STATEMENT FROM THE LINCOLN PROJECT ON THE DEATH OF GENERAL COLIN L. POWELL

October 18, 2021 — Today, The Lincoln Project released the following statement:

“General Colin Powell was a groundbreaking American statesman who served our nation with honor, and decency — a general, chairman, and secretary, duty-bound to our country and democracy. Military and civic leaders of today can look to General Powell as a model of a life devoted to public service.”

Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson released the following statement:

“General Powell served as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs during my time working at the Pentagon as a young man, and I can tell you first-hand: He was every bit of the man he presented on the world stage — a leader committed to our nation’s security and devoted to its values. He will be missed by Americans from coast to coast.”
