I Love Your Book!

I was at lunch today with a dozen or so retired Marine Corps officers. One of the “guys” blurted out that he had started reading my book, Shoot Down, and said he “couldn’t put it down.”

Authors love to hear from people who have found and love their books. It’s one thing where family and friends are polite and say the magic words, but an author just doesn’t know if their books are truly great, merely ok, or if they suck. I’ve tried to remain positive, knowing that some family and friends are going to be positive and complementary no matter what.

Then there is the unexpected “blue bird.” Like today. It put a smile on my face.

The gents sitting at the table know I’m a writer and chimed in their approval and support. One enjoyed Special Access while another said “Shoot Down is better than Clancy’s stuff.” I know I’m still learning the business but hearing such positive things motivates me to do more and do better.

Is it Espionage?

An Article submitted to the American Thinker. Expected to be published February 24, 2016.

Is it Espionage?

The latest batch of Hillary’s classified emails now totals over 1,700. Her decision to exclusively conduct official business on a separate remote and unsecure email server has placed the men and women of the Intelligence Community (IC) in turmoil. Members of the IC would never be allowed such “permissions” and it is an abuse of authority to purposefully circumvent classified information safeguards.

Within the IC there exists (at least) two systems, one classified system and an unclassified system. The Non-classified Internet Protocol (IP) Router Network (abbreviated as NIPRNet) is a private IP network used to exchange unclassified information. The Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) is a system of interconnected computer networks used by the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of State to transmit classified information. (up to and including information classified SECRET).

In a letter to the chairmen of the Senate intelligence and foreign affairs committees, the intelligence community’s inspector general, said that he has received sworn declarations that cover “several dozen emails containing classified information determined by the IC element to be at the CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET and TOP SECRET/SAP information.”

The rules for the management of Special Access Programs is in a category unto itself. SAP’s are so sensitive that even people who have security clearances giving them access to Top Secret/Sensitive Compartment Information (TS/SCI), an enormously high security clearance level, cannot have accesses to a SAP unless they receive a special indoctrination into the SAP based on an operational “must know” that exceeds all other “need to know” standards.

Compromise of a SAP is the single most dangerous security violation that can ever happen to the USA. Even the enormously damaging revelations of the Edward Snowden’s TS/SCI security compromise does not reach the level of a SAP compromise. The unauthorized disclosure and transfer of SAP information, onto something like Hillary Clinton’s unsecure server, is a class one felony. That is because such a compromise is so dangerous that it could and likely will result in the death of people protected by and within the scope of the SAP.

To transfer any classified information onto an unclassified system, you have to work at it. To transfer classified information from a secure classified system and move it to an unclassified system is not only difficult, it is illegal. It’s called espionage.

Seventy years ago, the former government lawyer and State Department official, Alger Hiss, removed classified information from the State Department. He typed them on his office typewriter, slipped the copies into a briefcase, and provided them to his Soviet agent who photographed and microfilmed them. When the FBI retrieved the spools of microfilm, the Hiss Papers printed out to a stack 4 ½ feet tall. The FBI case against Alger Hiss should have been a clear cut case of espionage, but Hiss was convicted of a lesser crime; perjury.

There is little doubt the Democratic Presidential candidate under investigation by the FBI had her State Department minions strip off the classification headers and footers of thousands of classified documents and input those documents—they had to type them into an unsecured email server. Alger Hiss found a way—he typed them—to remove classified information from the offices of the State Department. The essence of espionage is to get classified documents out of a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, a SCIF, and into the hands of “someone not authorized to receive them.”

Whittaker Chambers walked away from the Communist Party of the USA and accused the number three man at the State Department, Alger Hiss, of espionage. Hiss copied thousands of the most classified documents in the State Department on his office typewriter and for years spirited those documents out of Foggy Bottom in his briefcase. The classified originals never left the security of a SCIF. The 4 ½-foot tall stack of documents held by the FBI were so explosive, the heavily left-leaning Justice Department abandoned plans to indict Whittaker Chambers. The Justice Department was forced to find ways of watering down an indictment of Alger Hiss. He was charged and convicted of perjury.

One official involved in the investigation said that the special access program information found on Hillary Clinton’s email was so sensitive that Intelligence Community’s Inspector General, Charles McCullough and some of his aides, had to receive clearance to be “read on” the SAP before they could view the sworn declaration about the Clinton emails. The Special Access Program material does not appear to be the same two Top Secret emails identified earlier among the hundreds of classified emails found on Clinton’s server.

FBI may refer Hillary Clinton and her staff—Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and Jake Sullivan—for indictment for the simple charge of mishandling classified information. But don’t bet the rent money. Over the last 70 years, Left-leaning Justice Departments have a history of watering down or drowning any indictment of top-level Democrats caught in the act or suspected of conducting classic espionage.

Border Walls and the Duncan Hunter books

It’s an election year and the issue of illegal immigration is a hot topic. In this episode of Special Access, Duncan Hunter is at breakfast with some of those damn “Yankees” from the East Coast. Hunter has a story and the solution. His new best friend, Greg Lynche, is curious.

From Special Access:
“Duncan, I have to ask what’s the real deal with illegal immigration? I swear every other vehicle we pass has Mexican license plates. Back home, some folks think we should build a fence along the border to stop illegal immigration.”
Hunter nodded. “First the tags. Those people have bona fide legal documents. Illegal aliens either have none or have counterfeit papers. That’s what makes them illegal. If you have a job and a house in Mexico, you can come over here just like we can go over there to visit and shop.”
“Interesting.”
“I didn’t know any of this until I took this job. It’s truly fascinating work. Let me tell you a story. The guy who’s watching your plane, First Sergeant Alex Duron, and I went to a little town outside Houston to take delivery of some above-ground storage tanks. I got a G-ride—sorry, an unmarked sedan—out of the motor pool, and we drove six hours to get there.
“Alex had the same shirt on when you met him, Border Patrol green with a USBP patch over his left breast. That’s recognized anywhere within 500 miles of the border. In big gold letters on the back are the words AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE.
“We drove up to the corporate main office right near the plant. When I stepped out of the car, I looked over to where the huge plant was making six-, eight-, and ten-thousand-gallon above-ground storage tanks with a pebbly finish.”
“Yeah. I know the kind you’re talking about.”
“Right. I can tell you that every one of the plant workers watched our unmarked vehicle enter the parking lot. When Alex got out in his green Border Patrol shirt, they threw down their tools and ran for the fence to get as far from the car and that shirt as they could. They were really high-tailing it.
“I told Alex, ‘Tell ‘em we’re not here to bust anyone and to get back to work.’”
Lynche and Yoder smiled, then burst out laughing with a you have-to-be-kidding-me look. They shook their heads in amazement.
“I can’t make that shit up,” Hunter said. “It got better. As I turned to the CEO and company leaders who came out to greet us, the CEO had an expression of sheer terror. He tried to find the right words, but what came out was, ‘I swear they have good I-9s.’ I looked at him and said, ‘They obviously aren’t that good.’ There are millions of those guys with completely bogus documents in the country working all kinds of jobs. They have bogus identities. Some are probably stolen. What can you do when the democrats look at each one as a potential voter? It’s crazier than you can possibly image. It won’t be long before we elect an illegal alien with great bogus papers. Mark my words.”
“That’s incredible, Duncan. The fence?”
“When you leave here, head north twenty miles past the dam and see how the mighty Rio Grande has carved its way through 500 feet of solid granite. We have this amazing moat three to four hundred feet across with walls that are 400 feet of smooth granite. If someone can cross there, a little fence won’t slow him down. Politicians who think a fence is the answer are idiots. They don’t come out here to talk to the Border Patrol agents who know what we need to secure the border, and a fence isn’t it. Go out to the Tucson and Yuma Sectors and look at the desert. That’s another natural fence. The Rio Grande is a moat. Strategic fencing from Otay Mesa to the Pacific to separate Tijuana and San Diego is the right answer. Fencing 2,000 miles of open country and private property is pure stupidity.”
“That makes sense,” Yoder said.
“You can see what’s wrong with liberalism here on the border. The liberals go out of their way purposely to prevent law enforcement from enforcing the law, while facilitating other illegal activity. Republicans are in a constant state of war with the Democrats. One side wants to secure the border. The other side undermines the law and the efforts of law enforcement. Pick any topic, and it’s the same. Out here, it’s the trenches, and you see it all up front and personal. If you talk to a Border Patrol agent, you’ll find they’re all exasperated. To a man they won’t say we need fences everywhere but surveillance aircraft and more ground agents.”

USMexBorder_183004973

It’s really very simple. When they try to or come over the fence, you need an agent waiting to apprehend them. The Border Patrol doesn’t have enough manning to patrol the border, to function as a deterrent. And when the Democrats are in charge, they pull back the operations and maintenance funding so the few number of Border Patrol Agents that are on duty are unable to take their vehicles out to the field to apprehend those that have climbed over the natural and physical fencing.

Democratic shenanigans are another set of reasons the Duncan Hunter character isn’t a fan of the liberal politican.

Special Access, Revisited

At the time of its drafting, Special Access was intentionally ripped from the pages of newspapers and the manufactured network news. The basic story had been banging around my head for several years, beginning with some of the discussion surrounding one of the Democratic Presidential candidates. The President’s candidacy was a topic even when I was working in Liberia. When I got on a plane in Dallas and had a federal judge sitting next to me tell me the President is a fraud and it was well known inside the Judicial Branch. The judge confirmed something I had suspected that it had nothing to do where the President was born but how he was born. Having spent a little time with the Border Patrol where I acquired more than a working knowledge of immigration laws and policy, I fully understood what the good judge was referring to. And that is the interesting definition of “natural born citizen.”

U.S. Constitution – Article 2 Section 1. In part: No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President….

The judge and I knew the Constitution and the Founder’s intent regarding “natural born” citizenship—the offspring of two American citizens. From the Federalist Papers, a “natural-born citizen” means “one who is a citizen by no act of law.” If a person owes their citizenship to some act of law (dual citizenship and naturalization for example), they cannot be considered a natural-born citizen. This leads us to the accepted rule of universal law in defining “natural-born citizen” under the laws of nature–laws the Founders recognized and embraced. Defining “natural-born citizen” is also the accepted rule of law of nearly every country of the United Nations. Countries have a claim on their citizens whether they are at home or abroad. In the case of our President, his father was a British subject of the country now called Kenya. Like our Constitution, the Kenyan constitution defines citizenship and how citizenship is conferred on the children of citizens that are abroad. In the eyes of the Kenyan government, any child born of one of their citizens is a Kenyan national. In the eyes of the U.S. government, any child born of one of our citizens is an American. As stated earlier, if a person owes their citizenship to some act of law (such as dual citizenship), they cannot be considered a natural-born citizen. Ipso facto, our President was elected even when he wasn’t even eligible. The media touted their definition of what a “natural-born citizen” means–physically being born in the USA–while ignoring the fact that the President wasn’t born of two American parents. The dirty little secret in Washington DC is that everyone in Congress knows the President was never eligible to be President, under the Constitution. This includes members of the Judicial Branch and the media. They are so corrupt they accept we have an “illegitimate President.” The media and the Democratic Party leverage race as a means to continue the fiction of the President’s ineligibility and fraudulent election.

Thus, watching the corrupt Democratic Party and the corrupt media bludgeon the weak Republican Party candidate into accepting the media’s and Democratic Party’s new definition of what a “natural-born citizen” means led me to the thesis of my first book: A CIA file proves the President is not who he claims to be.

In Special Access, the protagonist, Duncan Hunter, finds corrupt government employees and exposes them. As a former Border Patrol official, he is aware of immigration laws of the country as well as the Constitutional requirements to be President. He acquires and releases the President’s CIA file (sort of like Eric Snowden) which forces the Congress into action, such as impeachment. But in the fictional world of Duncan Hunter and an illegitimate President, once the President has been exposed as a fraud, he runs away to his home state and disappears.

Which sets up Duncan Hunter to try and find the former President in book four, tentatively titled “Blown Cover.”

Another Headline collides with the Duncan Hunter Novels

The headline reads: Rogue ‘Terminator’ robots which can kill without human orders could become reality in just a few years. Killer robots that can execute without human intervention will become a reality within years unless there is a global agreement to ban them, warns a leading scientist.

In the Hunter novels, the CIA has already developed and deployed killer robots to protect certain facilities. From No Need to Know:

The sturdy chain link fence was topped with thick concertina wire, and on both sides of the fence large coils of razor wire were expanded like a concertina to the corners of the fencing. Anyone who came upon the razor wire and the signs in what would be considered a forest would have no doubt they had found an official government facility and that facility’s defenses were not meant to be breeched.

The lanky deputy chief of security briefed the lithe athletic women where cameras were located as well as the general area where a battery of seismic sensors were located, both on the other side of the fence and inside the fence, or what the deputy called, “inside the wire.” At the end of his brief, in the confines of the Bunker, the deputy chief of security explained where the most obvious lines of attack could be anticipated—through the front gate; a frontal assault—and the least expected—a1,200-foot very steep climb up the mountain, on each flank and from the rear. “But you have little to worry about, this house is well protected inside and out, as you see inside it’s a vault; and outside, you have an emergency ‘High-Output User-autonomous Defensive System’ HOUDS. It’s a last ditch system; for those that may have been in the military, it provides what is called ‘final protective fires.” Smart artificial intelligence coupled with extremely high output fires—or rounds of ammo. We call it the ‘Hounds from Hell.’”

SHARP CLAW 1 UGV (Unmanned Ground Vehicle) CHINESE (2)

“Listen up—it’s very intuitive. To protect this property in an emergency, from the control station in the bunker you activate the system with one click of a mouse and select the targets from the camera system, with a double click. Six tracked robots with microwave and infrared sensors will leave their charging station near the barn and will locate and —as the user interface—close in on your selected target or targets. Once the Hounds sense the target or targets, they flip into autonomous mode and engage any moving target. Hounds can pick up the slightest variation of movement, meaning it can detect a human breathing at 100 feet; the rise and fall of ones chest. Once the target is acquired, the Hounds lock onto the targets and engage them; subjecting the targets to the withering fire of an electrically-driven Gatling gun. Twenty-two caliber long rifle. Control rate of fire of 2,000 rounds per minute; three-second bursts of about 100 rounds; shoot-look-shoot, five thousand rounds in the bucket. The Hounds can launch smoke or fragmentation grenades for final defensive fires. There are no known defenses to this system. It’s been recently installed. And ladies, you cannot be outside the safe house if the Hounds are released and are on the prowl. You’ll see a ‘recall’ icon on the security panel which will interrupt the Hounds work and send the pack of six critters back to their stations. The Hounds should eliminate or delay any threats until reinforcements arrive. That is the end of my brief. Questions? If not, good luck.”

And you thought Bond’s “Q” made all the fun stuff.

Old Heroes and one Younger Beautiful CIA Senior Executive

Two of the better movies are RED and RED2. RED is the acronym for Retired Extremely Dangerous. It’s a comedy about a group of superannuated CIA killers. The underlying theme of RED and RED2 are some old CIA programs or from obsolete CIA files, and the Agency has to dispose of the retired assassins. The Duncan Hunter books highlight the actions of “older” intelligence officers, starting with the Director of the CIA to the retired military guys (Hunter & McGee), and the youngest of the bunch is the forty-something Nazy Cunningham, a former Muslima who defected from Islam. Not the usual fare. Not a comedy although there are many comedic scenes.

The Hunter books also highlight that the programs and files they deal with and are a part of, they are not not just any CIA files but, like the RED movies, old files. Files that should have been sent to the archives or the burn bag but somehow managed to pop up in the most unusual settings or at the most inappropriate times. An illegal alien that becomes the President–there is a hidden file on him–and the CIA and all the President’s men are looking for it. The President negotiates with terrorists and pays the terrorist billions–there is a black program that has CIA agents facilitating the payments. In No Need to Know, several unrelated old files come together for an explosive story.

Purposely, there is a little bit of truth in these imaginary old CIA files. They are ripped from today’s headlines. And some files come from unusual sources, like defectors. These can often provide a treasure trove of old intelligence that is relevant for today’s world view and foreign policy.

Old files, old pilots, old airplanes, old CIA guys, old SEALs. And one young beautiful CIA senior executive that is in the middle of them all.

Presidential Headlines and the Duncan Hunter Books

A great fan of the Duncan Hunter books dropped me an email.

Been watching the news the past weeks and noticed how Hilary Clinton’s headlines have followed your book titles…. “Special Access,” “No Need to Know.” Will the next one be “Indictment and Conviction”? On the other hand, will “Shoot Down” apply?

I replied that I thought, “Shoot Down might apply after tonight’s NH Primaries.”

Just cannot make up this stuff.

They are not on our Side, Part Three

As stated in an earlier post, today we have a Presidential candidate “under investigation by the FBI,” whatever that is supposed to mean. Does that mean she is being investigated for _________? Please fill in the blank.

Sixty-five years ago the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recounted the conviction of Alger Hiss. The State Department described Hiss as a “well-educated and well-connected former government lawyer and State Department official who helped create the United Nations in the aftermath of World War II.” When Alger Hiss was indicted, the central issue of the trial was espionage. Specifically, how Hiss removed classified materials from the State Department (he typed them and slipped the copies into a briefcase) and how those documents were given to “someone not authorized to receive them.” That someone was Whittaker Chambers. Mr. Chambers, at the time, was an agent of the USSR. Mr. Chambers maintained a copy of the microfilm of the Hiss papers–affectionately called the “Pumpkin Papers,” as the microfilm was hidden in a pumpkin in the back yard of Chambers’ farm.

The left and the media is very quick to hollow out any hint of impropriety by our Presidential candidate “under investigation by the FBI.” The major news networks will not cover it (sounds like Pravda!). One of the media’s greatest powers is the “power to ignore.” It’s not news until they say it’s news. Newspapers and correspondents that venture close to the story insist that “there’s nothing to see here” or the usual cry that “the vast right wing conspiracy” is alive and well, doing what it can to undermine our candidate. If anything is said, it is spun in a positive light, such as the candidate “under investigation by the FBI” insists that what she did during her tenure at the State Department (that is, procure a private computer server and run an off-government email service) “was permissible.” Ergo, what could the FBI be investigating? Not Espionage, of course, but perjury. That’s right, perjury. Espionage carries jail time. Perjury carries a fine. See the case of General Petraeus.

No one will announce on a major news network or newspaper that our Democratic Presidential front-runner was caught running an espionage ring. Our Presidential candidate “under investigation by the FBI” had her minions strip off the classification headers and footers of classified documents and input those documents into an unsecured email server. Alger Hiss typed his own papers of the classified documents that passed through his fingers. The FBI noted that, “Hiss was charged with perjury; he could not be indicted for espionage because the statute of limitations had run out.” Do I see a trend?

In the case of Alger Hiss, the FBI did little to explain the nature of “the Pumpkin Papers.” The five microfilm canisters that comprise the Pumpkin Papers contained “no information of importance.” If the Hiss papers contained “no information of importance,” then why did the #3 guy at the State Department type out thousands of documents over a period of years? Today’s Presidential candidate “under investigation by the FBI” and the left have embarked on a series of talking points that they contend the Server Papers contained “no information of importance” or “the other Secretaries of State did the same thing.”

At a point in the investigation, the FBI is reluctant to describe the range and depth of the treachery of the Presidential candidate “under investigation by the FBI.” Like Alger Hiss, she insists her emails contained “no information of importance.” This is eerily similar to the FBI’s admission 65 years ago: “The ‘Pumpkin Papers’ contained images of State Department materials–including notes in Hiss’ own handwriting.” This statement was intended to whitewash Congressman’s Richard Nixon’s press conference, who paraded microfilm still unprocessed–and whose chief goal was to pressure Justice toward indicting Hiss and not Chambers. The left had a stranglehold on the Justice Department (like today) and according to Whittaker Chambers, the Justice Department was preparing to move against him and that it was actively making plans to indict him and not Alger Hiss, for perjury.

Look for the communist-infiltrated Justice Department to water down any indictment of the Presidential candidate “under investigation by the FBI.”

In the Duncan Hunter books, Hunter knows the State Department and the Justice Department had been infiltrated by communist and Islamist sympathizers. He just cannot prove it. Hunter is talking to the Director of the CIA.

From No Need to Know:
“You’re incorrigible. While you’ve been out hunting bad guys I ordered everyone to be re-scoped at CIA. I also told the State Department if any of their people are holding an Agency clearance, they need to be scoped as well otherwise I’m pulling their clearance. No more access.”
“That’s huge. But everyone already receives a polygraph—what’s one more?”
Lynche said, “I’m asking them if they’re a communist. Or an Islamist.”
“Oh, I know! I had mine this morning. I thought the questions were a dramatic shift from the norm. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot over?”
“I’m asking them if they’re communist or are they an Islamist sympathizer. And now, with the President’s approval, even political appointees get one. That should make even you happy.”
Hunter was confused and his furrowed brows and scowl only amplified his concern. “About friggin’ time. What changed from the last time we had this discussion?”
“I know it’s an old joke. State, Justice and much of the FBI is infiltrated….” Lynche gestured with his hands in the ether.
“I could have told you that; hell, that’s not news.”
“Well, now we’re going to find out whose side they’re really playing for. The infiltration is unprecedented, and I told the President it has to stop otherwise we will lose the country.”

They are not on our Side, Part Two

Today we have a Presidential candidate under investigation by the FBI. The left and the media wants to believe that “there’s nothing to see here” amid cries of having a personal email server which received and processed classified information “was permissible.” What could the FBI be investigating? Espionage, of course. No one has yet to announce on a major news network or newspaper that our Democratic Presidential front-runner is running an espionage ring.

Let’s go back a half century or so, when the former Communist Whittaker Chambers accused Alger Hiss, the number three guys at the State Department, of espionage. Alger Hiss used the typewriter in his office to copy verbatim the classified correspondence that went into and came out of the Secretary of State’s office. When the FBI retrieved the microfilm canisters from Mr. Chambers’ back yard, the documents Alger Hiss smuggled out of the State Department was a stack, four and a half feet tall. Secret and top secret documents. Our Presidential candidate under investigation by the FBI had her underlings strip the classification of documents and input them into an unsecured email account. There is no difference between Alger Hiss using a typewriter to copy verbatim classified correspondence and the former Secretary of State having her underlings strip the classification of top secret documents and input them into an unsecured email account. They purposefully violated the laws that govern the protection, handling, and storage of classified materials in order to remove them from the State Department. Who should receive these stolen documents should be fairly obvious. Alger Hiss did it for the Soviet Union. We’ll have to wait and see who was the beneficiary of the work done by the Presidential candidate under investigation by the FBI.

In the Duncan Hunter books, our fearless hero knows those in the upper echelons of the State Department are closet Communists.

From No Need to Know:

“You’re incorrigible. While you’ve been out hunting bad guys I ordered everyone to be re-scoped at CIA. I also told the State Department if any of their people are holding an Agency clearance, they need to be scoped as well otherwise I’m pulling their clearance. No more access.”
“That’s huge. But everyone already receives a polygraph—what’s one more?”
Lynche said, “I’m asking them if they’re a communist. Or an Islamist.”
“Oh, I know! I had mine this morning. I thought the questions were a dramatic shift from the norm. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot over?”
“I’m asking them if they’re communist or are they an Islamist sympathizer. And now, with the President’s approval, even political appointees get one. That should make even you happy.”
Hunter was confused and his furrowed brows and scowl only amplified his concern. “About friggin’ time. What changed from the last time we had this discussion?”
“I know it’s an old joke. State, Justice and much of the FBI is infiltrated….” Lynche gestured with his hands in the ether.
“I could have told you that; hell, that’s not news.”
“Well, now we’re going to find out whose side they’re really playing for. The infiltration is unprecedented, and I told the President it has to stop otherwise we will lose the country.”
Hunter blurted out, “Greg! The White House was a sleeper cell!”
“I know! I know. Why do you think I’m having everyone polygraphed?”
“You’re starting to sound like me. That is spooky Greg. Whittaker Chambers effectively said the same thing and the House Un-American Activities Committee essentially proved the government was overrun by closet communists. Verona papers, Mitrokhin archives. Proof.” Hunter’s interest was piqued. “And, I didn’t need a polygrapher to prove it. I’ve even said so—how many times have I said Foggy Bottom is nothing but a snake’s den of closet commies and liberals. They’ve hired their fellow traveler buddies for decades. You couldn’t get a Republican in there even if he parachuted onto the building.”
“You’re right on that account.” Lynche smirked at Hunter, who broke out in a broad smile. “We’ve had over thirty retirements just this morning; they dropped their papers and turned in their badges before they went to their polygraph. Everyone scheduled from State has either retired or asked for an extension or resigned. They’re busy over there.”
