Highjacking the Nation

On the topics of the day, just came across a really interesting post on

The Highjacking of a Nation
by Sibel Edmonds (formerly of FBI) at . Reminded me of Dorothy Rowe's book on our relationship with money and conspiracy not to count enormous amounts that go into:
1. arms dealing (of all kinds) and 2. narcotics trade
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder[er] is less to fear.” -- Marcus Tullius Cicero

This is the quote from the end of the article! Love it - and will try to try to find Latin original.
