Call me Jack. Some years ago-never mind how many, being neither the fortunate son, nor the heir to privilege, I thought I would set a course for the mastery of laws.
“The men and women of the United States intelligence community and our armed forces dedicate their lives to protecting our nation, and its people. Our laws that protect national defense information are critical to the safety and security of the United States, and they must be enforced. Violations of those laws put our country at risk. Adherence to the rule of law is a bedrock principle of the Department of Justice, and our nation’s commitment to the rule of law sets an example for the world. We have one set of laws in this country, and they apply to everyone…” — John L. Smith
“There is nothing surprising in this. If they but knew it, almost all men in their degree, some time or other, cherish nearly the same feelings toward the ocean with me…”— Ishmael, “Moby Dick” by Herman Melville
