Gen. Powell - U.S. Must Reduce Global Poverty

"I think we have to do a lot more with respect to poverty alleviation and helping the needy people of the world. We need to increase the amount of resources we put into our development programs to help the rest of the world. Because when you help the poorest in the world--to start to move them up an economic and social ladder—and they’re not going to be moving toward violence or terrorism of the kind that we worry about.” Gen. Colin Powell on Meet the Press.
