Charlie Wilson:
I stood in Harold Holt's office in Islamabad, and I offered him the keys to the safe. I said to him, "What do you need?" And I was apparently annoying him.
Gust Avrakotos:
Well, that's because Harold Holt is a tool. He's a cake-eater, he's a clown, he's a bad station chief, and I don't like to cast aspersions on a guy, but he's going to get us all killed.

Congressman. He's a cake-eater.
He's a clown.He's a bad station chief.

a guy, but he's gonna get us all killed.
Really? Yeah.
Well, how does he expect to defeat
the Soviets in Afghanistan without...
He said, "A sudden influx of
money..." Yeah, an influx of money
and new weaponry would draw attention.
He's not trying to defeat
the Soviets, Congressman.
