Falling on His Sword

Falling on His Sword - Colin Powell's most significant moment turned out to be his lowest is the title of a lengthy and interesting article in the Washington Post which in turn is an excerpt from the book Soldier: The Life of Colin Powell by WP reporter Karen DeYoung.

It was a good read and I recommend it for your "Sunday interesting reading list". That is, if you like me, always want to know the details about what happened the minutes before significant moments in history. This article walks you through the time from when the secretary of state was asked to sell the war in the UN General Assembly, via the difficult work of validating claims of WMO´s from the White House and the CIA, to Powell´s last official meeting with the President.

Also from the WP: Two Months Before 9/11, an Urgent Warning to Rice.
