Interesting that according to the newspaper article this is their entire staff. Seems the terrorist scheme wasn't as profitable as they thought. Interesting too that those living in homes the entity owns have 45 days to move - that sucks!

what a waste. This was a good idea. Like using the prison in Moundsville WV for a training ground for Federal agents.
