Anybody wanta make bets?? In one corner we got Secretary of State Colin Powell ..OPPOSING.. the Secretary of Defense Rumsfield...Backing Rumsfeld and siding with him..President Bush...This could be so much fun !!! Powell says they are...might be ...could be P.O.W.'s and under the Third Geneva guidelines. Rumsfeld and Bush say it ain't so,...that they are just terrorist homeboys from Afghanistan, and therefore...they ain't real soldiers because they didn't wear uniforms...army uniforms. Really! That's what they said. Todays' www.newyorktimes.com.
I bet come Monday or Tuesday, Powell will say he was just doodling on that memo pad and didn't know the Washington papers was going to PRINT it. And that he didn't really mean to voice an opinion without running it by Rumsfeld and Bush first. Recall how the vice-president, what's his name vanished after Sept. 11? He was too vocal and competent. Powell will disappear next I bet. Maybe Australia needs a state visit or Antartica!

Prn, our Vice President "what's his name" is Dick Cheney. And I believe he "vanished" after 9/11 for security reasons so that if anything happened to our President or any other major disaster, we would still have a working government. I believe it's pretty standard to separate the President and Vice President during questionable violent times. And if it's not standard, it's pretty damn smart.
Seeing as Bush selected
Cheney as his running mate, and selected
General Powell as Secretary of State, I highly doubt that he would try to "get rid of them" because they are too "vocal." This twisted paranoia you are displaying of our government is kind of disturbing.
