You have to have a -- was half that people that you take advantage of the good natured -- that's somebody that you sell the story to and the government fell into the trap.
Here's a thing now here's an there that really what to meet -- smells bad that the government was it innocently duped or was this payback for political favor and if so is that illegal.
