UNITED NATIONS, October 20 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's permanent mission to the UN has received a letter from U.S. Republican presidential candidate John McCain asking for financial support of his election campaign, the mission said in a statement on Monday.

In this respect we have to reiterate that neither Russia's permanent mission to the UN nor the Russian government or its officials finance political activities in foreign countries," the statement said.

The ambassador's title was not included in the letter, and was not clear why the letter had taken over two weeks to arrive.

Colin Powell has been a stooge his whole life. From helping to cover up the My Lai massacre to helping sell the Iraq war. He's a younger version of Henry Kissinger. The media perpetuates the myth that he is an honorable man who speaks truth to power when in fact he is a toadie who tells his superiors what they want to hear and carries out their war crimes w/o asking questions.

Maybe his endorsement of Obama is a form of redemption for his crimes, or maybe just another example of Powell waiting until the dust has settled & then taking the side of the winner, hoping for another cabinet post.
