Accuracy: //www.tinyrevolution.com/mt/archives/001238.html

In the first, Husseini reads from Bob Woodward's book and asks Powell whether he will admit that he fabricated evidence. Powell blames the CIA, adding a new lie to the old, failing to mention that his own State Department had warned him against making many of the lies he went ahead with at the United Nations.

In the second video, Husseini asks Powell simply whether he knew that Hussein Kamel had said there were no WMDs. You'll recall that Powell cited Kamel as a source of claims that Iraq possessed WMDs without mentioning that Kamel had said the WMDs had all been destroyed (and Kamel had said so on CNN). In this video, Powell amazingly claims he did not know Kamel had said that. Powell is claiming not to have known one of the most basic facts about Iraqi weapons, a fact that was public knowledge, a fact that was acquired by the United States at the same time as the information that Powell did use.

Husseini created these videos together with cameraman Chris Belcher and editor Matthew Bradley. You can find their work at //www.washingtonstakeout.com
