Oliver North Beats the Rap

Oliver North, quarterback of the Iran-contra scandal, has won dismissal of his criminal convictions because the prosecution can't prove he had a perfect trial, utterly free of error. He pronounces himself "totally exonerated."
That's a wild overstatement. It's as though Ernesto Miranda had claimed that the Supreme Court gave him a character reference when it threw out his famous confession for crimes in Arizona because the police had not read him his rights.
