Following Secretary of State Colin Powell’s January 26, 2003, speech at the World Economic Forum about the need for regime change in Iraq, former Australian Foreign Minister Gareth Evans said, of Powell: ” ‘He’s a decent guy, but I don’t think he changed any minds. …We don’t need much evidence, just enough to know that [Saddam] is lying. But there’s not enough yet…if you want international support.’ ”
