In an article for the January/February 2004 issue of Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State Colin Powell “defended the Bush doctrine. ‘U.S. strategy is widely accused of being unilateralist by design,’ he wrote, ‘It isn’t. It is often accused of being imbalanced in favor of military methods. It isn’t.’ Arguing that Bush’s war on terrorism and freedom agenda were in the United States’ interest, he continued: ‘It would be churlish to claim that the Bush administration’s foreign policy has been error-free from the start. We are human beings; we all make mistakes. But we have always pursued the enlightened self-interest of the American people, and in our purposes and our principles there are no mistakes.’ ” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
