The Rise and Fall of Colin Powell and the Powell Doctrine
Walter LaFeber discusses the rise of the Weinberger/Powell Doctrine by tracing Colin Powell’s career to 2001. He emphasizes how the George W. Bush administration not only overthrew the doctrine after 2001, but how Powell, notably in his February 2003 speech at the UN, helped in the overthrow by placing his then-highly respected reputation behind misleading and false evidence to justify war against Iraq.
