The tighter Side Although few details are known, I think I have had enough experiences with plumbers to get a pretty good idea of how they worked. Let us use for illustration purposes the ltfft§ dlicloftUre that the United States was secretly bombing Cambodia. That news obviously didn't come from Cortilb&m Th« Cambodians mre very good about keeping eecrets and would never tell anybody they were being bombed. They Call In Humbert Officials of the National Security Council tJherefore con* chide that it is an inside leak. So they decide to call in the plumbers. "Hello. This is Henry Kissinger at the National Security Council. Would you please send someone over to fix a leak?" "Certainly, air. Will two weeks from next Tuesday be all right?" "Two weeks?!

Finally one of them turns to Kissinger and says, "You 've got a bad leak here." "I suspected aa much," Kissinger says. "How long will it take to fix it?" "It's going to be a major job.
