Except for that one unfortunate slipup — you know, the ongoing multi-year conscious enabling of a massive war crime via egregious lies because he didn’t have the guts to walk away from his fancy job.

The fact that Powell was so respected in bipartisan Blobland made his mendacity all that much worse, because he exploited his status to sell an aggressive war against a sovereign state with no reasonable pretense of self-defense: again that’s a Class A war crime kids — the kind of stuff that gets less connected guys sent to the Hague — in a way that somebody like Cheney or Rumsfeld never could have.

But it’s Chinatown, so all he had to do was (sort of) apologize, and then the Right People spent years falling all over themselves talking about how great that was too! Think I’m exaggerating?

I’m coming to fully appreciate that when people say that somebody has a “complicated” legacy, what they really mean is that he committed some truly horrendous acts but we don’t actually want to come right out and scream it, because he was a Goodfella.
