Better late than never

It seems Powell has finally decided to make a stand.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed efforts to block President Bush's plan to authorize harsh interrogations of terror suspects, even as Bush lobbied personally for it Thursday on Capitol Hill.
The latest sign of GOP division over White House security policy came in a letter that Powell sent to Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., one of three rebellious senators taking on the White House.

I had such high hopes for him at one point, before he was turned to the dark side. As much as I would like to think he is trying to make up for past mistakes, I'm a little too pessimistic to believe this comes from pure intentions. Something tells me we are going to be hearing a lot more from this man in the near future.
