3221Re: Probes wired?
- May 15, 2005The advantage of the Probe agents were that they had field knowledge.
Probe Control only worked to facilitate their knowledge, either if
environment or research.
The Probe wouldn't have to divulge that he was wired. Most of the
stories, as I recall, centered around recovery. That is what World
Securities was in the business to do. Of course, it would be nice to
arrest the bad guy, but if theri plans were foiled, they might have
been convicted on the evidence, and not the testimony of the Probe agent.
