Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair, Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and Louis Freeh.
Frontline’s investigation of international bribery, through the lens of the BAE al-Yamamah case, may be the most compelling television I have ever seen. The fact that Louis Freeh is now Prince Bandar’s mouthpiece just puts the icing on the cake.
