Is Pompeo Cardassian?

"He should be brought back from Russia and given due process, and I think the proper outcome would be that he would be given a death sentence" reminds me of this exchange...

Gul Dukat: In Cardassia, the verdict is always known before the trial begins; and it's always the same.

Commander Sisko: In that case, why bother with a trial at all?

Gul Dukat: Because the people demand it. They enjoy watching justice triumph over evil, every time. They find it comforting.

Commander Sisko: Isn't there ever a chance you might try an innocent man by mistake?

Gul Dukat: Cardassians don't make mistakes.

Commander Sisko: I'll have to remember that.
