Common sense from Colin Powell

Normally, it’s front page news when Colin Powell, or someone who knows Powell, criticizes any aspect of Bush administration policy. But I didn’t see anything on the Post’s front page (or anywhere in its news section) about Powell’s support for Bush’s policy with respect to electronic intercepts of terrorist communications. Powell told ABC’s This Week that “I see absolutely nothing wrong with the president authorizing these kinds of actions. . . .He was trying to protect the nation. And we have done things like this in the past.”
