Secretary of State Colin “Powell told reporters at a November 15 [2004] press briefing that ‘it had always been my intention that I would serve one term,’ and that he and [President] Bush ‘came to a mutual agreement that it would be appropriate to leave at this time.’ But Frank Carlucci, a former secretary of defense himself during the Reagan administration, who was close to both Powell and [Vice President Dick] Cheney…was more forthright. ‘Colin has been used,’ he said.” [Note to SM: contact Frank Carlucci.]
