I saw a link to this article about Colin Powell over at GQ. I was skeptical initially because GQ didn’t really seem like a place to find an in-depth story, but I thought it provided a nice profile of Powell and his struggles within the Bush administration. Admittedly, I’m totally biased against Bush and his attack dogs, so it’s not surprising that I’m sympathetic to Powell, but this article seems to realistically portray the struggles within the Bush administration, at least from Powell’s perspective. Worth a read.
