Never neglect small details, even to the point of being a pest. Moments of stress, confusion, and fatigue are exactly when mistakes happen. And when everyone else’s mind is dulled or distracted, the leaders must be doubly vigilant. Always check ‘small things.' —Colin Powell

It seems that he did not verify those 'small things' with the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

WMD wasn’t a ‘small thing’ - it was a big lie.

Colin Powell was a thoughtful guy. Another favourite. ‘Don’t step on enthusiasm.’ Enthusiastic energy is the most powerful force for getting things done.

The irony …Powell alleged Iraq was hiding weapons of mass destruction However, after the U.S. had invaded Iraq and overthrown Saddam Hussein, no weapons of mass destruction were found. "Of course I regret that a lot of it turned out be wrong," he said.

Pity he didn’t do that when he sold the lie about Weapons of Mass Destruction.

Not sure if he practiced what he preached … WMD?
