|Colin Powell: Call It Civil War||Iraq|
CNN's Hala Gorani (via ThinkProgress):
Well, within the context of the leaders conference in Dubai and also within the context of this debate, this semantics debate, over whether to call what is going on on in Iraq a civil war, the former Secretary of State Colin Powell says he thinks we can call it a civil war and added if he were still heading the State Department, he probably would recommend to the Bush administration that those terms should be used in order to come to terms with the reality on the ground.
This White House coming to terms with reality? Not going to happen.
