Interesting how his "lies" led to valuable intel.

But the question becomes, how much good intel, how much red herring and what was lost or gained in the process?

How do we know that we gained "valuable" intel? We keep keep killing No2s to the point that Jonathan Frakes won't come out of his house.

But we still don't have the big prize, or haven't even come to the point of saying we have broken the structure of the organization.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
