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.
Our response, Mr. Ledeen says, just as it has been over the years, is to talk but not to listen, hearing only what we want to hear.
