As this crazy love-pentagon of four-star players unfolded, one clear question has hovered over all the white noise of bad-high-school-gone-Washington DC:
How did the star-crossed lovers plan to avoid the high-tech geeks at the CIA and the FBI?
Answer: They acted like terrorists and teenagers.
"They set up joint, anonymous email accounts, including a Gmail account.
They would compose messages, but not send them. The messages would stay in the Drafts folder for the other person to read and write a response. There was no incoming or outgoing mail to track.
This is a popular trick with terrorists and its growing with teenagers."
Just like some teens and all terrorists.
