A startling revelation. 

Here is a startling revelation from an ex-aid to Colin Powell, whom I guess wants to clear his own conscience for not coming out sooner about this: Colin Powell misled the American people in this rush to war. That's right folks, you heard it here first.

I hope this turns out to be as important as Joseph Wilson turning the tables on Bush and his faulty intelligence. We can only hope. From Common Dreams:

Greg Thielmann tells Correspondent Scott Pelley that at the time of Powell’s speech, Iraq didn’t pose an imminent threat to anyone – not even its own neighbors. “…I think my conclusion [about Powell’s speech] now is that it’s probably one of the low points in his long distinguished service to the nation,” says Thielmann.
