Former US Secretary of State Colin Powell said Wednesday at a business conference here that the war in Iraq meets the definition of a civil war. Powell made the comment during a question-and-answer session at the conference, according to a press release issued by the conference organizers. No cameras were allowed in but a conference official who listened to Powell's talk released a press release quoting his words. Powell could not be immediately reached for comment, and it was not clear if he remained in Dubai. His comments come in contrast to US President George W. Bush's statement Tuesday that Iraq is not in a civil war, but that instead al-Qaida extremists are creating cycles of violence there.
