  • LOL! I don't see any raised hands either. And it bugs me, too, Sweet. We are at war with these people. Have none of our present agents read any history (or novels, for that matter?) because double agents have been known to exist for a long time, now. This is one case where I believe it is appropriate to say that someone acted "stupidly". I'm just sorry it had to happen, and end like it did.
