I agree with you.  I couldn't believe they did this, and was especially
disappointed when they dwelled on it for so long.

I also disliked this, but I don't think it is far from truth.  I have
seen several movies (Shoot to Kill comes to mind) where FBI agents
wear similar jackets with what looks like the letters FBI stuck on with
yellow tape, but I assume that they have done their research and know
more about it than I do.  Either that or they use the same wardrobe
company...
