“Ned met with this man,” Hayes shows a picture. “He is an ambassador’s aid with the DPRC. After that he went behind a bus and we lost him.”
“Good. That’s all. Come on home.” John ends it.
“Coming home.” Hayes is happy for an easy run.
DPRC News report …
“Whistleblower Ned Wons reveals how the Empire is monitoring all phone calls, Internet transmissions, blogs and maybe even your private thoughts. More on the news at 10:00.”
“Can he really say anything important?” I ask John.
“No,” John smiles. “We filled him with so much bull shit over the last six months while he was rewriting the manual he’s going to spread a lot of disinformation.”
“I do not believe his reports.” A skeptic reads over the report summary from Ned.
“Can we use him?” asks a suit.
“He doesn’t know any Chinese. He can’t even be a translator.”
“The moon is not even asking for his return.”
“Put him to work in a mushroom plant. Tell him we are hiding him. Tell him the Empire has a contract out on him and he needs to hide for a while. If he is as big a fool as I expect he will probably believe it.”
