Today's Political Question

Who said the following:

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger." (emphasis ours)
A) Karl Rove
B) George W. Bush
C) Paul Wolfowitz
D) Donald Rumsfeld
E) Herman Goering
F) Vladimir Putin
G) Tony Blair
H) Dick Cheney

The answer is: E) Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials

Readers of The Peach should not only find this quote pertinent, they should find it frightening.
