Powell Accuses Cheney of Cheap Shots

Mark Wilson

Former secretary of state Colin Powell isn't happy being written about by his fellow Bush administration cabinet member. Powell told CBS's Face the Nation that former vice president Dick Cheney took "cheap shots" at him in Cheney's new memoir, In My Time. Cheney writes that Powell undermined President George W. Bush by criticizing the administration. But Powell said he gave his best advice to the president, and also ridiculed Cheney's claim that the book would "make heads explode." "My head isn't exploding," Powell said. "I haven't noticed any other heads exploding in Washington."
