Reasonable? , this is the man who helped lie us into Iraq. Seriously, reasonable?(critical thinking cap tossed in the corner angrily, some things are unforgivable...my brother was there, he has severe PTSD (Powel was not)...reasonable?)
Yeah, I'm not sure how he gets away with that. I'm still furious at everybody involved in that...but, like, it seems, everybody else, I've always basically forgiven Powell. It's embarrassing that I think it's largely because he seems likable.
I don't pretend to be objective on this one, I might possibly see it both ways. But I've seen my brother suffer and this asshat was part of it...likeable or not, he was part of ot and we should never forget.
I do not disagree. And I'd think that yours was the more objective position. I think most people are driven by a largely subjective factor: he's likable. OTOH, he seems to have been tricked / lied to himself to some extent...so that's a sound excuse to whatever extent it's true.Sorry about your brother, man. I have no idea what that must be like.
