Former Secretary of State Colin Powell was host Tim Russert's guest on MTP [Meet The Press].... Powell said that he would close Gitmo "this afternoon" and put its inmates into our general prison population. He said that it was "too early" to say if he would support the Republican Presidential nominee but that he was advising Barack Obama on foreign policy matters. He would not rule out returning to public service at some future date.
I wonder if Powell regrets not getting on the Democratic ticket back in 2000? His legacy, and the world might have both been the better for it (assuming Gore would listen to him). Now he is one of many who lent their credibility to the Bush drive to war and were left wishing they'd asked for a deposit.
