Former Secretary of State Colin Powell appeared on Larry King Live on November 15, 2010. “The then-secretary of state stood by his presentation to the United Nations–information he insisted that was vetted and approved by the U.S. intelligence community–in early [February 5] 2003 suggesting weapons of mass destruction were in Iraq. But he did have disappointment about the talk, which was critical in swaying public opinion in support for the war, in retrospect. ‘I regret it now, because the information was wrong,’ he said.”
