Recently out of surgery for prostate cancer, Powell recently gave an interview
regarding the Bush administrations efforts at diplomacy, rather than aggression. Though there are many who may feel that this administration is led by a war-crazy cowboy, many efforts have been made at diplomacy first; North Korea, Libya. In the interview, Powell sounds frustrated by the fact that their efforts at diplomacy are being overlooked. As he originally opposed the Iraq war, it is understandable that he would feel frustrated that this will most likely be the legacy of this administration.
