Serpentine claims

Powell's was one voice that I respected for long, since the first Gulf war. But from the time he presented US's "justification" for the war in the UN, he lost that status. He was not someone I expected to make baseless claims. But pointing to the presence of transport trucks outside suspected chemical/bio-chemical labs as evidence to the presence of chemical/bio-chemical weapons in Iraq was by far a stretch of a biased imagination. I am not implying that Iraq did not possess chemical/bio-chemical weapons. That I do not know. But the "evidence" that US presented was a joke and not worthy of a war that took a few thousand innocent lives.

In the matter of a few minutes, Powell then relegated himself in history. Today, he dug deeper with more claims.
