Phil Boas: How advocating for invading Iraq mars Colin Powell's legacy

The Show regularly checks in with the Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell died Oct. 18. And his legacy is remembered with mixed reactions.

Editorial page editor Phil Boas of the Republic wrote a column panning Powell's most memorable — and controversial — move: his advocacy of the invasion of Iraq.

The Show spoke with Boas to learn about how Powell's actions play out even after his death.
