 Powell says, 'I've never seen anything like this'


BANDA ACEH, Indonesia - Secretary of State Colin Powell flew over a muddy brown moonscape of hundreds of flattened palm trees and shattered houses Wednesday after saying the U.S. effort to help tsunami victims shows American generosity and values in action.

“I’ve been in war and I’ve been a diplomat ... but I’ve never seen anything like this,” he said after a 30-minute helicopter tour.

Powell said he was particularly struck by the scene of utter devastation along the shoreline, where “the wave came ashore, pushing everything in its path.”

Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, whose state was hit by four hurricanes last year, appeared shaken at the sight and echoed Powell’s amazement. “I’ve never seen anything like this in my experience,” he said.
