Richard Bos uses words carelessly:

>He was doing his job as a good agent provocateur, and was rewarded
>hansomly for it.


        agent provocateur: a secret agent employed to provoke suspected
        persons to commit illegal acts and so be discredited or liable
        to punishment.

Substantiate your charge!

And think a bit about the real users of agents provocateurs, the Gestapos,
OGPUs and FBIs of this world (and their lesser brethren in lesser
countries).

I think, by the way, that whoever told you he "was rewarded hansomly" was
taking you for a ride.

Cheers,

Hugh
