President Washington: "Before we executed Benedict Arnold, many traitors defended him,
by arguing that he did nothing of substance.
In truth, these traitors did thus declare that they, too, in truth, were -- also traitors.
American has never needed to hang these traitors more than today.
I would have hanged all of miserable these traitors if it was the last thing I could do on God's earth.

President Washington: "Before we executed Benedict Arnold, ............"

In order to avoid any "fake but accurate" on our part, it should be noted that Benedict Arnold was never executed. He served in a few campaigns on the British side after his failed plot, was transferred to England in 1781 and died in England of natural causes in 1801.
