We haven’t heard too much about Colin Powell in the news lately. Yes he was former Secretary of State. However he made his name in the United States Army as a professional soldier. He achieved the rank of General and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Some notable events during his tour of duty as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff includes the First Persian Gulf War. Mr. Powell was involved in the decision to invade Iraq for the Second Gulf War. He is famous for going to the United Nations to attempt to get their buyin for the invasion of Iraq.
So what has Colin Powell been up to lately. It’s been pretty quiet. He been working behind the scenes quite a bit. Apparently, Mr. Powell has taken an interest in the world of Venture Capitalism. Colin is a strategic limited partner of KPCB.
Not everything is rosy for Mr. Powell. There are many people out to criticized him. For example, in this article his is called a disgrace. So what is your take. I would definitely like to hear your feedback.
