"Colonel North, I am certain it must have been painful for you as you stated to testify that you lied to senior officials of our government, that you lied and misled our Congress and believe me it was painful for all of us to sit here and listen to that testimony. It was painful.One day I hope we will come to realize that our collective unwillingness to properly punish the mendacious traitors responsible for the Iran-Contra Affair have, as unrequited sins always do, turned around to bite us on the ass as the one-time Nisei lieutenant of the 442nd RCT warned us in vain.
It was equally painful to learn from your testimony that you lied and misled because of what you believed to be a just cause, supporters of Nicaraguan Freedom Fighters, the Contras. You have eloquently articulated your opposition to Marxism and communism. And I believe that all of us, I am certain all of us on this panel, are equally opposed to Marxism and communism. But should we in the defense of democracy adopt and embrace one of the most important tenets of communism and Marxism: the ends justify the means?"
