File removed at the personal request of Ms. Ellen Glasser by telephone today.
16 December 2012
Hello, I was wondering what exactly former FBI Ellen Glasser said/asked that you felt necessary to comply with her request to take down your "Retired SEALs and FBI" series/links. Was it a plea/concern for safety for some on the list? I'm a long-time "anonymous" reader and have never emailed you about anything before now. But it just drew my curiosity since I have never seen you redact anything you have posted previously; that is not to say you have not done so -- just that I am not aware of it.
We periodically remove files of a personal nature upon a personal request, so long requests are made politely without threatening. Several dozen* over 16 years, I would guess. None removed in response to an official or personal threat unless I have blocked that shameful memory.
Ms. Glasser said she would appreciate removal and was not making a threat.
I said if a threat eventually came in the files would be reposted.
Big talk. If a SEAL gets my neck in a chokehold and my eye at the point of a K-Bar, I'm persuadable.
