Investigators from the U.S. Army’s Criminal Investigation Division (CID) on Tuesday arrested Secretary of Treasury Janet Yellen at a Maryland hotel, alleging that the Deep State despot had engineered a diabolical scheme that clandestinely sent hundreds of billions of American tax dollars to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, far more than the $75bn the criminal Biden Regime has admitted to giving its felonious collaborator in Ukraine.
A source at CID’s Fort Liberty, NC, field office told Real Raw News that investigators apprehended Yellen and an unnamed associate outside the Merriweather Lakehouse Hotel in Baltimore at approximately 9:30 p.m. Yellen was shown a military arrest warrant charging her with treason and defrauding the United States of America before being shuttled to a processing center for interrogation.
In what could set a precedent for JAG’s book of business, the entity tasked with enforcing justice against unrepentant Deep Staters simultaneously hanged to death five physicians convicted of coercing patients to get vaccinated and blacklisting those who refused. The synchronous executions took place at Camp Blaz [in Guam] on September 5, on five gallows erected to hasten sentencing for myriad Deep Staters found guilty of treason and crimes against humanity.
As reported previously, a military tribunal on August 27 condemned 10 practicing physicians to death based on what some commenters on this website called flimsy evidence. Real Raw News asked a JAG source whether Admiral Johnathon Stephens, who led the prosecution, thought the panel’s sentencing recommendation fit the crimes, to which he replied, “To the best of my knowledge, Adm. Stephens didn’t dispute or discuss the verdict. In this case, the compelling factor is that they [the doctors] collaboratively ran a network to deny care and pressured patients to get vaxxed—some got very ill or died. Adm. Stephens did his duty in court. He did his duty at the gallows.”
The United States Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps and the Office of Military Commissions on Thursday entered uncharted territory by simultaneously charging, convicting, and sentencing to death 10 Washington State physicians for negligent homicide, engaging in mass medical malpractice resulting in grievous injury or death, and treason against the United States of America, a Camp Blaz adjunct informed Real Raw News.
As reported this month, White Hats within the U.S. military apparatus arrested 100 doctors, alleging their adherence to draconian protocols and personal ambitions endangered patients’ lives. In a lengthy affidavit, JAG alleged that the accused berated and belittled vaccine-hesitant patients and threatened to include them on “medical blacklists” unless they complied with CDC guidelines. Ahead of the indictment, JAG investigators masquerading as patients visited vaccine-loving clinics in 12 states, where they, too, were verbally accosted and denied treatment for refusing to show vaccination paperwork or getting in-office jabs. Most of the 100 practiced in Washington State, California, Illinois, New York, and Connecticut.
On Tuesday morning, Vice Admiral Darse E. Crandall oversaw the execution of former IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig, whom JAG found guilty of stealing $40 billion that the federal government had already stolen from hardworking American taxpayers.
At approximately 10:00 a.m., armed military police escorted a forlorn Rettig from his Camp Delta holding cell to a newly erected row of gallows—10 of them—near Bargo Point, GITMO, where the admiral, a small ensemble of military brass, and an unnamed U.S. House Representative stood ready to hear the final lamentations of yet another doomed Deep State devil. The admiral thumbed through a list of scheduled executions on his tablet as MPs prodded a handcuffed Rettig up the steps leading to a rope. Rettig was greeted politely by a Navy chaplain who asked him whether he wanted Last Rites and told him that Jesus “is forgiving all the sins of people who are demonstrating genuine faith in him,” even the truly wicked.
“What has Jesus ever done for me. Leave me alone,” Rettig said.
Military Tribunal Convicts Former IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig of Treason, Defrauding the United States
Monday, August 7, 2023, GITMO.
A military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay convicted former IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig of treason. It decreed that he be hanged by the neck until dead for stealing $40 billion taxpayer dollars and using the Service’s recent cash infusion to finance a personal army of militarized criminal investigation agents willing to do his bidding.
In an opening statement, defiant and cantankerous, Rettig reiterated his innocence, claiming that either JAG or someone “jealous of my accomplishments” had set him up. As was the case with Deep Staters before him, he promised Vice Admiral Darse E. Crandall “a retribution” and even once invoked President Trump’s name, saying, “If I’m going down, I’m glad Trump is, too.” He snarled, curling his upper lip as would a dog. “Since I’m innocent, whatever proof you think you have is propaganda and fake,” he said through clenched teeth.
White Hats have encouraged their own to temporarily disable cellular phones between 2:00-3:00 p.m. on October 4 when the criminal Federal Emergency Management Agency is scheduled to conduct a nationwide test of a new Emergency Action System (EAS,) a source in General Eric M. Smith’s office told Real Raw News.
As reported in March 2022, White Hats seized FEMA’s Mount Weather stronghold in the Blue Ridge Mountains and took control of the nation’s central EAS transmitter deep within the subterranean fortress. A bloody skirmish between White Hat Delta Force/Army Rangers and regime forces resulted in the deaths of two dozen FEMA personnel. The White Hat coalition sustained several casualties but no fatalities.
In the following months, FEMA mounted three attempts to retake the mountain, but White Hats repelled each incursion, and FEMA’s casualty list expanded. The regime’s last assault was in September 2022 and put 30 federal goons in body bags, as by then nearly 2,500 U.S. Marines and Army soldiers maintained a constant vigil in and around the mountain.
Speaking about the raids, our source said candidly that if the Biden regime initially retaliated massively instead of with expeditionary forces, it probably could have recaptured the mountain, an immense arsenal, and the EAS network.
A prominent Moderna chemist, Melissa J. Moore, was arrested at her Everett, Massachusetts, home Sunday evening after trying to evade U.S. Navy JAG investigators who had been surveilling the residence and awaiting an opportunity to serve a military arrest warrant, a JAG adjunct told Real Raw News.
Our source said the investigators had staked out Moore’s summertime domicile in the outskirts of Boston following several failed attempts to isolate her at her primary residence in Cambridge and pricey timeshare in Lake Tahoe, and at Moderna’s Boston headquarters, where she pioneered the pharmaceutical giant’s mRNA clot shot.
The investigators, he added, were in a nondescript vehicle on the opposite side of the road when Moore’s Land Rover pulled into the driveway. As the windows had a dark tint, they could not immediately see the driver or determine whether the SUV held any passengers, so they waited until the door opened before approaching. Moore, though, must have spotted the investigative duo, for she flung open the door, grabbed her purse, and began hobbling across the horseshoe driveway, snagging a heel in the grass while shouting for help. She tumbled to the ground clutching her handbag, withdrawing what investigators thought might be a firearm. But it was a syringe.
“She almost got shot,” our source said. “They realized at the last second it wasn’t a gun and kicked the syringe out of her hand. She was trying to jab herself.”
United States Marines on Saturday arrested Deputy Administrator of FEMA Erik Hooks on charges of treason, alleging in a 34-page indictment that Hooks and his boss, Deanne Criswell, ordered agents in Maui to deny fire victims food and water, to inhibit civilian relief efforts, to stop “by any means necessary” displaced persons from exiting fire-ravaged Lahaina, and to dispose of bodies as “discriminately as possible,” a source in General Eric M. Smith’s office told Real Raw News.
The arrest occurred Saturday night at Hooks’ home in Arlington, Virginia, not far from FEMA’s D.C. headquarters. The Marines cuffed Hooks while he was sleeping, showed him a military arrest warrant listing the charges against him, and carted him off to a holding center for processing.
A central piece of evidence, our source said, is a typewritten memo bearing Hooks and Criswell’s signatures. In it, the text encourages FEMA supervisors in Maui to either incinerate or discreetly bury the dead. The memo’s sinister language—“entomb them deep”—is emblematic of FEMA’s wanton disregard for human life.
Army Criminal Investigation Division (CID) investigators on Wednesday arrested a California National Guard garrison commander on “suspicion of treason” in response to allegations that he mandated masking up and demoted soldiers who fell short of his “vaccine standard,” a source in General Eric M. Smith’s office told Real Raw News. The suspect, Colonel Bryan Keels, Commander of Camp Roberts, California, also stands accused of accepting “bonus pay” for coercing perfectly healthy soldiers to get excessive vaccinations.
Investigators stopped Keels Wednesday evening outside a bar in San Miguel, approximately five miles from the post. Our source said CID had monitored Keels’ routine for several days before approaching him with a military arrest warrant.
“He went to the same bar every day after work, maskless, of course,” our source said.
When shown the warrant, the maskless mask tyrant said he, a colonel, outranked the two warrant officers and commanded them to stand down and name their commanding officer.
In April Real Raw News reported on the arrest of Shalanda Young, a Biden colleague who oversaw the Office of Budget & Management and clandestinely wired $17 billion to PrivatBank, a prominent Ukrainian bank known for laundering copious amounts of criminal cash. Charged with treason and defrauding the United States of America, Young was scheduled to stand trial in May, but as sometimes happens at Guantanamo Bay, she died an unclimactic death weeks before her day in court.
On May 7, Young slipped on a puddle of water outside her cell door, fracturing her skull when she fell backward onto the concrete floor. Her head split like a busted melon. It spilled blood and cero-spinal fluid onto the floor. Her body twitched violently as if in the throes of a grand mal seizure. She soiled herself seconds before she stopped moving.
She was brought to the Guantanamo Bay Naval Hospital and pronounced dead.
Medical staff ruled that Young’s weight contributed to the severity of the fall. They determined the impact to the base of the skull irreparably damaged vital centers in the midbrain and brainstem and that “cerebral hemorrhaging and fracture of the anterior and middle cranial fossa” were primary factors in her death.
The United States Navy Judge Admiral General’s Corps will jointly try the 165 Fort Drum soldiers at Camp Blaz next month for accepting bribes in exchange for misplaced loyalties and swearing to support and defend a fraudulent president instead of the United States Constitution. The official charges include dereliction of duty, aiding and abetting the enemy, conspiracy to commit insurrection, conspiracy to commit fratricide, and treason.
If collectively found guilty of treason, they will indeed be hanged.
JAG chose the contemporaneous route because the sudden arrival of 165 enemy combatants has created a logistical nightmare, and because trying 165 privates, specialists, and sergeants individually would take an eternity and consume cell space needed for “soon arriving VIPs,” a source at Camp Blaz told Real Raw News.
Blaz’s detention center has 360 habitable cells, grim, stone boxes with beds made of steel mesh, and a modernized cell block with some amenities of a minimum-security, white-collar, federal penitentiary—expeditious medical care, central air conditioning, tastier meals, a robust library, and no water boardings. In either case, prisoners stay segregated.
White Hats on Sunday arrested a U.S. Army major and a command sergeant major who had pledged allegiance to Joseph Biden and were instructing subordinates on how to wage urban warfare against law-abiding citizens, a source in General Eric M. Smith’s office told Real Raw News.
The disgraces to the uniform were Major David Dunbar and CSM Nema Mobarakzadeh, the 10th Mountain Division’s staff officer and senior non-commissioned officer, respectively, at Fort Drum.
Our source did not detail the actual arrests but said they took place off post, after dark, on July 30.
A JAG affidavit reviewed by Real Raw News states that Dunbar and Mobarakzadeh recruited 250 10th Mountain Division soldiers into a “private army” whose mission was to suppress civil insurrection if Joseph Biden wins the 2024 presidential election, and details their nefarious plan to storm Trump supporters’ homes and seize their weapons at gunpoint. According to the affidavit, Dunbar and Mobarakzadeh recruited volunteers and conducted urban warfare drills behind Garrison Commander Col. Matthew R. Myer’s back.
Four Army officers stationed in Vilseck, Germany, were arrested by Delta Force operators Tuesday morning as part of a White Hat initiative to identify and incarcerate what Gen. Eric M. Smith has called the “Machiavellian Military,” a cabal of twisted officers and senior NCOs who conscripted Biden-sympathetic soldiers into personal militias dedicated to the downfall of President Donald J. Trump and his supporters.
As reported yesterday, White Hats arrested a U.S. army major and a CSM who had convinced 250 Fort Drum soldiers to participate in mock war games aimed at violently quelling pro-Trump speech if Biden is victorious in 2024 or Trump is unlawfully imprisoned. The major and the CSM are currently in White Hat custody, as are 163 of the 250 Fort Drum soldiers, Real Raw News can now report. Interrogations are underway, a source in Gen. Smith’s office told RRN. He would not say whether information gleaned from the prisoners incriminated the Vilseck officers, whom he declined to name.
The four officers—three lieutenants and a captain—are attached to the 2nd Cavalry Regiment, an active Stryker infantry and cavalry at Rose Barracks in Vilseck.
The Black Hat deception stretches from the highest rungs of the governmental ladder to the halls of America’s high schools, where military recruiters promised potential enlistees unauthorized rewards in exchange for a criminal commitment: If Joseph R. Biden, Barack Obama, or Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin declare Donald Trump and his adherents domestic terrorists, stand ready to wage war against enemies of the United States Constitution.
As reported this week, White Hats arrested several corrupt officers and NCOs stationed at Fort Drum, New York, and at Rose Barracks in Vilseck, Germany. They also apprehended 165 enlisted personnel who participated in live-fire wargames, practicing marksmanship on wooden targets draped in MAGA attire.
A few of the 165, when told they faced lifelong imprisonment or a hanging, buckled under interrogation and described a scenario so villainous that it shocked White Hat leaders who thought they had already seen the worst the Deep State had to offer.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has banned 5G towers in the Russian Federation amid concerns the technology is medically unsafe and has caused the deaths of school children near St. Petersburg.
Discussions over the adverse effects of 5G are not new. For over a decade, alternative media have linked technology to myriad health issues, including immunosuppressive diseases and virus replication, the specifics of which are beyond the scope of this website and the author’s knowledge. However, Putin’s pledge to dismantle existing 5G super towers shows the hazards of electromagnetic radiation are rooted more in fact than conspiracy.
Unlike the U.S. and the West, Russia did not start erecting towers overnight when the technology, developed by Qualcomm and the mobile ecosystem, became available in 2015. Since then, the telecom companies in the U.S. have built 150,000 towers; by comparison, Russia had only 22, primarily in Moscow.
United States Marines in Maui had to tactically abort a gunfight with National Guardsmen blockading entry to homes the Maui fires had reduced to skeletal frames or smoldering ruins. The Guardsmen, part of the criminal Biden regime’s illegal Joint Task Force 5-0, had held refugees at gunpoint while FEMA pilfered private belongings that survived the blaze from heaps of ash.
On Wednesday, September 6, a Marine recon platoon in Lahaina met a frazzled middle-aged man who mistook them for Biden loyalists and hurled Molotov cocktails in their direction, screaming he would punish the murderers who killed his wife and left his children motherless. The Marines avoided injury, pacified the grief-stricken father, and assured him they had no part in his wife’s demise. As a corpsman treated him for dehydration and a headwound, the man recounted how “soldiers” put a bullet in his wife’s brain for challenging their tactics while she sifted through remnants of their property for irreplaceable family heirlooms.
On August 29, a White Hat-controlled Arleigh Burke-class destroyer shot down a State Department 767 carrying 180 FEMA personnel from Honolulu to Florida via a stopover at San Francisco International Airport, a source in General Eric M. Smith’s office told Real Raw News.
The shootdown occurred at 2:15 a.m., approximately 300 nautical miles east of Oahu. The plane was flying at 37,000 feet when struck by a single Standard Missile 3 (SM-3). The 767 broke apart midair as it plummeted into the ocean.
A day earlier, U.S. Marines in Maui learned that FEMA Director Deanne Criswell was ordering staff in Hawaii to leave for the Florida Panhandle in anticipation of Hurricane Idalia’s imminent landfall. They heard that Criswell had appropriated a State Department aircraft scheduled to depart Honolulu at 2:00 a.m. the following morning, an hour at which only a few flights, mostly air cargo, would be arriving at or leaving the airport.
United States Marines have detained a U.S. Army National Guard captain who arrived at Camp Pendleton’s gates claiming to hold an urgent message for General Eric M. Smith’s eyes only, a source in the general’s office told Real Raw News.
The Tuesday incident occurred at 4:30 p.m., when the captain, wearing his Class A uniform, approached Pendleton’s Las Pulgas gate in a black sedan and told sentries that he had “come for General Smith,” a poor choice of words. The vigilant Marine sentinels recognized the captain’s insignia as belonging to the 40th Infantry Division at Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Base, California, a facility plagued with malefic officers loyal to the criminal Biden regime.
The Marines yanked the dapper captain from the vehicle, hurled him to the pavement, stood him up, handcuffed him behind his back, and meticulously frisked him. One marine slid a circular mirror affixed to an aluminum pole under the sedan, looking for explosives. Having diligently searched the captain and his car and found only a manilla envelope marked ‘for General Eric M. Smith’s eyes only,’ the Marines phoned in the intrusion and awaited the arrival of military police.
Investigators from the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division (CID) have found and arrested a former Army Staff Seargent (E-6) who bribed future enlistees to take part in the Deep State’s war against President Donald J. Trump and his supporters, sources in Gen. Eric M. Smith’s office told Real Raw News.
As reported last week, a few of the 165 Fort Drum soldiers in White Hat Custody revealed to investigators that military recruiters visiting High Schools had singled out students who disliked Trump and promised them $5,000 a month plus base pay to enlist and await further orders. Those accepting the offer were eventually assigned to companies and platoons loyal to Lloyd Austin and the criminal Biden regime.
Our source said White Hats pulled and reviewed the soldiers’ personnel files.
“Someone with much authority redacted, blacked out, recruitment details on 145 files, the recruitment stations, the station commanders, and the recruiters’ names. Only a bigwig at the DOD could do that, and it has complicated our job because only four of these guys are talking. Three remembered their recruiters’ names, and two were recruited by the same sergeant at the same high school the same year,” our source said.
On Vladimir Putin’s orders, Russian Armed Forces on Friday executed a roomful of Telecom executives who eschewed Putin’s 5G moratorium and began raising a new 5G tower in Moscow’s opulent Ramenki District, an elite neighborhood with the corresponding price tag for real estate.
As reported last week, Putin banned 5G throughout the Russian Federation and dismantled existing towers in Russia’s three largest cities—Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Novosibirsk—citing reports that electromagnetic frequencies had killed school children. At an earlier meeting, an agent with Putin’s Presidential Protection Force shot an MTS Telecom executive dead for questioning the Russian president’s authority.
On Friday morning, a dozen more MTS executives shared his fate, FSB agent Andrei Zakharov told Real Raw News.
He added that they were doomed to die the moment they contracted a trucking firm to haul flatbeds filled with steel latticework to the same spot in Ramenki where the Engineer Troops of the Russian Federation had toppled a tower ten days earlier.
A joint U.S. Special Forces and Russian Spetznas infiltration unit has rescued 73 children from a horrific dungeon in Ukraine and slaughtered a score of abductors who had been draining the kids of adrenal fluid with plans to market them as child sex slaves afterward, a source in General Eric M. Smith’s office told Real Raw News.
The operation, which occurred last Thursday, August 10, marks the first time Vladimir Putin’s elite forces and America’s intrepid Special Operations community have cooperated in a mutual venture aimed at eradicating the Adrenochrome trade and ending the proliferation of pedophilia in a country whose president, the demon Volodymyr Zelenskyy, reportedly keeps a harem of drugged kids at his Kyiv estate.
Our source said Gen. Smith last Tuesday, August 8, received a personal telephone call from Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, who claimed to have intelligence that “people working for the pig Zelenskyy” were…
White Hats have confirmed reports that FEMA and the Hawaii National Guard in Maui are preventing citizen relief convoys from delivering food, water, and other living essentials to displaced persons who have been wandering the island like zombies since suspicious fires turned the tropical paradise into an inescapable inferno.
On Monday videos began surfacing on social media, showing how little FEMA cares about the people the agency promised to help. Civilian boats arriving with crates of canned food and bottled water are ordered to return to sea. A Guardsman shouts through a bullhorn that he has been authorized to use deadly force to enforce the blockade.
Such authorization had come from Josh Green, Hawaii’s Democrat governor and Biden loyalist, who ordered road closures, impeding escape, as towering flames laid waste to residential and resort communities whose survival hinges on tourism.
United States Marine reinforcements in Maui have dismantled a Deep State blockade and forced FEMA and National Guard insurgents into a disorganized retreat that saw the murderous felons fleeing for their lives.
As reported previously, the Marines who arrived in Maui Wednesday afternoon were quickly outnumbered and outgunned by a Deep State army comprised of FEMA, local law enforcement, and the Hawaii National Guard. Overnight, Marines engaged the enemy in several blistering firefights but often found themselves defensive against insurmountable odds. Early battle damage assessments and casualty reports put the number of killed or wounded enemies at approximately 160; two Marines died from gunfire, and five suffered debilitating injuries severe enough to pull them from battle.
Reinforcements—sources would not specify numbers—showed up in hell-scorched Maui Thursday morning, as FEMA and The Red Cross were preventing civilian relief boats, including a yacht manned by the Cajun Navy, from offloading food and water to desperate victims.
As the August 8 inferno scorched the tropical landscape and residents and tourists sought guidance from island officials, Maui’s top emergency management official, Herman Andaya, had only one key responsibility: sound the island’s 80-siren alarm system, a blaring klaxon that would have encouraged confused and injured islanders to at once flee the fire-ravaged areas. He could have triggered the warning from any of the island’s civil defense shelters or with a single phone call. But while Lahaina burned, Andaya was 100 miles away in Honolulu, where he and FEMA Mission Support Associate Administrator Eric Lecky enjoyed poached swordfish and pricey alcohol—as if to celebrate a victory—at Blue Ocean Seafood & Steak.
That repast would be among their last as free men.
United States Marines under Gen. Smith’s command arrested Andaya Tuesday on treason charges, days after he resigned amid public criticism for not sounding the alarm. Andaya defended his decision by saying he feared the public would mistake the siren for a tsunami warning.
Andaya was apprehended at Dillinger Airfield on the northwest tip of Oahu while awaiting the arrival of a Cessna 310 to ferry him to Kaui for unknown reasons. He reportedly tried to abscond on foot but was quickly subdued and arrested.
United States Marines on Friday “neutralized” a FEMA convoy that fled fire-stricken Lahaina for Haleakalā National Park, a 33,000-acre wilderness and home to the state’s highest peak, Mount Haleakalā, from where FEMA might have escaped had the Marines not downed a helicopter sent to rescue the federal brigands.
The chase began early Friday morning when a Marine platoon and FEMA had a shootout in the Maui Forest Reserve east of Lahaina Beach. Responding to intelligence reports, the Marines caught FEMA red-handed burying corpses in an earthen grave the feds had excavated with a backhoe. A procession of FEMA agents hauled the bodies of men, women, and children out of an M35 “deuce and a Half” cargo truck and heaped them atop one another as federal supervisors stood around smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee.
The Marines had dismounted a distance away and had crept into FEMA’s AO undetected. FEMA, Real Raw News’ source in Gen. Smith’s office would later say, were more interested in cracking insensitive jokes about the dead than posting lookouts to watch for White Hat forces.
A Marine reconnaissance platoon in Maui was forced to kill 15 civilians from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, part of the criminal Biden regime’s joint task force called JTF-50, who had arrived in the state to allegedly distribute water and food and evaluate the incomprehensible damage, a source in Gen. Smith’s office told Real Raw News.
“Criswell and FEMA were put in charge of the task force, and armed forces there are loyal to the fake president Biden, and they’re trying to undo all the help we’ve done. It’s a bloody fuc***** warzone out there,” he said of the unspeakable carnage.
On Saturday, August 26, White Hats in Lahaina spotted a civilian work crew erecting a barbwire fence and unspooling concertina wire around a 3-square-block radius centered near Kamamalu Street and Piki Place, a residential district replete with private residences, some untouched by the fires.
“If any civilians were in the area, they were in hiding. They probably already learned if you resist, you get shot,” he added.
The joint U.S. Special Forces-Spetznas strike force that rescued 73 children from Ukrainian Adrenochrome peddlers last week has scored another victory, this time against a 62-year-old child trafficker who had been living a Heffneresque lifestyle at his opulent, guarded estate in Crimea, an autonomous republic of Ukraine encompassing most of Crimea that Russia annexed in 2014.
As reported last week, elements of the U.S. and Russian militaries entered an informal détente to save American and Russian children held hostage at an Adrenochrome laboratory in southern Ukraine. The unit killed the facility’s security and freed the children without suffering a friendly casualty.
General Eric M. Smith, 5th Special Forces Group commander Brent Lindemen, and Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, the latter of whom initially proposed the coupling of the two militaries, were so pleased with the team’s operational success and degree of cooperative commitment that they posited an idea to…
