Jon on Air America Today

By: Bernard Chazelle

At 9-10pm (EST) today, Jonathan Schwarz will tell the nation what it needs to know about Colin Powell. Live streaming here.

—Bernard Chazelle

ADDED BY JON: Here's the background to what we're covering: Powell's UN address, his post-invasion lies, his whiny self-pity, and his pre-2000 career as investigated by Robert Parry and Norman Solomon.

Great work JS.

You sound very confident and authoritative.

Apparently not finding WMD's didn't mean a thing anyways. WE dove after Democracy and Regime change like pigeons after a bag of popcorn.

You sounded good - any chance there's a free podcast anywhere I could link to?

Clout seems to be one of the few programs willing to give the time necessary for a real discussion of the body politic. Cheers to them for having you on, you did a fantastic job. Plus, it's nice to finally put a voice to the posts.

I'm glad it went well! Do let us know if there's any online (and non-live) way of listening.
