Interview with Captain Chase Hunter

recent weeks we have visited with several of the members of Enigma, a top
secret homeland security group.  They
work outside the law if necessary in order for our country to remain a safe
place to live. Today Captain Hunter took time out of his busy schedule to talk
to us about his work. Welcome, Captain Hunter. We tried to start this interview
several weeks ago and you were called away. Let’s begin by talking about your
job. Just what does it entail?

I’m a professor at the University of Sacramento
Science and Technology. Besides teaching renaissance literature, I teach
several of the romance languages. Several of my classes are now offered
but I was actually referring to your job at Enigma. What is your responsibility

I expose threats to national security then terminate
them. Sometimes that means working in the U.S. other times we have to travel.
you say “we” are you referring to Samantha Cordova, Carter Johnson and Nickolas

Yes. You forgot to mention Vernon Kemp. He’s our
technical support team member. He’s the smartest guy I know. I think he could
run the Space Station on his own brain power. There are a few others that work
behind the scenes like our librarian Claudia, and Dr. Wu who makes sure we’re fit
for duty. All of us have specialties that brings assurance s the job gets
completed. I lead the team into difficult situations knowing everyone will do
whatever it takes to reach our goal.
curious you never mentioned Tessa Scott. It’s my understanding she worked for
you a year ago and may again in the future. What role does she play? Is it true
you two have a complicated relationship? Can you elaborate?

Nothing curious about it. Sometimes civilians are
asked to participate in our mission. Tessa, I mean Mrs. Scott accidentally got
snared into a very dangerous situation. She showed remarkable courage under
fire. With her help Enigma saw resolution to a potentially disastrous terrorist
attack on American soil. Her tenacity and common sense forced all of us to take
a second look at hidden clues. Whether or not she continues on at Enigma is out
of my hands. I would make her part of my team in a heartbeat. The only
complicated part of our relationship is…Well you know that really isn’t any of
your business. That’s between Tess and myself.
she were to sign on with Enigma what would be her role?

Probably since her main
focus is geography, cultures and their human environmental interactions I’m
guessing she’d be an advisor. Again. It’s out of my hands.
know that Benjamin Clark is related to the Prime Minister of Israel. Has that
ever been a problem for the president?

Ben’s allegiance to the
United States and our president has never been called into question. He loves
this country and will protect it no matter who his brother is. I’ve followed
him into battle, taken his advice and carried out his orders too long to ever
second guess his patriotism. He’s one of the greatest men I’ve ever had the privilege
of knowing.
long before you leave again on another mission?

Not long. The president
has called Enigma to Washington D.C. about an urgent matter concerning hearings
on the USS Liberty that Israel tried to sink in 1967. The Israeli delegation is
attending and we’ve received some Intel of a possible attack.
is terrifying. Isn’t there a hurricane moving that way as well? Sounds like a
recipe for disaster. Who will be going with you? And why are you smiling?

Because you ask a lot
of questions just like Tessa. I mean Mrs. Scott. You hardly wait for an answer before
another idea pops into your head. I like that. Anyway back to your questions.
It could get complicated with a hurricane thrown into the mix. The important thing
is to protect the president from any attempt on his life or hearings concerning
the USS Liberty. That’s why I’m taking the whole team. Ben is already on his
way. I wouldn’t worry too much. We do this kind of thing all the time and it
never makes the news.
you say it that way I do feel rather comforted.

I’m glad. Any chance
you can have dinner with me tonight before I fly out in the morning? I think we’d
have other things to talk about besides national security.
that wraps it up this week. Be sure to keep up on the events in Washington the
next week or so. Okay, Captain Hunter. I’m all yours.

I was hoping you’d say
