Powell talks about Iraq
It's been four years since former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell went before the United Nations and made the case for war in Iraq -- a case built on the assumption that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.
Now, four years later, the weapons of mass destruction never materialized and America is still struggling to stabilize Iraq.
While Powell hasn't granted all that many interviews about the situation in Iraq, he talked with PBS host Jim Lehrer on July 5 at the Aspen Ideas Festival about what he thinks the United States should do going forward in Iraq.
