Former Secretary of State and retired Gen. Colin Powell has died at age 84, his family announced Monday.
Article by Zachary Stieber from our premium news partners at The Epoch Times.
The death came despite Powell being fully vaccinated against the virus that causes COVID-19. Powell was being cared for at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
“We want to thank the medical staff at Walter Reed National Medical Center for their caring treatment. We have lost a remarkable and loving husband, father, grandfather and a great American,” the family said.
Walter Reed did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Powell, born on April 5, 1937, in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood, served for 35 years in the Army, including two tours in Vietnam.
He was part of the Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush administrations, with positions including national security adviser, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and secretary of state.
Powell was a Republican but had grown increasingly disenchanted with the party, appearing at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in 2020 and endorsing then-candidate Joe Biden over incumbent Donald Trump.
Condolences began coming in Monday after news of Powell’s death spread.
“He was a great public servant, starting with his time as a soldier during Vietnam. Many Presidents relied on General Powell’s counsel and experience,” former President George W. Bush said on Twitter.
“This is hitting me hard. Colin Powell was a statesman who put his country & family above all else. As a young Black man, he inspired me & showed that there are no limits to what we can be or achieve. Sending my prayers to his family. Rest In Peace,” added Jaime Harrison, the chair of the DNC.
PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
