Jack walked back into the courtroom, and asked Harm, " Could you call a sidebar or something?"
Harm asked, " Why?"
Jack replied, " I've got to get Stateside immediately."
Harm nodded as he stood up, and said, " Sidebar your Honor."
The judge nodded as Harm, Singer, Mac, and Bud walked up to the bench. The judge asked, " What is it CMDR. Rabb?"
Harm said, " I'm not sure Your Honor, Special Agent Chegwidden asked me to call the sidebar."
The judge signaled for Jack to approach, and asked, " What's this about Special Agent Chegwidden?"
Jack said, " I'm needed back in the States immediately sir."
The judge asked, " Why Agent Chegwidden?"
Jack replied, " It's Classified."
The judge fixed him with a stern look as he hissed, " Don't pull that classified bullshit with me mister, I want a reason."
Jack just looked the judge right in the eye as he replied, " It's classified, that's all you're getting, now if you'll excuse me I gotta go."
And with that he left the courtroom, and the building, hopped into a Humvee, drove to the airfield, and boarded the waiting Cesnaa Citation X, and was asleep as soon as the plane was airborne.
