who saw the average person of color in positions. they'd never seen a person of color before in that role. and so that's what made him a really revered by not just blacks, but also white that they saw this person doing a job with humility and to lead by example. and as a result, you heard there from the secretary of state entity blinking, that people would move mountains for him as a result of his conduct and his actions. and to the very end, he was providing counsel for not just republicans, but also democrats who looked to him because he was a man of principle, a duty to country before party r. kimberly. thank you very much. kimberly hawkins lived there at the white house. ah, it is 16 hours g m t m fully brought table in doha. collin powell, one of the leading figures of american military and foreign policy for nearly 2
7:01 pm
decades, has died. at the age of 84, his family confirmed the new saying power died from coven 19 complications. he was a 1st black american to serve as both secretary of state and as a country's top general, i white house correspondent, kimberly hawk. it looks back on his life and career colin powell spent his career breaking barriers. he was the son of jamaican immigrants and spent 35 years in the u. s. army. he led combat forces in vietnam and eventually became a 4 star general. powell was ronald reagan's national security adviser in the 1980s in 1989. george h. w. bush made him the pentagon, top military officer, chair of the joint chiefs of staff. i will do it at the present united states directly to do and what the bush administration wanted. the invasion of iraq in january 1991 in response to his invasion of kuwait several months earlier. and with
7:02 pm
unrelenting, overwhelming use of military force. the powell doctrine was born. you have to kind of a clear understanding of why they're being committed for what purpose and can't just be we're seeing all this terrible stuff because the gulf war turned power into a hero. many wanted him to run for president, but he refused. instead, powell broke the color barrier once more. he was the 1st african american to serve as secretary of state during george w bush's presidency. during that tenure, powell did one thing that ultimately changed his reputation. he argued for the invasion of iraq in 2003 before the un security council acts and iraq's behavior show that saddam hussein and his regime are concealing their efforts to produce more weapons of mass destruction. the evidence for powells case turned out to be
7:03 pm
false. he accepted responsibility for helping to lead the country into what power later called an unjustified war. since i deeply regret that the information, some of the information at all that some of the information i presented with from multi source was wrong. and it is a lot on my record. but yeah, i, there's nothing i can do to change that block over time pals. regret turned into disillusion with the republican party. he endorsed democratic presidential candidate brock obama in 2008. the visibility will expire because of the inclusive nature of his campaign because he is reaching out all across america. he gave similar reasons for backing hillary clinton over donald trump in 2016, and did the same for joe biden in 2020 with joe biden in the white house. you will never doubt that he will stand with our friends and stand up to our adversaries. never the other way around. after the storming of the u. s. capital on january 6th,

7:05 pm
witnessed. all my last a great husband and the family lost a tremendous father and i lost a tremendous personal friend and mentor. he has been my mentor for a number of years and always made time for me. and i could always go to, i'm with what tough issues he always had. great, great counsel. we will certainly miss him. i feel as if i have a hole in my heart. just this morning of this, just recently p. j. crowley is a former assistant secretary of state, he says column power may have made mistakes, but he was willing to take responsibility. there are 2 bookends when it comes to colin powell in iraq. i served as a military officer during the 1st gulf war, where the united states under his leadership acted decisively acted, you know,
