    Yes Edmund, evil did succeed since no one was able to come forth with any evidence without being killed or imprisoned by Bush and the U.S. Government. Oliver North enjoyed telling people such as Jeb Bush that "the cause of death" for certain individuals had not been decided on yet, whether it be an accident, suicide, poisoning, being thrown from a plane or just a bullet. Read Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA by Terry Reed (ex Air Force Intelligence) and John Cummings (New York Newsday); and/or The Conspirators by Al Martin, retired U.S. Navy Lt. Commander and former officer in the Office of Naval Inteligence.

    It's also interesting that on the same article there was the following quote:

    "Evil will succeed only if enough good people do nothing."

    - Edmund Burke
