A DEA agent has filed suit against the federal agency for leaking the tape presented here. Lee Paige was making a presentation to children at the Orlando Youth Minority Golf Association on April 9, 2004, when he shot himself. Moments before the shooting, the 14-year agency veteran was displaying his firearm and telling students he was the only one in the room professional enough to handle a gun. He stated later that he "had cleared the chamber of the Glock 40 but forgot to release the magazine". A real pro! Earth to agent: 1. release magazine. 2. clear chamber. 3. do not point weapon at your foot.
Paige, a former player for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, said he can't work undercover anymore because of the tape. Which causes ΛΕΟΝΙΔΑΣ, who on occasion has worked under cover, to raise a couple of questions: What is a person as recognizable as a professional football player doing working "under cover"? What is an "under cover" agent doing giving a lecture to a group of ordinary citizens? Or for that matter, why is an "under cover" CIA "operative" parking her car in the employee's lot at Langley , VA?
