    Here's the M16 SS HQ in London. Ugly as a tree stump. I wonder if his accuser, also an agent, get the same treatment? The article does not address that matter directly, but it appeared not. Typical British?

    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    Ole Bond did get forceful with a few of those "bond girls" over the years.

    The request for anonymity came from the PROSECUTION, not the defense. It's still an unusual situation with (possible) ramifications down the road, but I really don't see a better alternative in this case. The man has been charged, not convicted. He is innocent of any wrongdoing until proven otherwise. Is it "just" to reveal his identity and place him in real, immediate danger while he is still innocent? What would be the fall out for other deep undercover agents if any accusation - no matter if it was proven untrue - would "out" them and put them (and perhaps others that they work with) in harms way?

    Not everything is black and white, folks. I think the judge in this case made a reasonable decision based on the circumstances, and I'm glad that he was given the leeway to do so rather than to have his hands bound by some unyielding regulation that could possibly result in a dead defendant.
    OD* and msgt/ret like this.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
