    Oliver North was only convicted on 3 charges. None of which were misappropriation of Government funds.

    And from reading that it would appear those convictions were vacated.

    vacated or not, oliver north should be sitting in a fucking jail cell right this moment. Justice was not served when all it comes down to is who you know.

    Ya cause anyone alleged to have done something by a partisan witch hunt must have done it, right? Remind me again when he was tried and convicted on that charge?

    Oliver North did as he was told. Anyone that thinks a LtCol in the US Marine Corps has the power to do what North was accused of needs to see me about buying some land.

    Wht it comes down to is Oliver North captured the attention of a nation with his steadfast refusal to implicate his seniors.

    It's easy to sit here and judge. Wait until you are given an unlawful, but morally correct order before judging someone in such a harsh manner. Everything's not so simple when you're out there.
