LEYTON: What I'd like to know is, why was he imitating me?
BENTEEN: You have access to all our security procedures and all our protocols. That makes you a logical target.
LEYTON: I suppose so.
BENTEEN: The bottom line is a changeling infiltrated the grounds of Starfleet Headquarters, imitated the Admiral, and got away scot-free. Our security measures aren't working.
SISKO: We're doing everything the president will let us do.
BENTEEN: Maybe that's not enough.
ODO: We could talk to the president again.
LEYTON: I'm afraid that would be a waste of time. Jaresh-Inyo would be a fine president in peacetime, but we have a war on our hands. He doesn't seem to understand that. All he cares about is not upsetting people. But humans are tougher than he thinks. We've created a paradise here and we're willing to fight to protect it.
SISKO: And you think the president isn't willing to fight?
Edited for crosspost.
LEYTON: I think the president is a long way from home. This isn't his world. We can't expect to care about it the way we do.
SISKO: Sisko here.
MALE OFFICER: Captain, your son is trying to contact you. He says it's urgent.
SISKO: Put him through.
JAKE (on monitor): Dad, you'd better get down here right away.
SISKO: What's wrong?
JAKE: It's Grandpa. He's been arrested.
SISKO: What's going on here?
HEAD OFFICER: Captain, we never meant for things to get out of hand.
JOSEPH: What did you think would happen? Storming in here and accusing me and my grandson of being a couple of shapeshifters?
HEAD OFFICER: We never accused you of being a Shape-shifter, Mister Sisko. We were just carrying out our orders. All family-members of Starfleet personnel are required to submit to blood screenings. No exceptions.
