3:02 am
a man of overwhelming dishes. and i believe factory palsy, yours is a soldier or what made him such an exceptional diplomat. he knew that war and military action should always be a last resort. and iraq's behavior show that as secretary of state, under president george w bush, powell will be remembered as the person who made the case to the world in 2003. that iraqi leader, saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. a key justification for the american invasion of iraq. it was a claim he later regretted your to his credit or he was accountable. yeah. he, he admitted, you know, his mistakes early or later, ah, about is not something that you, we've heard across the bush national security team. on monday, bush issued a statement pointing out the powell was so respected. he earned the presidential medal of freedom twice. powell, a vietnam veteran serv,
3:03 am
most of his life in the u. s. military before he entered politics. as the 1st african american secretary of state, he set an example for those who came after him. the senate april, the 1st black president, brock obama said powell never denied the role that res played in his own life and to in our society more broadly. but he also refused to accept that race would limit his dreams. he has been my mentor for a number of years. i always made time for me, and i can always go to him what, what tough issues. colin powell served multiple republican presidents. but later in life endorsed democratic candidates for president, he put duty to country above allegiance to any political party. yet another reason that in a divided united states, americans from the right and left are honoring the example set by colin powell.
3:04 am
kimberly, how can al jazeera washington? well, let's bring in general mac committees, a former assistant secretary of state for political military affairs under president george w bush and joins us via skype from washington. dc. up mach good to have you back on the program isn't said cut in pow was a shoes the respected public figure. a highly decorated so just season diplomat, you works for coat in power. what ideals do you think he embodied and what was he like? well, 1st of all, i knew him both when i was in the military as he was and also at stake. apartment of the fact amazes, he was everything that the eulogies and the admiration that is being spoken about minutes. he was larger than life, but he had a humility and a care for the individual that i think he rarely see either in senior government officials or senior military. so that's what i always remembered about him. the way he had that individual touch with people of much lower ranks than he and mock
3:05 am
controversy though, he defended the u. s. decision to invade iraq. he, he, he pretty much staked his reputation on the presence of iraqi weapons of mass destruction. and that turned out to be a big mistake. in hindsight, how do you think that affected him? well, i think it affected in less than people suspect. ah, yes, it was a bit of an asterisk on a long in honorable career. but again, this was a guy whose ego was very low. he probably said to himself, i regret doing this. i made a mistake. but, but for people like him that don't have a great concern about his place in history. i think he got over quite quickly. and what about his politics? i mean, he was a republican who drifted away from the g o. p, endorsing barack obama back in 2008. he was on the critical of donald trump. but
3:06 am
why do you think he never ran for president? when many people thought he would and should have well i, i think the record of military officers, particularly general officers running through president has been pretty core. you take a look at wesley clark, you take a look at why westmoreland, i think if you take a look at those ex generals that aspire to be the president, most of them have not succeeded in getting beyond the primary. and i think again, it goes back to his humility, that he didn't have that overweening need to be somebody important for the sake of an off his sake of a task as it's a mom made a great press. yeah, i mean, as he say, come in, powell was accepting loyal, he was a, a model soldier, you know, and a mentor for many black americans to what do you think his legacy will be to the american people will. unfortunately, i think his legacy will be that un speech that he made in 2003. but
3:07 am
i think those are sort of served in the military and admire what he has done and what he meant for generation of soldiers, particularly black and african american soldiers that realized there were no limits inside the military for them and others of their race. that's what he'll be remembered for. malcolm is always good to get your thoughts. thank you very much and eva talking to i deserve a thank you. now the you are state department watchdog will review the end of the biden administration's diplomatic operations in afghanistan. it'll take in the evacuation of the emerson cobble and how these special immigrant visa program was handled includes the processing of afghans as refugees and their re settlement in the united states with my kind of joins us live now from washington dc. mikes the by the administration has been under heavy criticism over the celtic withdrawal from afghanistan. so was the state department review all about them?
3:08 am
what it is exactly that it is a review, a spokesman for the inspector general's office is saying that this is a review. it is not an investigation that may be purely semantical, but as you correctly say, there's been massive criticism, not necessarily about the fact of the withdrawal, but the way in which it was conducted. and this is what the inspector general, the acting inspector general is going to be looking at. essentially 4 different areas. the issuing of special immigrant visas are the resettlement of afghan families. how they are resettle, go of going to be re settled back in the united states and a very important point as well. the emergency procedures at the embassy in kabul and whether those procedures had been sufficiently thought through and were exercised at the time of that rapid withdrawal following the advance of the taliban . so it is a wide range of investigation. we only know about it because
3:09 am
a letter has been sent to the senior members of congress, heads of various committees. being notified that this investigation or review is about to get underway, but very much a recognition of how much concern there was in congress about the manner of the withdrawal from afghanistan. yet mike and we've been hearing that the us special representative for afghanistan zelner fields that is also stepping down. what more can you tell us? well, it is perhaps the coincidence that these 2 pieces of news emerge on the same day that was appointed by president trump. then president trump back in september 2018 . he's one of the few appointees by trump to survive and the by that administration, he was the person who put together that piece deal as it was described with the taliban, which ultimately led to the shambolic in to the u. s. presence within

a gun. he's done, he has been praised by the secretary of state that doesn't appear to be much anger at his leaving. and he is going to be replaced by his deputy to the west, which allows for a continuity of movement. but remembering as well that this was a very different role that the assistant to the new representative for upcoming on affairs is going to be carrying out. there is no us present, didn't stand any more. any discussions negotiations would happen in an outside place like kata, as it has over recent years, and which is where kelly is conducted. all those negotiations which lead, as i said to that p, still signed by them. president trump, and ultimately as the shambles. that was the us withdrawal from a gun. he's done. alright, i might kind of life us there in washington, d. c. mike, thank you. at least 43 people have been killed by attackers in nigeria as
