The page, titled "General Colin L. Powell," was taken over by the same hacker who recently hacked former president George H.W. Bush's families' emails. Along with text posts, Guccifer also uploaded some of the photos he obtained from the email hacks on Powell's page.
Powell has since regained control of his page and deleted all of the hacker's posts, and Facebook has reportedly taken "immediate action to remedy the situation."
At least one screen shot was taken of a post that read: "YOU WILL BURN IN HELL, BUSH !" (emphasis his).
According to E-Hacking News, another post stated: "Kill the Illuminati! Tomorrow’s world will be a world free of Illuminati or will be no more!"
Photos leaked from Guccifer's hack showcasing George W. Bush's artwork went viral on the internet last month.
Powell continues to take heat from activists for his role in justifying the 2003 Iraq War and other actions during the Bush Administration.
In an infamous speech to the United Nations on Feb. 5, 2003, the former secretary of state claimed that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and warned that an attack was imminent. This assertion later turned out to be based on false information, and some believe he deliberately misled the public to justify the invasion.
Powell blamed the CIA for giving him faulty intelligence on the presence of WMDs in Iraq, claimed part of the intelligence community knew the information was faulty but didn't inform him before his speech and called it a "blot" on his record.
In a 2005 interview with Barbara Walters, Powell said: "I'm the one who presented it to the world, and [it] will always be a part of my record. It was painful. It is painful now."
A former aide to Powell later stated his involvement with Powell's speech on WMDs was the "lowest point" of his life.
