6. Very telling quote
<"I was shocked because I worked with him closely," Colson said on MSNBC. "And you would think the deputy director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, you could talk to with the same confidence you could talk to a priest." Then on CNN: "I was shocked because ... I talked to him often and trusted him with very sensitive materials.>

Colson talked about ILLEGAL activities to the second highest man in a LAW enforcement organization and expected that he would have the confidenciality given to comments to a priest. (Doesn't a priest only have this confidence in the confessional anyway.) The arrogance is he thought he could talk to the FBI and they would ignore it.
