Washington Whispers

It was the lead item on the government's daily threat matrix one day 
last April. Don Emilio Fulci described by an FBI tipster as a 
reclusive but evil millionaire, had formed a terrorist group that was 
planning chemical attacks against London and Washington, D.C. That day 
even FBI director Robert Mueller was briefed on the Fulci matter. But 
as the day went on without incident, a White House staffer had a 
brainstorm: He Googled Fulci. His findings: Fulci is the crime boss in 
the popular video game Headhunter. "Stand down," came the order from 
embarrassed national security types.
