“On February 5, 2003, he [Secretary of State Colin Powell] gave his now-famous performance, wherein he declared that his statements about Iraqi ongoing WMD programs and stockpiles were ‘facts’–and this was a term he personally introduced to his text. …Powell did a fine job presenting a picture that turned out to be wrong. It sounded good, but to careful listeners, there was nothing conclusive.”
