I’ve been wondering what Air Force Academy boss Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria has been up to since it was revealed last week that his Fifteen Minutes of Fame were based on a Hate Hoax.

Well, now, we found out: the Anti-Defamation League today gave Silveria it’s “ADL Americanism Award for his commitment, dedication, and leadership in the fight against hate.”

    By my count that’s 57 medals (including repeats), so he’s around 533% more heroic than Audie Murphy (who was probably a racist anyway).

    Such a man as Gen. Jay Silveria comes only once in a generation.

    , @gebrauschund
    Hmmm...I only count 26 awards, plus the Command Pilot wings. Looks like 7 for Audie Murphy, but then Silveria did have a much longer military career.
    , @LondonBob
    One of Gary's closest friends was Audie Murphy, who was America's most decorated soldier who became a Hollywood movie star. During WWII, Murphy battled hundreds of German soldiers and six tanks single-handedly near Holtzwihr, France, while he was firing a machine gun from atop a burning vehicle filled with explosives. It stands as one of the most heroic feats from any war. Murphy suffered from “shell shock” (now called Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome) for the rest of his life.

    Murphy was from Texas, and Bill Decker, Dallas County's sheriff, was his friend. Decker came to California regularly on business, and when he came to town, Gary would arrange for Murphy, Decker, himself, and his partner to dine at the Police Academy. About two weeks after the JFK assassination, in early December 1963, Decker was in town and they all had lunch together. The topic of conversation quickly turned to what arms experts across the nation were discussing: how could Oswald have made those shots with that poor shooting position and mediocre rifle to kill John Kennedy? Nobody at that table thought that it was possible for Oswald to have made those shots.



    After they arrived at their conclusion, Decker told them that he knew that Oswald had not fired the shots, and that a man in Dallas wanted to talk to somebody about it. Oswald died while being transferred to Decker’s custody. Decker knew somebody who could set the record straight, who wanted to talk to somebody not connected to Dallas or Washington. Murphy was interested, and the next week, Murphy, Gary, and his partner were flying to Ruidoso, New Mexico to meet Decker and his friend.

    They met at the airport and went to a diner to talk. Decker's friend was named John. According to John, Oswald was anything but a “lone nut.” He was an American intelligence agent acting under the direction of E. Howard Hunt. Oswald had been recruited into military intelligence when he joined the Marines. His patronage of an expensive Tokyo nightclub as a private, his learning Russian at the highly sensitive U-2 base in Japan, his defection to the Soviet Union, and other oddities were all part of his intelligence career. His intelligence career probably began even before his Marine days, when he was a cadet in 1955 in David Ferrie’s Civil Air Patrol unit; “coincidentally,” Oswald began his “fascination” with communism at the same time. Oswald was developing "communist" credentials for his future activities in infiltrating communist organizations. It was a fairly normal American intelligence path.

    Oswald was inducted into the CIA's covert activities and came under Hunt’s direction. Hunt was a major player in mounting the failed Bay of Pigs invasion, and he, as with many others in the military and CIA, blamed Kennedy for the failure. Hunt dreamed up the crazy assassination attempts on Castro that the United States tried. Hunt's mission in life was eliminating Castro. Oswald came into Hunt's control, and was thrown into the cauldron of the Cuban exile communities in Miami and New Orleans. Oswald did not initially know what his mission would be.

    Hunt was paranoid about Oswald's Russian wife and thought that she might be a Russian spy, so Oswald could tell her nothing about his activities. Oswald’s joining Fair Play for Cuba and his staged “murder attempt” on General Walker were all part of giving Oswald “credentials” that would make his upcoming performance more believable. Hunt had concocted the most bizarre assassination intrigue of all time. Oswald was going to participate in a fake assassination attempt on John Kennedy and frame Castro for it. Oswald’s apparent visit to the Cuban Embassy in Mexico City was part of laying an elaborate trail to Cuba. Hunt believed that if Castro could be implicated in an assassination attempt on JFK, the American people could be riled up into supporting an outright invasion of Cuba.

    JFK was not aware of the fake assassination plan, but high-ranking officials in the government and his administration were. Military intelligence, the FBI, and the CIA were all involved. Oswald was initially leery of Hunt’s plan, but with assurances and after seeing the high-level people involved, he went along with it. Oswald was to fire his rifle into the air, then go into hiding, and the false trail to Cuba was laid. He could come home to a hero’s welcome and live a normal life after America finished mopping up Cuba.

    But something went horribly wrong. The fake assassination turned into a real one. Somebody had infiltrated the operation, interposed the mission, and killed JFK. The real assassins tried killing Oswald after JFK was killed, but policeman Tippit was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and was killed. Oswald escaped, to be captured alive. John said that he knew that Oswald would not have shot a policeman under any circumstances. At the end of his mind-blowing tale, John handed over a thick manila envelope, sealed with wax with a thumbprint on it, which contained the documents that John said would prove his story.

    Murphy, Gary, and his partner flew back to California. They knew that the situation was too big and dangerous for them to pursue. John said that if he went public with his story, he would quickly disappear, never to be heard from again. A few days after that meeting, Decker called Murphy. As John was telling his story in Ruidoso, the CIA and intelligence community were in shock. They did not know what to do and were paralyzed with fear. As they recovered from their shock, they saw themselves facing the firing squad if their involvement in the assassination intrigue became known. The intelligence community decided that they would do everything they could to cover their tracks by invoking “national security.” Decker told Murphy that John had given him the envelope of documents in a moment of panic, and that if Murphy did not give the envelope back, he would be “destroyed.” Murphy did some fast thinking and told Decker that they had torn the envelope into pieces and threw the shreds out of the airplane as they were flying back to California.

    The ADL sent a message, its time White men sent one back.

    Ted Kennedy was known for years to be a drunkard, and serial sexual harasser. Yet nothing was done because White men lacked the initiative and courage to find his victims and bring them out to confront him to inflict maximum damage where the media could not fly air-cover for him.

    The General is liar, braggart, social justice warrior, and loud-mouth. He shares all these characteristics with Harvey Weinstein. Why not find out if he has similar victims, I believe it likely that he has some. It is worth the effort, and show up with said victims if they are to be found (a slam dunk I think given the standard of evidence in the Judge Moore Affair) particularly underage ones at the time; and have them confront him when he is in a public place.

    Message received back!

    Bottom line, this will only stop when fear knots the stomach of the SJW and the ADL. I want that fear, the gnawing fealing that ugly criminal secrets will be found out, that nasty things uncovered, that bad things will happen when White men are defamed and blood-libeled.

  20. It would seem the SPLC needn’t bother infiltrating the Police & Military with their Bolshevik inculcations…the ADL has got it covered.
    The usual ratchet modus:
    >Hate Hoax
    >Outrage from Elite, Guilt Trips, Hectoring, Shaming of student body

    >Hoax Revealed, but in a muted way
    >Sermonette on why the Hoax is still a teachable moment, not because it was a Hoax but because there is probably hidden racism anyway, so everyone still needs to grovel.

    Sometimes I think Andrew Joyce at Occ Dissent is a manic obsessive on ‘behind the scenes’ institutional meddling by the ADL & its allies. Yet, stuff like this happens, and Joyce ends up looking cautious & understated.

    My dad, a WWII Army vet, who lived through the ferocious Battle of Okinawa (see Hacksaw Ridge), received all kinds of combat medals. He said the only medal he treasures is his Combat Infantryman Badge. He also says that if he knew what America would become he would’ve never gone off to war.

    The mall is 1/2 dead. The traditional, 80′s style enclosed mall with anchor department stores is bleeding out. It has been for a long time, but now it’s for real. The dying ones are the ‘B’ malls. They have been hanging on forever, but now the department stores are about done. And the ‘in line’ stores are going bankrupt or restructuring and closing their least profitable stores. An A+ mall — the kind with an Apple Store — and high end demographics is still fine.

    However, for many, if not most Americans, there are outdoor centers referred to as ‘Power Centers’ or ‘Lifestyle Centers’ which have the same retailers as the better or more useful mall stores.

    Upscale national-chain specialty stores with dining and entertainment in an outdoor setting.

    There are over 400 of these, so no need to set foot in an 80′s style enclosed environment.

    I believe Douglas MacArthur (not my favorite American commander but an overall asset) wore only his Combar Infantryman Badge, the one of which he was most proud. Steve had a photo of Raymond Spruance with two or three ribbons above his left pocket. After a crossover point, the number of ribbons is probably in inverse proportion to genuine military prowess.

    Ike, it was said, was laid to rest in his D-Day uniform, with the only ribbons on his chest being those he had earned commanding the Normandy invasion. I heard this anecdote during a D-Day documentary on TV. Oddly enough, the guy relating it on camera was a thirty-something Army historian with four rows of ribbons.

    The mall is 1/2 dead. The traditional, 80's style enclosed mall with anchor department stores is bleeding out. It has been for a long time, but now it's for real. The dying ones are the 'B' malls. They have been hanging on forever, but now the department stores are about done.

    The same way the one near me north of Boston does...very nicely, thank you. They even flood one of the courtyard areas to make a skating rink and you can rent skates there.

    When they were finishing the 2nd phase of the mall, I spoke to one of the corporate guys having coffee at the Starbucks there, and he told me that one of the main reasons the location was chosen was the inability of riffraff to get there without a vehicle.

    As a northerner, my question is how would one function in Miami or Phoenix from May to September?

    At its height, the Italian American Civil Rights had more than 100,000 members and included honorary members like John Lindsay, who had been mayor of New York, and Nelson Rockefeller, who had been governor of New York and was a national public figure who later became vice president.

    It became to be regarded as a joke because of the dubious circumstances of its founding. It was founded by Joe Colombo, head of the Colombo Family, one of the Five Families of New York, the top mafia families in the city and country. And it was founded to protest the arrest of Colombo's son and to counter the negative publicity against Colombo and the Colombo family. A year after it was founded, Colombo was shot and put into a coma at a rally the group held. It's believed he was shot on orders of the other mafia families who believed the civil rights group was bringing too much heat on the mafia families. It disbanded shortly thereafter.

    Wow Gen. Silveria, that sure is a whole bunch of medals you're wearing!

    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/99/Jay_B._Silveria_%283%29.jpg/614px-Jay_B._Silveria_%283%29.jpg

    By my count that's 57 medals (including repeats), so he's around 533% more heroic than Audie Murphy (who was probably a racist anyway).

    http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-VR2udl3fuV0/U4YLByAMq5I/AAAAAAAAKzw/kMYLSjz4s7o/s1600/audie+murphy+3.jpg

    Such a man as Gen. Jay Silveria comes only once in a generation.

    One of Gary’s closest friends was Audie Murphy, who was America’s most decorated soldier who became a Hollywood movie star. During WWII, Murphy battled hundreds of German soldiers and six tanks single-handedly near Holtzwihr, France, while he was firing a machine gun from atop a burning vehicle filled with explosives. It stands as one of the most heroic feats from any war. Murphy suffered from “shell shock” (now called Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome) for the rest of his life.

    Murphy was from Texas, and Bill Decker, Dallas County’s sheriff, was his friend. Decker came to California regularly on business, and when he came to town, Gary would arrange for Murphy, Decker, himself, and his partner to dine at the Police Academy. About two weeks after the JFK assassination, in early December 1963, Decker was in town and they all had lunch together. The topic of conversation quickly turned to what arms experts across the nation were discussing: how could Oswald have made those shots with that poor shooting position and mediocre rifle to kill John Kennedy? Nobody at that table thought that it was possible for Oswald to have made those shots.

    [MORE]

    After they arrived at their conclusion, Decker told them that he knew that Oswald had not fired the shots, and that a man in Dallas wanted to talk to somebody about it. Oswald died while being transferred to Decker’s custody. Decker knew somebody who could set the record straight, who wanted to talk to somebody not connected to Dallas or Washington. Murphy was interested, and the next week, Murphy, Gary, and his partner were flying to Ruidoso, New Mexico to meet Decker and his friend.

    They met at the airport and went to a diner to talk. Decker’s friend was named John. According to John, Oswald was anything but a “lone nut.” He was an American intelligence agent acting under the direction of E. Howard Hunt. Oswald had been recruited into military intelligence when he joined the Marines. His patronage of an expensive Tokyo nightclub as a private, his learning Russian at the highly sensitive U-2 base in Japan, his defection to the Soviet Union, and other oddities were all part of his intelligence career. His intelligence career probably began even before his Marine days, when he was a cadet in 1955 in David Ferrie’s Civil Air Patrol unit; “coincidentally,” Oswald began his “fascination” with communism at the same time. Oswald was developing “communist” credentials for his future activities in infiltrating communist organizations. It was a fairly normal American intelligence path.

    Oswald was inducted into the CIA’s covert activities and came under Hunt’s direction. Hunt was a major player in mounting the failed Bay of Pigs invasion, and he, as with many others in the military and CIA, blamed Kennedy for the failure. Hunt dreamed up the crazy assassination attempts on Castro that the United States tried. Hunt’s mission in life was eliminating Castro. Oswald came into Hunt’s control, and was thrown into the cauldron of the Cuban exile communities in Miami and New Orleans. Oswald did not initially know what his mission would be.

    Hunt was paranoid about Oswald’s Russian wife and thought that she might be a Russian spy, so Oswald could tell her nothing about his activities. Oswald’s joining Fair Play for Cuba and his staged “murder attempt” on General Walker were all part of giving Oswald “credentials” that would make his upcoming performance more believable. Hunt had concocted the most bizarre assassination intrigue of all time. Oswald was going to participate in a fake assassination attempt on John Kennedy and frame Castro for it. Oswald’s apparent visit to the Cuban Embassy in Mexico City was part of laying an elaborate trail to Cuba. Hunt believed that if Castro could be implicated in an assassination attempt on JFK, the American people could be riled up into supporting an outright invasion of Cuba.

    JFK was not aware of the fake assassination plan, but high-ranking officials in the government and his administration were. Military intelligence, the FBI, and the CIA were all involved. Oswald was initially leery of Hunt’s plan, but with assurances and after seeing the high-level people involved, he went along with it. Oswald was to fire his rifle into the air, then go into hiding, and the false trail to Cuba was laid. He could come home to a hero’s welcome and live a normal life after America finished mopping up Cuba.

    But something went horribly wrong. The fake assassination turned into a real one. Somebody had infiltrated the operation, interposed the mission, and killed JFK. The real assassins tried killing Oswald after JFK was killed, but policeman Tippit was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and was killed. Oswald escaped, to be captured alive. John said that he knew that Oswald would not have shot a policeman under any circumstances. At the end of his mind-blowing tale, John handed over a thick manila envelope, sealed with wax with a thumbprint on it, which contained the documents that John said would prove his story.

    Murphy, Gary, and his partner flew back to California. They knew that the situation was too big and dangerous for them to pursue. John said that if he went public with his story, he would quickly disappear, never to be heard from again. A few days after that meeting, Decker called Murphy. As John was telling his story in Ruidoso, the CIA and intelligence community were in shock. They did not know what to do and were paralyzed with fear. As they recovered from their shock, they saw themselves facing the firing squad if their involvement in the assassination intrigue became known. The intelligence community decided that they would do everything they could to cover their tracks by invoking “national security.” Decker told Murphy that John had given him the envelope of documents in a moment of panic, and that if Murphy did not give the envelope back, he would be “destroyed.” Murphy did some fast thinking and told Decker that they had torn the envelope into pieces and threw the shreds out of the airplane as they were flying back to California.

    Brutosale is correct. I'm a former service member and have one of these things. I was also an adjutant during my time in service and so was involved in the awards process.

    The "fruit salad" is ridiculous but is pretty much a resume you wear on your dress uniform. About 90% of the ribbons are ribbons awarded automatically after completing some sort of an assignment. For officers, even the actual awards are usually given pretty automatically after a high profile assignment where you didn't get into some sort of trouble.

    Former servicemen correct me if I’m wrong, but those aren’t medals. They’re the “fruit salad” represents the places where the soldier has served. Of course a modern prancer will have served in many more places than a WW II vet.
     
    Wrong. The medal or service ribbon (fruit salad) represents awards and medals worn in place of medals. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Service_ribbon

    Brutosale is correct. I’m a former service member and have one of these things. I was also an adjutant during my time in service and so was involved in the awards process.

    The “fruit salad” is ridiculous but is pretty much a resume you wear on your dress uniform. About 90% of the ribbons are ribbons awarded automatically after completing some sort of an assignment. For officers, even the actual awards are usually given pretty automatically after a high profile assignment where you didn’t get into some sort of trouble.

    It's as I thought; the fruit salad is for "being there", whether under constant fire or a comfortable REMF.

    Wow Gen. Silveria, that sure is a whole bunch of medals you're wearing!

    By my count that's 57 medals (including repeats), so he's around 533% more heroic than Audie Murphy (who was probably a racist anyway).

    The more rinky dink the country, the more corrupt, incompetent and despotic the leaders, the more decorations they have on their uniforms.

    We are descending into third-world-ism as our culture and demographics change. This is just another sign.

    As Yogi Berra said, “You can observe a lot by watching.”

    That’s sort of a rule of science, which a lot of people don’t use anymore. We’re not allowed to notice patterns, even when our leaders are evolving into shit.

    John did not attend a third rate University. His book on the Riemann Hypothesis is standard reading for teenagers who aspire to take a crack at the Riemann Hypothesis one day as a professional mathematician. Of the four popular books that came out on the Riemann Hypothesis at the time…John’s book was the best.

    Takes his place amongst previous recipients like mobster Moe Dalitz. Why the ADL is regarded with reverence yet the Italian-American Civil Rights League is treated as a joke. Apparently there also was an American Italian Anti-Defamation League but they were sued by the ADL due to the name. Frank Sinatra was the national chairman, presumably all three were essentially mob creations.

    At its height, the Italian American Civil Rights had more than 100,000 members and included honorary members like John Lindsay, who had been mayor of New York, and Nelson Rockefeller, who had been governor of New York and was a national public figure who later became vice president.

    It became to be regarded as a joke because of the dubious circumstances of its founding. It was founded by Joe Colombo, head of the Colombo Family, one of the Five Families of New York, the top mafia families in the city and country. And it was founded to protest the arrest of Colombo’s son and to counter the negative publicity against Colombo and the Colombo family. A year after it was founded, Colombo was shot and put into a coma at a rally the group held. It’s believed he was shot on orders of the other mafia families who believed the civil rights group was bringing too much heat on the mafia families. It disbanded shortly thereafter.

    My dad, a WWII Army vet, who lived through the ferocious Battle of Okinawa (see Hacksaw Ridge), received all kinds of combat medals. He said the only medal he treasures is his Combat Infantryman Badge. He also says that if he knew what America would become he would’ve never gone off to war. Some of his surviving WWII Army buddies have said the same thing.

    I honor and salute your father’s service. I’ve read Okinawa was a very tough battle. I’ve also read that some British WWII veterans have made comments similar to your father’s. My mother-in-law lived in occupied France during WWII–even had German troops in the home. She says the Germans were less intrusive than the Muslims are today, although she says it very quietly because that kind of thing can get you prosecuted in France.

    The ADL sent a message, its time White men sent one back.

    Ted Kennedy was known for years to be a drunkard, and serial sexual harasser. Yet nothing was done because White men lacked the initiative and courage to find his victims and bring them out to confront him to inflict maximum damage where the media could not fly air-cover for him.

    The General is liar, braggart, social justice warrior, and loud-mouth. He shares all these characteristics with Harvey Weinstein. Why not find out if he has similar victims, I believe it likely that he has some. It is worth the effort, and show up with said victims if they are to be found (a slam dunk I think given the standard of evidence in the Judge Moore Affair) particularly underage ones at the time; and have them confront him when he is in a public place.

    Message received back!

    Bottom line, this will only stop when fear knots the stomach of the SJW and the ADL. I want that fear, the gnawing fealing that ugly criminal secrets will be found out, that nasty things uncovered, that bad things will happen when White men are defamed and blood-libeled.

    I’d take it one step further. The mere accusation of sexual misconduct is enough to destroy a career today, whether there’s any objective veracity to it or not. Just saying…

    One of Gary's closest friends was Audie Murphy, who was America's most decorated soldier who became a Hollywood movie star. During WWII, Murphy battled hundreds of German soldiers and six tanks single-handedly near Holtzwihr, France, while he was firing a machine gun from atop a burning vehicle filled with explosives. It stands as one of the most heroic feats from any war. Murphy suffered from “shell shock” (now called Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome) for the rest of his life.

    Murphy was from Texas, and Bill Decker, Dallas County's sheriff, was his friend. Decker came to California regularly on business, and when he came to town, Gary would arrange for Murphy, Decker, himself, and his partner to dine at the Police Academy. About two weeks after the JFK assassination, in early December 1963, Decker was in town and they all had lunch together. The topic of conversation quickly turned to what arms experts across the nation were discussing: how could Oswald have made those shots with that poor shooting position and mediocre rifle to kill John Kennedy? Nobody at that table thought that it was possible for Oswald to have made those shots.



    After they arrived at their conclusion, Decker told them that he knew that Oswald had not fired the shots, and that a man in Dallas wanted to talk to somebody about it. Oswald died while being transferred to Decker’s custody. Decker knew somebody who could set the record straight, who wanted to talk to somebody not connected to Dallas or Washington. Murphy was interested, and the next week, Murphy, Gary, and his partner were flying to Ruidoso, New Mexico to meet Decker and his friend.

    They met at the airport and went to a diner to talk. Decker's friend was named John. According to John, Oswald was anything but a “lone nut.” He was an American intelligence agent acting under the direction of E. Howard Hunt. Oswald had been recruited into military intelligence when he joined the Marines. His patronage of an expensive Tokyo nightclub as a private, his learning Russian at the highly sensitive U-2 base in Japan, his defection to the Soviet Union, and other oddities were all part of his intelligence career. His intelligence career probably began even before his Marine days, when he was a cadet in 1955 in David Ferrie’s Civil Air Patrol unit; “coincidentally,” Oswald began his “fascination” with communism at the same time. Oswald was developing "communist" credentials for his future activities in infiltrating communist organizations. It was a fairly normal American intelligence path.

    Oswald was inducted into the CIA's covert activities and came under Hunt’s direction. Hunt was a major player in mounting the failed Bay of Pigs invasion, and he, as with many others in the military and CIA, blamed Kennedy for the failure. Hunt dreamed up the crazy assassination attempts on Castro that the United States tried. Hunt's mission in life was eliminating Castro. Oswald came into Hunt's control, and was thrown into the cauldron of the Cuban exile communities in Miami and New Orleans. Oswald did not initially know what his mission would be.

    Hunt was paranoid about Oswald's Russian wife and thought that she might be a Russian spy, so Oswald could tell her nothing about his activities. Oswald’s joining Fair Play for Cuba and his staged “murder attempt” on General Walker were all part of giving Oswald “credentials” that would make his upcoming performance more believable. Hunt had concocted the most bizarre assassination intrigue of all time. Oswald was going to participate in a fake assassination attempt on John Kennedy and frame Castro for it. Oswald’s apparent visit to the Cuban Embassy in Mexico City was part of laying an elaborate trail to Cuba. Hunt believed that if Castro could be implicated in an assassination attempt on JFK, the American people could be riled up into supporting an outright invasion of Cuba.

    JFK was not aware of the fake assassination plan, but high-ranking officials in the government and his administration were. Military intelligence, the FBI, and the CIA were all involved. Oswald was initially leery of Hunt’s plan, but with assurances and after seeing the high-level people involved, he went along with it. Oswald was to fire his rifle into the air, then go into hiding, and the false trail to Cuba was laid. He could come home to a hero’s welcome and live a normal life after America finished mopping up Cuba.

    But something went horribly wrong. The fake assassination turned into a real one. Somebody had infiltrated the operation, interposed the mission, and killed JFK. The real assassins tried killing Oswald after JFK was killed, but policeman Tippit was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and was killed. Oswald escaped, to be captured alive. John said that he knew that Oswald would not have shot a policeman under any circumstances. At the end of his mind-blowing tale, John handed over a thick manila envelope, sealed with wax with a thumbprint on it, which contained the documents that John said would prove his story.

    Murphy, Gary, and his partner flew back to California. They knew that the situation was too big and dangerous for them to pursue. John said that if he went public with his story, he would quickly disappear, never to be heard from again. A few days after that meeting, Decker called Murphy. As John was telling his story in Ruidoso, the CIA and intelligence community were in shock. They did not know what to do and were paralyzed with fear. As they recovered from their shock, they saw themselves facing the firing squad if their involvement in the assassination intrigue became known. The intelligence community decided that they would do everything they could to cover their tracks by invoking “national security.” Decker told Murphy that John had given him the envelope of documents in a moment of panic, and that if Murphy did not give the envelope back, he would be “destroyed.” Murphy did some fast thinking and told Decker that they had torn the envelope into pieces and threw the shreds out of the airplane as they were flying back to California.
