US: Iraq and Colin Powell

Paul Simon says: "I can't help but wonder how much of Powell's "change" is a function of the viewers' previously agreeing with him and praying that he was the white knight of multilateral dovish policy in a hard-butted administration and their own disappointment at his current statements supporting the President. Seems as likely to be classic cognitive dissonance on the part of the commentators as any real change in the Secretary of State". RH: I don't think so.
