In a sense I feel sorry for the likes of David Walsh and Donal Og Cusack because these people have a habit of surrounding themselves with powerful people and wangling themselves into poweful positions where people surrounding them believe in nearly anything you say.

He not only had powerful connections in swimming. He had it coming from Government down.
And he evaded justice in the end by manipulating the whole way of getting off on these things.”
