This news made my blood boil! I live in NJ the land of corrupt Politicians and lawlessness amoung our public officials so it should come as a surprise that a US GENERAL is breaking the law they are supposed to have written and followed. I blasted Powell on his Facebook page, I'll have to go see if I was deleted! Yes of course my cfomment was deleted but at least I wasn't blocked so I was able to repost!

"They're all over my house, doing things whenever I call for repairs, and I'm sure you've seen them at your house".

That sounds really stupid and funny at the same time.
I wouldn't expect something like that from a general.

Default Powell no longer seen illegals in his house

He hired illegal aliens before he didn't hire them?

Michelle Malkin » Crapweasel Colin Powell update: Um, on second thought, I don’t see illegal aliens in my house

Looks like DREAM Act zealot Colin Powell has been talking to his lawyer in the last 24 hours. Since boasting yesterday on the talk show circuit that he employed illegal aliens to do work on his McLean, Va. manse, he has now performed a whiplash-inducing walk back of the standard Washington variety. He “misspoke.”

You'd think a man as smart as Colin Powell (whom I've always respected and admired) wouldn't put himself in this kinda of position and then have to come back and "clear up" his statements.

You have to be ambiguous if in politics. Misspoke is PC for lying.

Yeah, a lot like remorse, after being caught.

My kids did that: "I won't do it again, I promise".
