Since his passing, Colin Powell has been lauded as a statesman, patriot, and trailblazer for Black Americans. As a journalist, I saw another dimension to him: He was a model official in his respect for the First Amendment, and the information he provided to reporters, much of it on the record.

Thanks to This ‘Biden Whisperer,’ the World Knows America’s Back
