LETTER : Dodging his duty

Click to follow
From Mr Edward McCabe

Sir: Colin Powell has managed to maintain a highly favourable image in the press, at home and abroad. But I think the time has come to find fault with him.

He could have done so much good. But instead of sacrificing himself, he has sacrificed the cause of the entire black community in America. Never has one man failed to do so much for so many.

Bill Clinton has been dubbed a coward for dodging the draft, but in this instance it is the military man who is the wimp.

Yours sincerely,

Edward McCabe
