Colin Powell’s concerned about Guantanamo Bay, it seems, or at least he’s writing Rumsfeld concerned letters about it. Man, there’s a wealth of implied information in that article. Not the least of which is anything you can glean from the fact that Powell’s writing letters rather than sitting down for a chat. He wants to be on the record? He can’t get a slot on Rumsfeld’s calendar? He wants amateur political observers like me to make random unfounded guesses?
This kind of thing, by the way, is the answer to left wing calls for Powell to resign. Particularly if you think Powell is a principled man in an unprincipled administration, it is morally correct for him to remain as Secretary of State in order to cushion the excesses of that administration.
