Cloak and Dagger
Host Lenny Bloom
interviews Captain Eric H. May

29 November 2005


Abstract: Captain May talks about three "Info War" martyrs: Col Ted Westhusing, Army Ranger Pat Tillman, and human rights activist Rachel Corrie. In all likelihood West Point ethics professor Col Ted Westhusing was assassinated (or "fragged from top-down") for his stand against high level corruption in Iraq. The Bush Administration treatment of the death of former professional football player Pat Tillman in Afghanistan also shows all the signs of a major cover-up. Lastly, the father of Rachie Corrie told Captain May that his daughter was deliberately killed by Israelis.

Lenny Bloom: Welcome back to Cloak & Dagger. I am your host Lenny Bloom, along with my co-host, the Great American Judge-Buster, Sherman H Skolnick. Sherman is on assignment tonight. Stepping in for him is Capt May with a special memorial briefing. It is 11:00 AM, Captain, on the 29th of November, special day 11-29, is 1111. [Editor's Note: The host is invoking some numerological esoterica that has been discussed on other shows, but is not pursued on this show. Captain May believes it could be part of "gang code" used by Yalie Skull & Bonesmen, Zionist-Mossad cabalists, and other power elites as their arrogant "signature" when they commit ultra high level crimes. In this case, take the 11 in the month field, and then add 2+9 in the day field to get 11, then combine all of them to get 1111. Practictioners of this Chaldean-derived numerological system apparently like to commit crimes on dates that can be construed as holding only odd numbers and/or multiples of "11", such as the 9-11 NY "inside job," the 3-11 Madrid bombing, the 7-7-7 London subway bombing (7-7-[take 2005 in the year field, ignore zeroes, add 2+5 to get 7]), the 11-22 JFK assassination, etc.]. Welcome back to Cloak & Dagger. [2:49]

Capt May:
Boy, adding up to it is 1111 and then 11 1:00. It is a black banner day for Ghost Troop. We have brought in a new member. I discussed the death of Col Ted Westhusing, former West Point instructor, who is covered in the L.A. Times, Nov 27th. We will talk about it in a minute. I discussed that with my Ghost Troop officers, both being former military officers from Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. We elected him to join the Holy Horde. We think he is a bona fide info war martyr. There is honor in that. There is great sorrow in it too. Ultimately I suppose now is an appropriate time to not only bury, but also to praise Col Westhusing. Perhaps I should familiarize the listeners with the case.

LB: Yes, please do.

Capt May: Col Westhusing was one of the best and the brightest. I think that I bumped into him a time or two. We were the same age and graduated a year apart, although he was a West Pointer. He had spent a very successful career in airborne special operations. He was an infantry officer, a West Pointer himself, number three in his class. A very talented officer who had an intellectual predilection. He came back after a successful career in the field from West Point. He went off to study ethics and philosophy to be quite a polymath. After doing a tour at West Point, or after spending a great amount of time there teaching students, he developed a particular interest in military honor, particularly the classical perspective on military honor. And at a certain point in 2004 applied for Iraq, thinking that he should experience that so that he could better speak to the students. He did not have to go. He went to make a difference, as so many of these people did. As I almost did. I volunteered to get back into the mix and I was ineligible. My commission could not be reactivated. So a lot of us wanted to do the right thing. He got to Iraq, and was training Iraqi military police, or Iraqi police officer, but was also sitting as a supervisor for USIS. A U.S. corporation, making money off of training people in Iraq. He came to think that it was a boondogle. He became confrontational with the people heading up that corporation. The in and the out of it is that he became within a month began to write cryptic emails to his family about how bad things were. His wife noticed that when he talked to her on the phone there was a tone of fear in his voice. He wrote a cryptic email to the effect about how he didn't think he would get through a certain night. Sure enough, he went through a meeting with the USIS people at USIS headquarters by the Baghdad International Airport, and died of a single gun shot wound to the head. Evidently one of the USIS employees had been handling the gun, but explained that he did that because he wanted to remove the gun from the Colonel. What is ironic is that we are reading this November 27, 2005. It occurred in June 2005, the military had just come in with an official finding that it was suicide. But nothing about Col Westhusing's background suggested suicide. He was noted as a devout Catholic, a family man. Everything --Lenny, not to beat around the bush about this, you and I know each other well. The reason I am particularly interested in talking to you about Col Westhusing is because I think that what he did is what the military would call a mission of conscience. He decided that he had seen abuses in Iraq, and he mentions a lot of categories of them. He felt sullied by it, and I suppose particularly by the profiteering. There is no other word for it. The war profiteering that was going on. These Bush boys and friends of Bush boys. It looks like he was lured to a meeting and assassinated. Right now we see this kind of goose step going on between the media and the military trying to find reasons to slander and traduce this man's good name. There are only three perspectives to take of this, Lenny. One, he was on to something that was so bad that he killed himself rather than confront it because he felt so bad about it. Two, he was coerced into a suicide. Or three, he was suicided. Three on that sounds so strongly the case that the other two are really tangents to me at this point. But the official story is suicide. I think he simply joined the martyr's list. He joined the list of people who have been suicided because they tried to stand up to the right thing. Incidentally, the Army sent out a psychiatrist or counselor, something in this respect, LtCol Lisa Bredenbock. I am trying to get some info on her for right now. She is not from West Point. She is one of the people the Army sent out to look at this. And basically what she said is that he could not learn to compromise his principles. He could not shift from a mindset of doing duty irrespective of cost. I think this is simply official boiler plate for an official suicide. At this point the only thing that I am wondering is did the L.A. Times let this story out because they want to wake people up, to what kind of things these people will do, or did they send this around because they want to shake people up and keep people from doing what the Colonel did. The Colonel did the right thing. He is a hero. [9:44]

LB: The law of averages today when you see somebody commit suicide is that they have been suicided.

Capt May: Yes, particularly when you see on the official level. And you know, I guess you know the problem, if you want to call it the problem, the thing that makes me able to pick this up so clearly is that like Col Westhusing, [Capt May speaks some sample Russian], I was a military intelligence-trained Russian linguist and I spent a lot of time with the Soviet media. And people died of suicide in the Soviet Union too. The same kinds of people with the same kinds of background and the same kinds of situation. And nobody in the Army was dumb enough to think that Russian suicide stuff was anything but official assassination. But suddenly, because it is being done to us. But the people who are paid to be officially dumb, the spokespeople and the media whores, are writing it up as it if it is the complete opposite of what it is. As if it is suicide, when anybody can see that this isn't a suicide. The man is a foundational Christian. A strong Catholic. He was in the fight of his life. He was in a political-administrative fight, with corrupt officers and profiteers. He believed utterly in what he was doing. He was telling his wife he would be able to tell her more about it and not send cryptic emails when he got home within a month of the time he got killed. You know Lenny, they used to, in the KGB, I don't know why it is that all of this seems funnier when you talk about how it was done in the Soviet Union, but it does. In the Soviet Union they would go pop someone in the head and then put as the official cause of death "cerebral hemorhage." It was just their little cute way of saying "Yes, we did one."

LB: Right.

Capt May: What are you going to do? The answer was usually "I will fall into line and not have a cerebral hemorhage myself." And that is what this is. I want to mention that there are a couple of other --what we are getting is misinformation. About the soldier. About the man, the warrior, Col Westhusing.

LB: Yes.

Capt May: But that is nothing strange. I will give you a couple of other examples of misinformation victims. Pat Tilman, remember the U.S. pro-football player who left the Arizona Cardinals? One of our U.S. football teams.

LB: Yep.

Capt May: He joined the military. Well, he got friendly fire-killed, man. I mean, that happens. But what happened is that the military went on a concerted disinformation campaign. For God's sake, the White Wash House is calling Tillman's parents to try to get them to let the President do some kind of moving tribute to him. All based upon utter lies. The truth was it was a tragic friendly fire incident --at least we suppose --that seems to be the latest version. But it was not heroic combat against the Taliban. It was getting yourself shot by your own side. [America First Books Editor's note: Tillman's mother has since claimed in interviews that there is strong evidence that her son's death was a deliberate assassination at point blank range with something like two M16 rounds in the forehead. While in country, her high-profile son had communicated with various people back in America his views about why the war in Afghanistan was unnecessary. Also, some claim that two suspicious soldiers joined his unit within a few weeks before the killing, and left it immediately afterwards].

LB: Yes.

Capt May: I mean, they framed it. Or the one that brought me into the info war, the same way that Col Westhusing took on a mission of conscience because he saw how bad and dishonorable the abuse was in Iraq, particularly involving war profiteering. And moral abuses too, by the way, he mentions specifically. Well, the thing that did that for me was realizing what Private Jessica Lynch was all about. Knowing that there was a battle going down for Baghdad that the U.S. public had a strong Constitutional interest in understanding, and I knew that because I was a public affairs officer. I know what the public's right is. I know what the rules governing the public's right to know is. It is a Department of Defense public affairs principles of information [policy]. The public was supposed to find out about [the Battle of] Baghdad, but they did another misinformation thing. They took Jessica Lynch and they put her up on the screen. And by the way, that was an abuse of Jessica Lynch. If we had taken a prisoner of war from the enemy, and filmed them, and used them for a propaganda shot, it would have been against different international conventions that we signed. It is exactly what we were mad at the Iraqis for doing during the war. They were showing U.S. prisoners. But we did it with our own people, with Jessica Lynch. Why? So that they could cover up the real story which was that hundreds of U.S. soldiers were dying between the airport and the statue that was pulled down, which was another bit of misinformation. So misinformation and GI deaths seem to just go hand in hand. You know, we come back to that thing we were talking about last night. Kindly, someone says that my involvement in Ghost Troop and Ghost Troop's work proves that there is such a thing as military intelligence, that is was not an oxymoron. Well, I think Col Westhusing proved that there was such as thing as what he was teaching, which is military ethics. You know, he kept the oath. He took on a mission of conscience, and look what he got. But the point is that he did do it. The deep truth here is that Army officer from within the system even, you know it is much easier for me outside the system at that point, but even officers from within the system are willing to stand up to systemic abuse. Let us hope that he is the first of many. I want to mention that there are other people who have been info war martyrs. Not just misinformation people. [15:49]

LB: Yes. Tell us about it.

Capt May: Well, you can pick a few of them, Lenny. You know I said that I got into the info war when the Battle of Baghdad was covered up. That was April 5th, 2003. I rode out to Ft Stewart Georgia, for God's sake, to get the story straight. I was a former general staff officer. I was able to talk my way on to an Army post and get in touch with conscientious officers who would talk to me. And before I had been at Ft Stewart for half a day, one of the Chaplains, Col Neil Dennington, was telling me that Special Forces detachments would be shutting up anybody who let too much information out, and I had best keep my mouth shut about the covered up Battle of Baghdad. I mean all of this was said in fine glowing terms and very nicely, but it was insinuated and insinuated clearly. The man had a Constitution in his left chest pocket --no--his right-- so he could pull it out and assure everybody, and assure me, that the Constitution was not being overthrown. He had it right in his pocket and the Army was just keeping it safe for him. They would bring it out when everything was finished. This was the kind of thing that was going on immediately. By the time July came along, I had done just what Col Westhusing had done. Between May 14th, 2003 and July 1, 2003, that being six weeks, by the time I knew there was a cover up of the Battle of Baghdad, and that dependents, military dependents were being thugged and drugged to keep them shut up at Ft. Stewart, Georgia; from the time I knew that the dead were being covered up, desecrated, and their dependents were being brutalized and shut up, I had six weeks where I probably did everything that Col Westhusing would be shown to have done. I stopped eating. I started worrying. I became querolous. I picked fights. My training in martial arts was down. I am a black belt teacher. Everything about me said that I was in distress. And indeed I was in distress. That is the normal reaction of man who realizes that his country is lying unconstitutionally to his people, and who feels that he has to do something about it but is not quite ready. That is exactly what Col Westhusing did. And then when I came out to get active in it again, it was two days after Ambassador Joe Wilson's OpEd ran in the New York Times, that being July 6th, 2003. Two days later my editor in the Houston Chronicle ran my last essay in the Houston Chronicle of July 8, 2003. Lenny, that is when things started getting hot in July of 2003, and people are still talking about it to this day. What they are talking about is Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson and the CIA leak and all that. That is where you can catch it mainstream. What was happening underneath the surface was that everybody was getting scared for their life. My editors were taking vacations. People were dodging my pieces. Military and media contacts were telling me that I had better duck. And finally, I ducked into the undergound. That was six hours before Dr. David Kelly, a Blair war critic in England, mysteriously committed suicide. [19:23]

LB: It is standard practice, you know, when somebody's paradigm of the world gets shattered that they go into a sort of depression. It doesn't mean they are going to commit suicide.

Capt May: Of course. I mean, of course! If you could take --you know we all have emotions and emotional reactions. And finding out that your country is cheating is like finding out that the woman or the man you are married to is cheating. It is infidelity. It strikes you deeply. But what I did was I came out fighting. I came out swinging in July of 2003. And Lenny, let me tell you who I was in touch with. Just like Col Westhusing, you go to people and you make confrontations. None of the people who are confronted want to be confronted because most of them are implicated by commission or omission. [20:19]

LB: Exactly.

Capt May: In his case he went to various military commanders and he went directly to the company that he was supposed to be supervising, USIS. In my case, the July 8th Houston Chronicle major OpEd attacking Bush in his home town. July 7th Clear Channel Communications, I talked my way on to KPRC radio 950 AM in Houston and got them to let me talk about the Battle of Baghdad from a cover-up perspective for ten minutes because they did not know that they were not supposed to talk about it yet. Then their DJ got sent off on two weeks vacation instantly. July 10th, McCain's press secretary Rebecca Hanks, confrontational conversation follow up email. July 11th, Tom Daschle. I mean New York Times Thom Shanker, man you pick them. ABC's Robert Buttermilk national news desk editor, it just goes on and on. I crashed every barrier I could, because it finally looked in July as if the media was going to tell the truth about what had happened in Baghdad, was going to tell that they had been doing coverups, and was going to pull the plug on this bag of crap they call the Iraq war. And by the way, everybody now is calling it a bag of crap. Even the military is saying "For God's sake, the biggest problem there is us." It goes back to an old joke I made up Lenny. A black [humor] joke.

LB: Yes.

Capt May: How do you get out of quick sand? Quick!

LB: (laugher).

Capt May: And now we are to the point that finally people with four stars and, you know, cabinet positions are realizing that any infantry soldier in the mud could have realized that. And they did! It was in July of 2003 that you had the NCOs, the sergeants from Baghdad saying that if Rumsfeld were here, we would ask for his resignation. And the Bush people came out against the reporter who did that story, the ABC reporter who released it. They tried to out him as a gay through the Drudge Report. There was an offense against the Bush people. An attack. A media attack of constitutional people during July 2003. And that was enough to get me out of my Fox hole to take this on. The same way something happened that made Col Westhusing go from a person who was losing weight, worried and fearful, for God's sake, he knew what was going on. A man who was worried and fearful who was telling people that he would tell them more if he could, went from being a worried fearful man to saying, "Death before Dishonor." He actually said that. They say that he was found with a little note that said that I am not going to be dishonored by this anymore, better death than dishonor. It was a four page letter. [23:29]

LB: Yes well Captain May, it must, what is really happening in the big picture here is that corporate interests have taken over control of the state apparatus in the United States and now the Pentagon is taking orders not from the President so much as from Halliburton executives, who now control the White House. And so the Army and the Pentagon and the Armed Services of America are being used for the corporations and this is what these people must be perceiving down at the ground level. A number of them have seen that it is all about oil. It is all about oil. It has got nothing to do about democracy and all these high fallutin' ideas.

Capt May: Right. I think that--

LB: That must be hard for military people to accept that, "Hey, we are wearing a uniform that says `The United States' on it, but really we should take off this uniform and put on `Halliburton Security Operatives,' because that is what the whole Pentagon has been turned into." A security corporation and a fighting operation for Halliburton. [25:00]

Capt May: Well it is not like the best and brightest did not see it a long time ago. You know, by the way, I am a Republican. Before anyone thinks that I am a bolshevik member of the anarchist party or some some such thing. I mean I was a Republican. Now being a Republican means no more Bush monarchy. How's that? I am an anti-monarchial republican. Anyway, Ike Eisenhower was a Republican. A four star general and a West Point man. He coached the West Point football team, by the way. He was also a ghost writer, like I was. A bright man. Ike Eisenhower left the presidency in 1961 and in his valedictory told us to beware of the growing influence of the military-industrial complex. What has happened is simply what architects of the American strategic state saw as a danger from the very start. Remember Eisenhower goes back to pre-World War II, pre-World War I, and he saw the emergence of this whole thing cresting with World War II, and then in the 40's you know this better than I do that there was a conscious effort to ramp the nation into a military-industrial hyperpower to counter balance the Soviet Union. [26:27]

LB: Yes.

Capt May: Well, now everything that was forecast about the growing influence of the military-industrial complex seems to have culminated, seems to have erupted, after the 9-11 event, in the Middle East. What you have now is war profiteering of the same sort that you had, for heaven's sake, when the Republicans occupied the South. All the same motives --you know people don't need to understand Iraqi history-- people need to understand American history. The Civil War was the same thing. You had your industrialists, your war profiteers pushing the war. And then you had your people who wanted to have what? Occupation and Reconstruction. I mean, does that sound familiar? [27:22]

LB: Exactly.

Capt May: The more things change, the more they stay the same. Or as my late professor Dr. Peter Gunther told me, [feigning a German accent and deepening voice] "It is all cyclical, you know." He was German. So they have come full circle. And now the precepts of the great Presidents who made them are being forgotten. You never hear anyone quoting Eisenhower except Andy Rooney. Andy Rooney quoting Eisenhower on 60 Minutes, I think, a few weeks ago.

LB: And of course Oliver Stone--

Capt May: George Washington's advice to avoid foreign entanglements. Man, there must be a ban on quoting George Washington's valedictory after he left the presidency, which was to avoid foreign entanglements. You say this war is oil, and you are right. This war is oil, this war is big business, redistributing wealth in America under the pretext of war, and this war is Israeli political interests which require solutions to the Middle Eastern problem and require more resources than they have personally, meaning us. It is a three-fold thing. And the colonel jumped right into the teeth of that. And there was no way on earth he could have, at the point he was at, understood the full dimension of it because you have to leave the team to figure it out. And he was still on the team. But he saw enough of it to know that it was rotten. Like Lenny you know how much if you listen to the other interviews you and I have done on Cloak and Dagger, I have done a wide array with Ghost Troop through you in the Info War, but it all started with one abuse that was so great that I could not conscience it, and that was Jessica Lynch, the Battle of Baghdad, and then the thugging and drugging they did at Ft Stewart. They had our wounded out in tents not able to get into hospitals and the media sat there and reported it without ever explaining that the reason that it had happened is there were so many wounded from the Battle of Baghdad. And this is speculating, probably they wanted to keep them in one place so that the story wouldn't get out, so they didn't give a damn if the soldiers sit out there and rotted in the sun. You dig? This is the way it has all gone down, man. [29:52]

LB: Yes.

Capt May: That is the off the reservation assessment of how it is going down now. And Col Westhusing found that out. And he found it out honorably. He confronted it. But right now to see this threadbare piece of crap that they are calling an official investigation slander this man who gave his life, for something --a teacher, a man who is teaching young warriors. Lenny, I have got friends who graduate from West Point next year. Who graduated this year. I know the kids he is teaching. People in my martial arts school go to West Point. Sons of professors of mine go to West Point. And this man was trying to give his life or to risk his life to prove how an ethical officer acted in unusual threats, and there is no threat like war. And what has happened is that the official explanation has made him look like a weakling who could not handle duty. And that is just an outrage. Every officer should be outraged. You know I had a big advantage in the info war Lenny, and I want to give a memorial service. My mentor in the Info War from the very start was a gentleman named Professor Peter W. Gunther. But he had been Hauptman Gunther, or Captain Gunther of the Wehrmacht. A panzer officer who spent five years on the Eastern Front. And he was the first one to exhort me to confront what he already knew as the systemic war plan built on criminal intent. And inevitably entailing criminality at every point. He urged me to push forward and not to let that happen because he had seen better than any officer alive in the military today what can happen when you allow criminal conduct and criminal purpose to go unquestioned and unchecked. You know the best and brightest are the ones who are leaving the reservation right now and starting to talk out, Lenny. And that is why this best and brightest man [Col Westhusing] needed to have representation and [still] needs to have representation. They are trying to end him in shame. Because for a man to commit suicide when there is such an important mission in front of him would be a shame. It would be a shame to any military man. And I know that this military man does not do that. I know exactly where he was. He was full steam ahead. He said "To hell with it, death before dishonor," and he went in to confront these rascals, and these rascals popped him. That is how it went down, Lenny. [33:03]

LB: Well of course--

Capt May: I will tell you another Info War martyr while we are right there. The one right before the war, Rachel Corrie, March 16, 2003. U.S. girl standing up in front of bulldozers in Palestine trying to get the Israelis to stop bulldozing the Palestinian homes. That operation had been going on for a while. But three days before the war started, they ran Rachel Corrie down with a bulldozer. Sharon the bulldozer. It was not until after I met her Dad, SSgt Craig Corrie, Vietnam veteran with the First Cavalry Division, my home unit, I had been a buck sergeant with that unit back in the 70's, it was not until I met her Dad at a tribute, a memorial service for Rachel that I put it together from what he said that that was a coverup. It was an assassination all the way. They had replaced drivers on the bulldozer that morning. She was not standing in front of the target. She was the target. She just didn't know it. That is the kind of little story that just runs through the info war. And us talking about it, man, we are out of the loop. The people who are in the loop, are the people who are the want to be shakers and movers, who have to climb through this Byzantine crap and along the way think that they are smart because they learned to talk without saying anything. And they learned to pretend to act when they are really just going along. They are acting all right. Acting as in drama, but not as officers. It is a compromise all the way through, and the compromisers are the ones who sit back and say "Yes, he got it, because he did not know how to respect the system and compromise." So they are going down the same route that I was very fortunate from the very first day to have a German officer from the last World War say "That is the wrong route, you cannot go down that." And apropos of Col Westhusing's Catholicism, Lenny, you know before our July 28, 2005 interview, when things were getting pretty rough in Houston, you know that I had gone to a Catholic priest before I reentered the info war. And the reason was to get baptised. It was my wife's church. And when I came back into the info war, you know that I had been out from January to June 2005, I fully expected not to make it a month. You know that when we did the interview, which is on your page, I did not know if I would make it through the night. That is exactly when I reasoned from this article --and I encourage everyone to look it up, it is the L.A. Times November 27th about Col Ted Westhusing. When I read this, and I read the kind of things that this man is sending back, the kinds of statements he is making, I realize that these are the statements of a man who is doing his duty who realizes the implication --possible assassination-- call it a fragging for God's sake, get assassination out of it, just call it a fragging --everybody knows it happened in Vietnam, well this one happened from up top, not from the bottom. It was not the privates who did it. It was the contractors who did it. It wasn't the privates, it was the private contractors. Because he was pushing too hard. You know, Lenny, we could go on and on. [36:45]

LB: We could go on and on, but I think that you were-- [We are] pretty short on time here. We are going to wrap it up, but Captain May, for our listeners who are enjoy your briefing, and there are many, please give us some information about where people can contact you and hear more about your stuff.

Capt May: Well, the best thing to do at this point is simply go to your search engine and search the phrase "Ghost Troop," and throw my name if you want to. I go by "Captain May." That is my rank, and that is my name. I have reactivated on a mission of conscience. I was advised that I should do that by the Department of the Army Public Affairs in September 2003, because when I talked to them they said what you are saying sounds like a mission of conscience, if that is what you are on. I realized that is what I am on. So if you look up Ghost Troop Captain May you will see what has come out of my particular mission of conscience which has led me to form a cyber militia group comprised of professional officers like me who have seen so many of the abuses that we can't take it any more. We are on a mission of conscience. Just like Colonel Westhusing. Well Lenny, I asked that everyone listening to me, do follow the story of Col Westhusing. It is conspicuous enough that we can hope that there will be further examination, although Lord knows three quarters of the British people think that David Kelly was assassinated. The official explanation has not changed from the official suicide story. So we don't know now, but there may come a time when things covered up now shall be revealed. And I guess that is the only hope of a Resurrection we can talk about here and now which is the Resurrection of the truth. And that has been laying in the tomb since 911, hasn't it my friend?

LB: It sure has. And it is a real pleasure and honor to have you here. And we look forward to having you back real soon to give us another update on what is going on behind the scenes in the global theater. And the state secrets that the shadow government, the ruling elite hope you don't learn. So thanks a lot Captain May, and we look forward to having you back again real soon.

Capt May: Lenny, I always close with some kind of salute to the different parts of the military. This time I think we should finish with the phrase of the Chaplain's Corps, which I think is most fitting of Col Westhusing, which is Pro Deo Et Patria. That means in Latin, as a complement to the Colonel who liked the Classical languages, it means "For God and Country." And I think we have here a patriot to show that there is such a thing as military ethics and show that there is such a thing as military intelligence. And now we are just waiting for media integrity. But the first two came easier than the third, I think. Lenny, it is a great pleasure. Even in the darkest of circumstances. We will remember the memory of our fallen comrades. This Ghost Troop Captain May signing out.

LB: Read it yourself instead of asking the government why, because that will cause the propaganda to die. Good night Captain May.

Capt May: Good night, Lenny.
