Isn't that the one you're talking about? The NSC's kill list, that's sometimes attributed to the NDAA?
I thought everyone knew how that worked.
Seriously, there's a long dance involved in getting on and off of it. It involves the President, the Justice Department, the AG, the NSC, the JCS and
the Agency, there are meetings, lunches, memoes, power points, and a big meeting where you get nominated to it. You don't do that on the cheap. Then
you go on either the Agency's list, or the JCS's list, or both. I don't know anyone on the Agency side, so I don't know if the lists are
identical. They could be. But on the JCS list there's maybe 150 people, sometimes more, sometimes less.
Once you go on the list, then the department receiving the list has to decide how to prioritize resources to the guys. If you're a fairly easy
target, it might be worth getting you even if you're down the priority list - the ones on the top generally take a lot of time. And personnel, and
equipment. To get a couple of first tier A teams on site from Dr Carter's side of things, and to provide field support B teams and lower level
support personnel costs millions per day. You don't do that for some JSTOR pirate shmuck. Not to mention the AG frowns on doing Americans at all,
much less in country. Last I heard there were maybe 6 out of 150 that had been US citizens although they were ex-pats.
Would you also please explain what you mean by saying; "Swartz just didn't want to be someone's ... ahem ... entertainment."
Prison. "you got a purty mouth". Bubba the molester. Banjo music.
