Wilkerson on Prewar Intel


* Colin Powell's Former Chief of Staff Col. Wilkerson on Prewar Intel,
Torture and How a White House "Cabal" Hijacked U.S. Foreign Policy *

We spend the hour with a former senior member of the Bush administration:
Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson. He served as chief of staff to former Secretary
of State Colin Powell from 2002 to 2005. In the interview, Wilkerson
discusses what he calls a "White House cabal", led by Dick Cheney and Donald
Rumsfeld; pre-war intelligence and Powell's February 2003 speech before the
United Nations; the "memory lapse" by Gen. Peter Pace, the Chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff and much more.


* Colin Powell's Former Chief of Staff Col. Wilkerson on Haiti: Defends U.S.
Role in Ouster of President, Claims Aristide's "Will to Power is Excessive
Even Obsessive" *

We speak with Colin Powell's former chief of staff, Colonel Lawrence
Wilkerson, about the overthrow of Haitian President Jean Bertrand Aristide
in 2004. Wilkerson defends the U.S. role in Haiti at the time. Aristide has
maintained he was ousted in what he calls a modern-day kidnapping in the
service of a coup d'etat backed by the United States.
