A Time For Fear

"Paradise Lost" by Gustave Doré

When I was a kid, I was afraid of the monsters under my bed. At night, I could hear them scratching and growling, bodies moving in anticipation of the feast. And however reassuring my father was, even bringing a flashlight to show me that there was nothing to be scared of, I still knew they were there. A few years later, I wasn’t afraid anymore. Under the bed were only dustballs and the occasional lost (and usually dirty) sock. That’s one of the things you learn as you grow up — there’s no such thing as the bogeyman.

I have faced some of the monsters of this world. I have witnessed the atrocities that the human race is capable of. But through all this, I had faith — faith that these were only monsters of the mortal kind, and that eventually, Good would prevail. I had faith that by casting a light on them, we might see them for what they really are (spiders and bugs and cockroaches) and find the courage to get rid of them. Forever. Because there’s no such thing as the bogeyman.

But now, I’m not so sure. In the six months since we launched this website, we’ve come across our share of shady characters. From Mexico to Zambia to Russia, it’s been a long trip down cutthroat alleys and murderous passages. We followed leads, we reached out to sources, we cross-checked information. All this hard work is about to pay off, and we are close to completing the overall picture tying all these names together. And I do not like how it looks.

Our most recent findings have allowed us to identify the elusive Boris Tchevchenko — a man whom the CIA describes as “violent, extremely ruthless”, and whom the FSB consider too well protected to press for further investigations. And now, there’s a high probability he has managed to get his hands on nothing less than a nuclear warhead. It is time to be afraid — because the bogeyman is very much real. And he’s out hunting tonight.
