Dig out Colin Powell’s turqoise shell-suit

Interesting interview with General Colin Powell on Newsnight last night in which he outlined his thoughts on the Iranian threat to the international community.
It was like his address to the United Nations on Iraq’s stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction never happened.
When Jeremy Paxman tackled him on that, he said he had been dealing with “facts” – or facts as he knew them at the time.
In other words, facts which were later shown to be wrong, ie, facts which were not facts at all. Not then. Not now.
I have not seen a more deluded interviewee since David Icke went on Wogan in a turquoise shell-suit and announced the world was run by a race of reptilian-humanoids.
Anyway, David, would it be a stranger place if it was?
