GENERAL COLIN POWELL -- IS HE MR. CLEAN?

All across the land, the press has been playing up General COLIN POWELL. To pile up millions of dollars for himself, he started out with a book tour, followed by a political honeymoon. But, don't count on the newsfakers to give you pertinent facts. Those planning for high office are selected because they are blackmailable.
ITEM: Some time after the Persian Gulf War, the Emir of Kuwait gave millions of dollars to Gen. Powell, Gen. NORMAN SCHWARZKOPF, and GEORGE BUSH. Powell got about ten million dollars in jewels, Schwarzkopf a gold box inlaid with jewels worth about the same, and Bush got about 20 million dollars -- none of them reported this and made an inventory of the same, as required by the government ethics law. Also, it is unconstitutional for U.S. public officials to be paid for their official duties by a foreign monarch.
ITEM: Gen. Powell, an African-American, conveniently overlooks the fact his patrons, the royal family of Kuwait, as well as the Saudis, keep black chattel slaves, this late in the 20th century. By the way, was it unconstitutional for President Bush to send black American soldiers to fight for black slave-owners, namely, Kuwait and Saudi?
ITEM: As shown in Powell's book, he was close with Secretary of Defense CASPAR WEINBERGER. It was Weinberger that pushed Powell to the top of the Pentagon. In his report, independent counsel LAWRENCE WALSH pointed out the apparent criminal complicity of Powell in the treasonous Iran-Contra Affair. Powell in his book denies the same.
Weinberger was indicted but prior to trial was granted a pardon by out-going President Bush. Walsh apparently never got around to prosecuting Gen. Powell.
ITEM: Gen. Powell was implicated in secretly cheating the Iranians by sending them obsolete or defective TOW missiles for which Iran paid heavily in advance. The Iranians were sore and retaliated in 1986 by arranging to bomb an American plane over Canada, returning from a failed hostage rescue mission. Two hundred fifty of our troops, quite a number being black, died in the sabotaged crash. Their ghosts should be placed at Gen. Powell's doorstep.
ITEM: About 1985, VINCENT W. FOSTER, Jr. was the secret link between Bush & Weinberger and JONATHAN POLLARD, a low level Naval Intelligence analyst. Foster, on behalf of the vice president and defense secretary, arranged for Pollard to take large quantities of nuclear launch code secrets right out of one of the intelligence agencies and turned over to a foreign power.
From 1983 to 1993, Foster was the equivalent of a military general in the super-secret NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY, including the few months he was Clinton White House deputy counsel.
Only Pollard himself was blamed for this treason. At a hearing, Weinberger, to cover up his own complicity, wanted Pollard to get the gallows or the firing squad. Pollard got life in prison. Bush & Weinberger belong moreso in prison than Pollard. Weinberger reportedly had or has a secret Swiss account with the blood money.
Like others for high office, will Gen. Powell be selected because he is subject to blackmail?
Also, Gen. Powell has been closely linked to a Pentagon official, RICHARD ARMITAGE, reportedly deeply implicated with Bush in dope trafficking from Southeast Asia.
WAS COLIN POWELL IMPLICATED IN ALL THIS TREACHERY? DOES HE KNOW HOW and WHY FOSTER WAS MURDERED? We think so.
