foil in a quote

"If you really want to diminish a candidate, depict him as the foil of his handler. This is as old in American politics as politics itself."

"We can't gather the intelligence we need to foil future attacks, if we are blindly granting terrorists the right to remain silent. But for some reason, we've already done that - with the terrorist who tried to bring down Flight 253."
