But it kind of misfired, Arthur Eve actually said it was as good as signing his death warrant. Can you tell me about what was the intent and what happened?

RUSSELL OSWALD:

SHEILA C. BERNARD:

Don't pay any attention to him.

RUSSELL OSWALD:

All that time and all that work, and then say, they weren't part of it. They, they subsequently tried to say, and Arthur Reeve was apparently was one of them, who said, Well, it's my agenda for death. Why? I don't understand that. We all agreed on it. And I merely said, here is what we agreed on, which was true.

SHEILA C. BERNARD:

If you could just give it to me a little more people understand what it is you're talking about.

RUSSELL OSWALD:

The set of demands.
