  7. A flurry of press today (Friday) with CNN, Laredo Morning Times and
  8. Reuters over MX narco
  9. violence that stretches from Juarez to NL. The tactical team did a very
  10. good job of cutting through the fog to determine whether or not a VBIED
  11. detonated in Juarez. Job well done to Alex and The Stick.
  12.  
  13. My book is done and I'm plodding through edit changes from the
  14. publisher. I'm hopeful to be done very shortly and I thank you for your
  15. patience.
  16.  
  17. Worked with Darryl on new office security plans; met with the new
  18. security committee to discuss George's direction on better OPSEC.
  19. Shared space in DC is an issue, but one that we have to deal with.
  20.  
  21. We need ALL execs to get PGP.
  22.  
  23. On the intel front, Russian spies, the Comrade J death and fall-out
  24. drove a fair amount of work this week.
  25.  
  26. Met with Grant, Kyle, Stick and Jenna to discuss new business ideas or
  27. portals for security and terrorism. Fruitful discussion, I believe.
  28.  
  29. Spoke to my high school at Walmart this week. Interesting factoid, WM
  30. out-sourced $20 BILLION to vendors (not suppliers) last year. Yes,
  31. billion, not millions. His job is to figure out a way to reduce that
  32. figure. Deloitte got the lions share of the $20 BILLION.
  33.  
  34. Korena and I met w/Mike Rosen, a friend of mine and Congressman McCaul's
  35. gatekeeper about getting the Republicans (or at least McCaul) to buy a
  36. portal.
  37.  
  38. TrapWire for the Great State of Texas is a go. Cash should begin to
  39. flow to Abraxas within 10 days. As many of you old-timers know, we
  40. arranged to get a cut. I think the first dump is $250,000 to Abraxas,
  41. with an annual renewal of $150,000 per year for the TrapWire license.
  42. The point man for the project worked directly for me at DPS. Abraxas
  43. has done work already pro-bono as good will. TrapWire may be the most
  44. successful invention on the GWOT since 9-11. I knew these hacks when
  45. they were GS-12's at the CIA. God Bless America. Now they have EVERY
  46. major HVT in CONUS, the UK, Canada, Vegas, Los Angeles, NYC as clients.
