We’ll be saying more about this later. But watch Colin Powell’s trip through Europe. On the surface, this is an effort at fence-mending with NATO allies after the lead-up to war and an attempt to make plans for post-war Iraq.

Let’s hope he’s able to pull it off. On the other hand, in his battles with the hawks, look at his track record.
