It so happens I've read the DEA report in question. It 'fell off
the truck' into the hands of a journalist friend who wrote about
it. He asked me about it a week ago Thursday?Friday.
I read it and also asked a friend, someone retired from a
midlevel military CI investigator position. While there are lots

both of us that it was not a IDFI operation. First was the fact

been asked to report any such activity. 90% came back with some
description, some highly detailed. Two or three, ones outside
CONUS, said "not here"..
But one domestic office, clearly not wanting to be left out,

record. He had zippo ties to .il; but dammit, he WAS selling
cheesy art. Book 'em, Danno.

up at my office, and guess what he was selling. Maybe I should
have interrogated him in Hebrew, but mine is not even at the
