Powell should take a lesson from General Norman Schwarzkopf (a real general not affirmative action general), just be quiet and enjoy your retirement.
I agree - Stormin’ Norman was able to just stick to his job as a General; great guy from NJ.
Update: Alas, poor Colin can’t “be quiet”, he’s employed by the globalists now. Apparently the chip in his neck has been installed and booted up.
Card-carrying member of Council on Foreign Relations.
He’s right there with all the other members who serve for decades, as Presidents come and go and Senators snooze away.
Did you know they actually wrote a book before Obama was elected which laid out the “agenda for the next President” ? Whether it was Romney or Obama or Bugs Bunny, U.S. foreign policy would have been calmly “asserted” to him. If a President were to actually defy the accepted thinking of CFR, hmmm, interesting question. CFR is a global organization, arguably with better global contacts than any particular administration. Of course, it’s heavily laden with U.S. influence, but one has to wonder, who is really influencing whom ?
Madeleine Albright has been at the CFR since the 1970s, when she “assisted” with foreign policy for the peanut man under her then boss, the seemingly ever-present Zbigniew.
CFR has about 4,700 members - who are admitted only at the invitation of CFR.
How’s that for “representative government” ?
