Colin Powell Email Files

DCLeaks.com posted on September 14, 2016, a set of emails to and from Colin Luther Powell.

From the homepage for those leaked emails:

Colin Luther Powell is an American statesman and a retired four-star general in the United States Army. He was the 65th United States Secretary of State, serving under U.S. President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2005, the first African American to serve in that position. During his military career, Powell also served as National Security Advisor (1987–1989), as Commander of the U.S. Army Forces Command (1989) and as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (1989–1993), holding the latter position during the Persian Gulf War. Born in Harlem as the son of Jamaican immigrants, Powell was the first, and so far the only, African American to serve on the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the first of two consecutive black office-holders to serve as U.S. Secretary of State.

The leaked emails start in June of 2014 and end in August of 2016.

Access to the emails is by browsing and/or full text searching.

Try your luck at finding Powell’s comments on Hillary Clinton or former Vice-President Cheney. Searching one chunk of emails at a time.

I appreciate and admire DCLeaks for taking the lead in posting this and similar materials. And I hope they continue to do so in the future.

However, the access offered reduces a good leak to a random trickle.

This series will use the Colin Powell emails to demonstrate better leaking practices.

Coming Monday, September 26, 2016 – Bulk Access to the Colin Powell Emails.
