WASHINGTON - Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, issued the following statement:

“I’m saddened by the passing of Colin Powell -- the first African American to be Secretary of State, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and National Security Advisor. I had the honor of spending a brief period of time with the General and periodically sought his advice about world affairs. His contribution to our nation will always be remembered.  My thoughts are with his family during this difficult time.”
