David Frum on why “Colin

David Frum on why “Colin Powell should have been fired yesterday.” The reason — Powell’s leaks to Bob Woodward. Frum notes that Woodward’s new book Bush at War “is essentially an edited transcript of Powell leaks, all of them calculated to injure this administration and undermine its policies on the very eve of military action against Iraq.” One can disagree with Frum about when Powell should have been fired, but his bottom line seems indisputable. As Frum puts it, “instead of representing the United States to the world, Powell sees his job as representing the world to the United States. It’s time for him to go.”
