Topic - Michael A. Ledeen
Michael Ledeen sets his central theme with a quote from "The Generous Gambler" by Baudelaire: "[The Devil] avowed to me that he had been afraid, relatively as to his proper power, once only, once only, and that was on the day when he had heard a preacher … cry in his pulpit: 'My dear brethren, do not ever forget.
