John McCain: “General Powell, You Disappoint Us”
Senator McCain also says Colin Powell has “harmed” his legacy by endorsing President Obama for re-election.
“All I can say is: Gen. Powell, you disappoint us,” McCain said Thursday on Fox News Radio’s “Kilmeade and Friends.” “And you have harmed your legacy even further by defending what is clearly been the most feckless foreign policy in my lifetime.”
McCain also criticized Powell for his presentation to the UN in the run-up to the Iraq war, even though McCain was a war defender.
“I think one of the sad aspects of his career is going to the United Nations Security Council and telling them things about Iraq that were absolutely false,” McCain said, though he said he is an “admirer” of Powell’s.
Last year, Powell apologized for his UN remarks.
