The People

“The Fish Rots From the Head”While some may still believe that crimes committed by our government were from “a few bad apples”, it is clear from the documentation that these crimes had an authoritative source coming straight from the White House; most often from the Office of the Vice President. In order to understand how these systems work, how particular participants operate within the structure, and the chain of command and accountability present within the system, it helps to know the players.
If we are to believe in “bad apples” then we must look at the tree they spring from, the ground it grows from, and the water and sunshine it will require to not have “bad apples”.
