TPM Reader JS has a question …

Regarding the Colin Powell speech to the U.N., Powell–and now his former Chief of Staff–have said that they threw out much of the draft speech given to them by the White House. Yet, even as delivered, the speech had several falsehoods. My questions: how much worse was the first draft and why can’t we see that draft? Nobody can says it’s classified because it was exactly what the White House wanted Powell to tell the whole world.

Good question. If we ever have a real congressional inquiry maybe it will be asked.
