I am not saying that Hitler was a choir boy. But I am saying, let him who was innocent in the Second World War cast the first stone.
I was really just the tea boy to begin with, or the equivalent thereof, but I quickly announced, innocently but very ambitiously, that I wanted to be, I was going to be, a foreign correspondent.
Boy, do I hate to lose.
The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool.
