• and that the F.B.I. is on the job and has thoroughly infiltrated their ranks and watches them very closely.
This piece is a good read for all of you out there who enjoy the "cloak and dagger" type of story line; I was surprised to learn that this group had so many secrets to hide, seeing that their public relations check-list alone must have been sizable enough to occupy all their waking time.
