More Colin Powell: Excedrin Headache #326 

Sheah, am I dating myself, or WHAT?

He didn't provide a link to this transcript, but I trust him. From blah3.com, where the geniuses behind Take Back The Media blog:

Check this little exchange between Colin Powell and Congressman Sherrod Brown from earlier today [Feb. 11, 2004].

Congressman Sherrod Brown: Secretary, we count on you. The President may have been AWOL. The Vice-President has said he had 'other priorities' during Vietnam. Other high-ranking administration officials never served. You understand war, and we absolutely count on you. A lot of us wonder what happened between that Post interview and your statement the next day where you said the President made the right decision.

Powell: First of all, Mr. Brown, I won't dignify your comment about the President, because you don't know what you're talking about. Second, let me get to the point you were raising.

Brown: I'm sorry, I don't know what you mean, Mr. Secretary.

Powell: You made a reference that the President...

Brown: I said he may have been AWOL.

Powell: Mr. Brown, let's not go there. Let's just not go there. Let's not go there in this hearing. You just want to have a political fight on this matter that is very controversial, and it has been dealt with by the White House fine. Let's not go there.

Brown's got the right idea. Every time the opportunity presents itself to ask any member of this administration about Bush's military record, it should be taken.
