"When a pattern of what appears to be official 'discretion' to overlook is too widespread, suspicion is justified. I think the term might be 'probable cause' that something irregular is occurring."

"You may recall, a short while ago when something occurred that was clearly outside of reasonable expectation, there was an effort to dismiss it as a procedural matter that should be left to those who are paid to take care of that kind of problem.

"When it happened again, and then a third time, it was pushed up the analytical hierarchy. Automatic responses could no longer handle the conflicting incoming data. Higher level attention was required.

"In retrospect, it may have been wise to not press for an explanation too soon. We have probably learned an important lesson about investigatory finesse."
