Some say Robert Gates, former secretary of Defense, should have spoken up sooner rather than now.
The same could apply to former Secretary of State Colin Powell. He was privy to George W. Bush’s war plans, which he opposed.
Powell could have changed history if he had resigned and spoke out rather than going along with the administration.
He might have saved thousands of lives, many thousands of wounded and billions of dollars.
