Tara Corbet was waiting for them. Two different Secret Service agents escorted Kane and Sorel to the Secretary of State’s office. Corbet’s report of the events from the morning at the entire Library of Congress and taxi scenario was cryptic and without a contextual meaning. She motioned Kane and Sorel to sit in the two comfortable chairs in front of her desk and stared at them for a few seconds.
“Okay Morgan, I want you to begin from why you really wanted the authorization letter accessing you to the Library of Congress...” She paused and then looked straight at Martha Sorel. “…where you, Ms. Sorel, apparently have a full-time position.”
Kane was prepared and motioned with his right index finger for Sorel to remain silent. “Tara, you and others close to President Holmes have a somewhat secure and private sanctuary here in DC.” Kane glanced sat Sorel and back to Corbet. “Martha and I met while I was on tour in the UK. We become close friends and found that we both were being stalked by two Middle East agents.”
“The two who were killed today?” Corbet raised her eyebrows.
“Yes, but I didn’t know they were terrorists until after they followed us into the archive subbasement in the Library of Congress.”
“We both know that access to that level of the library is only granted by upper-level government offices.” She leaned forward on her desk. “I gave you your authorization letter. Where on this earth did two Middle East terrorists receive similar credentials?”
“I don’t know yet, Tara. I was able to obtain some information from these two Islamic extremists before they died. You have the report that the Secret Service had no choice but to kill them before they killed Martha and I.”
Martha Sorel cleared her throat to get attention. “It’s been clear to us Madame Secretary, that everything that happened so far, including the incidents escalating to this meeting, stemmed from Morgan’s reporting on President Holmes’ stance on the issue of Islamic country views on extremism.”
Corbet shook her head negatively. “Morgan, I made a list of everything that happened, including the two assassination attempts on both of you, and I can’t help but conclude there is one main event these happenings are related to.”
“I absolutely agree Tara.” Kane folded his hands and looked into Corbet’s eyes. “What I have to say is without firm evidence but I need you to agree with me so we can get that evidence.” Kane’s eyes turned a bright yellow and shot beams directly into Corbet’s once again.
