This cut-in was originally planted as an early hint that
Fortuna might have a dark side.

Subject: Re-Allocation of
unfortunate demise of agent Michael Griffin has created an opportunity in
office which should be
acted upon immediately. I initially agreed to the Fortuna investigation led
by agent Griffin because of his long and distinguished
record, but without his leadership, I find no reason to pursue it further. A
six month effort by one of our most experienced agents with no results has
confirmed my initial opinion that Fortuna is a dry hole. Furthermore, dead
or alive, his position that the investigation should be pursued online, with
agents assuming fantasy roles, is simply untenable. Can you imagine the fun
certain members of Congress would have with this?
light of the new administrations emphasis on the re-valuation of
intellectual property as set forth in Notice 08-3, I am therefore ordering
the reassignment of all remaining members of the Fortuna team in
to the newly-created IP
team, under the supervision of agent Marian Swanson. The existing case files
should be destroyed pursuant to standard procedures.
