Controversy Sells

A Yahoo/AP article describes General and former Secretary of State Colin's Powell's instant reaction to the publication of former Vice President Dick Cheney's book In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir.

"My head isn't exploding. I haven't noticed any other heads exploding in Washington," Powell said. "From what I've read in the newspapers and seen on television it's essentially a rehash of events of seven or eight years ago."

He accused Cheney of taking "cheap shots" at various key officials in the administration of George W. Bush. He had a counter-charge of his own, saying that if the Vice President had been as forthcoming with the FBI as Richard Armitage, Lewis "Scooter" Libby may have been able to avoid a prison sentence.
