Occam's Razor suggests that there was a widespread case of "we can't do this because it's illegal, but we have to do this because it's the most expedient way to actually do our jobs." If I had to guess, a number of agents/units got conflicting orders from different parts of the org chart and someone with some authority decided that the cover-up was better than the crime. Especially if you can nuke text messages from people who did nothing wrong and followed the law entirely - if you delete your text messages you're guilty. If you delete your entire team's text messages... I mean we'll never know, will we?

    Perfect sentence. I wish we could free his non-SS underlings, but I can't even seem to convince them that they're being abused, which is step 1.

It was cute when it was Shirley Maclaine and Nicolas Cage. this would be a different movie.
