In Powell's Endorsement he spoke of an American Muslim Soldier that Died...here is more on that soldier...
What Colin Powell said about Muslims in his Endorsement on MEET THE PRESS....
Powell also spoke passionately against the insinuations by some Republicans that Obama is a Muslim.
"Well, the correct answer is, he is not a Muslim, he's a Christian. He's always been a Christian," he said. "But the really right answer is, what if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer's no, that's not America. Is there something wrong with some seven-year-old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she could be president? Yet, I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion, 'He's a Muslim and he might be associated terrorists.' This is not the way we should be doing it in America."
Click the title to read about the Soldier he referenced.....very sad. The Article with the original photo was in the New Yorker.
This is the young man's Newark Obituary. I think Powell did was right to mention this Muslim Soldier, how many more that we don't know about.....
