"I was just following orders."
Powell: We Went Into Iraq Without Enough Troops
In an interview aired today on Britain’s ITV, former Secretary of State Colin Powell said that the U.S. went into Iraq without enough troops. Powell said he always “favored a larger military presence.” Prior to the invasion Powell made the case to Rumsfeld and President Bush but was overruled. As a result Powell said we didn’t have “enough force there at the time to impose order.”
"Hey. Stop it. Come on, don't. Oh, okay."
