The Whole Truth

Today’s WordPress prompt was: Truth Serum—You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum. Who would you give it to (with the person’s consent, of course) — and what questions would you ask?

I would give the whole vile to General Colin Powell, former United States Secretary of State, then proceed to ask him the following questions.

General Powell, “Do you believe that Saddam Hussein, Iraq’s leader, actually had weapons of mass destruction and the ability to use them?”

General Powell, you had the CIA director George Tenet sit directly behind you during the famous UN speech, he sat there for the world to see. “Do you believe his statement was true about the invasion of Iraq, “being a slam dunk?” “The invasion was also compared to being a cakewalk, do you feel that was true?”

General Powell, “Do you believe the war planners were running a fear campaign? Talking about weapons of mass destruction, yellow cake from Africa, mushroom clouds, poison gas. Was the media used to get the country fired up for war?”

General Powell, “Do you think the invasion of Iraq would ever have taken place without your speech being made to the whole world?”

General Powell, “Were you telling the truth when you made the famous speech at the United Nations Building in New York City about weapons of mass destruction?”

The following link will take you to the latest news, news about weapons of mass destruction.

  1. Those were some good questions and a nice response to that Daily Prompt Leland Olson Hoel, I think that we both have an idea of what some of his answers might be. 😉

  2. Some Europeans including me think that the Iraqi war should never have happened and it’s entirely possible that the American Administration used the weapons of mass destruction excuse to start a disastrous military operation. Being Cypriot, however, I am violently against another US Secretary of State who gave the OK for Turkey to invade my country in 1974!
