      Sounds like a well loved highly intelligent agent.

      He must have snapped and had a flake out. A human can only take so much before “the switch flips.”

      I sure hope they find him safe and talk him down gently from the window ledge. He could find help in rehab…and continue on in life. I pray for him to be well again.

      I’ve been thinking about this agent for some hours — I knew someone like him before. Dedicated, intelligent, extremely detail oriented, and very
      despondent. You don’t make FBI w/o having the gas in the tank to get the task at hand completed.
      Tom, Dick, and Larry off the street — nice guys
      and try hard… but the word TRY gets you cut.
      Try is a weak word.
      FBI only wants to hear DO, DID, DONE. The elite
      make the cut. Stephens Ivans is an elite. (FBI demands it)
      IMO From the moment he walked out his door –
      He was in operation mode and the mental debate
      Should I/or Shouldn’t I, that’s resolved.
      Or he wouldn’t have walked out that door. objective achieved? It was more probably than not — DONE —-

      It concerns me that an FBI Agent had a flake out.
      That is an agent that has been through a hurricane of vetting to get in. To make it through, your balls or lady parts are crafted
      of concrete. Solid, level-headed, unflappable.
      I guess it shows me — we are all human, even the elite super human.

      (I’ll always hold out for a miracle though, against my inner good sense — cuz I’m a sentimental old fool, I guess) God Bless that DEVASTATED family! I pray they find his body soon.

      Carp, there is never in a single instance ever in history someone simply “flips” and some magical switch goes from off to on.

      In every instance such an individual has been hiding their true feelings (anger, saddness, shame, whatever) for many years if not their entire lives. Then a traumatic incident occurs and they can no longer hold back and all those years of surpressed feelings come flooding out.

      Never, EVER something new…just something hidden. hard to believe, but always the fact.

      Moi – you sure laid that one down!

      Thanks… It made me think from another view point.

      This souds like somemne trying to cover up something. I did some routine surfing and found this: http://www.davidicke.com/forum/showthread.php?t=210277

      All I can say is “Run Stephen, run”. And try to find someone to listen and document what you know. Then, run some more until the truth can surface…if there is any to surface but, we all know the lengths our govenment will go to trying to cover up something they don’t want out. Like Obozo’s birth certificate, SS#, College documents…shall I continue?
