Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson – former chief of staff to Colin Powell, the guy who wrote Powell’s famous speech on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, and now distinguished adjunct professor of Government and Public Policy at William & Mary – is no stranger to controversy.
In a new, wide-ranging interview, Wilkerson says:
- “I went to every person I knew in the intelligence community, and everyone I knew outside of the United States, including two people who knew Syria at the time, and I knew … None of them could confirm for me that Assad used the chemical weapons. And frankly, the evidence looked more strongly for other parties than the president [Assad].]”
- The military-industrial-congressional complex doesn’t act to protect America … they protect to line their pockets with money
- America’s “ship is sinking”
- It may take a revolution to fix America
