Powell’s guidance in a number of Republican governments really helped mold United States foreign relations in the last years of the 20th century and even the very early years of the 21st century.
As CNN documents, his nationwide appeal skyrocketed in the aftermath of the US-led coalition success during the course of the Gulf War, and for a while in the mid-90s, he was considered a major rival to end up being the very first Black Commander in chief of the United State of America. However, his credibility would be permanently stained when, as George W. Bush’s 1st foreign minister, he pushed damaged intelligence before the United Nations so as to advocate for the Iraq Conflict, which he would, later on, call a “taint” on his track record.
