    Uh, Mr. Flagg is one to talk; he has no neck.

    Um … didn’t Havoc make any kind of report (official or otherwise) to anyone concerning Jeff’s escapades in Afghanistan? That Jeff got this far is an indication Overkill Systems don’t check their applicants very closely. Of course Jeff is way too dumb to realize that any spook org willing to have him is one he really shouldn’t be with.

    Oh yeah? Or maybe any spook organization that’s willing to have him deserves him.

    Actually, this surely looks like the Red Rascal is about to get hired for the kind of job you really don’t want to take.

    The ‘assets’ involved tend to become ‘disposable’…Let’s see if he gets tagged as a shield or ends up as an arranged ‘incident’…

    Liquid asset? Toxic asset? Depreciating asset?

    I wonder if Mr. Flagg is one of Col. Flagg’s kids? They seem to share a bond.

    “Human assets”? In Jeff’s case it should be spelled “assettes,” as in the diminutive form of…

    In my hometown in Georgia, we had a pharmacist by the name of Strange. His sign read”Strange Drugs”.

    Jeff dosen’t have to take this. Flagg is sounding more and more like Larry Summers. The Rascal ought to channel his inner “Cornel West” and take his business to the other guys.
