Adlai Stevenson Moment Revisited

In 1962 U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Adlai Stevenson II presented proof to the Security Council of the Soviet Union's movement of nuclear weapons to Cuba. This has been referred to as the "Adlai Stevenson Moment". When Colin Powell presented his "evidence" of Iraqi non-compliance with weapons inspectors many in the corporate media likened Powells presentation to the Adlai Stevenson moment.
Now, however, former bipartisan senators one of whom is the son of Adlai Stevenson, Adlai Stevenson III, former senator of Illinois, has come out in opposition to the US attacking Iraq. This seems more of an Adlai Stevenson Moment than anything Powell has done.
