Colin Powell resigns, promises to work until the end

The retired four-star general resigns from the White House, which gives every reason to believe that Bush's new team will have a whole new look.

&to=' target=_blank>Secretary of State Colin Powell, the retired four-star general who often clashed with more hawkish members of the administration on Iraq and other foreign policy issues, resigned in a Cabinet exodus that promises a starkly different look to President Bush's second-term team.

"I assure you, I'll be working hard until the very, very end," he told reporters at the State Department, adding that he and Mr. Bush came to a "mutual agreement" that it was time for him to resign. Chief White House Correspondent John Roberts reports that Mr. Bush has asked National Security adviser &to=' target=_blank>Condoleezza Rice to succeed Powell. An announcement is expected on Tuesday.

A senior administration official says Steve Hadley, deputy national security adviser, will become Mr. Bush's new national security adviser, reports CBC2 Chicago.

According to Chicago Sun Times, Powell will be missed in foreign ministries around the world, where Rice is distrusted precisely because she is so close to President Bush. However, his loss will not have much impact on the success or failure of U.S. foreign policy. The presence of Powell at State did not alleviate the Bush administration's global unpopularity.

He announced his intention to create a news service called "Pravda," which means "truth" in Russian. Well, we are Pravda. The Pravda.Ru website has been working professionally in Russia since 1999
