“We went into a room. [Colin Powell] slammed the door shut. He said ‘sit down.’ And he sat down. We were the only two people in the room. He looked at me, and he said ‘this bullshit of contacts with al-Qaeda has got to be taken out. It’s bullshit.’ And I said ‘I agree with you. Let’s take it out.’ Done. Within a half an hour, [CIA Director George] Tenet comes in and explosively tells about this high-level al-Qaeda operative who’s been interrogated and admitted to these contacts. Whoa. And we put it back in.” (As reported by Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Colin Powell)
