I believe the answer is no!”

  • The part where at cabinet meetings Ashcroft kept asking if he could “pet the rabbits.”
  • The part where he said “It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead. “  But to be fair, it was the chapter on Cheney, and that part checked out.
