Colin Powell re Bush Sr. . . . *PIC*

In Response To: Underbelly. . . *PIC* (LongGone)

. . .Powell served for four years as Bush’s chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during his presidency. “He was a great president, and he was a perfect American,” Powell said.

Powell told CNN about his interactions with Bush during the Gulf War and the end of the Cold War.

“He cared about every single soldier, sailor, airman and Marine we sent over there,” he said.

Powell said Bush, who served in World War II, would listen closely to him and his advisers before making a decision about any actions that could result in American casualties.

“I think he was a great commander in chief,” Powell said. “And his military experience, of course, had a lot to do with that as well. He knew what combat was all about. He knew that this was not a game. It was a war, and we had to do it well, we had to do it right.”
