    SISKO: He admitted to committing acts of treason against the Federation. If he was going to lie, I think he would've come up with a better story.

    Odo: I take it that you gave him a blood screening.

    ODO: Well then let's say he's telling the truth... that he was ordered by his superiors to sabotage the power relays. That still doesn't rule out Dominion involvement. For all we know, his superiors have been replaced by changelings.

    SISKO: I thought about that. But if it were changelings, what have they accomplished? There's been no invasion and power's been restored.

    ODO: And Starfleet has fortified Earth. I see your point, Captain. So let's say you're right. Starfleet officers sabotaged the power grid. What are you going to do about it?

    SISKO: That is the bottom line, isn't it? What am I going to do? These aren't evil people, Odo. These are people I've worked with. They're my friends, people I respect. How can I turn against them?

    ODO: It seems to me, if they have committed treason against the Federation, the Federation you swore to protect, then you won't be turning against them... they'll have turned against you.

    JARESH-INYO: Captain, I've been in politics for seventy years. I'm no stranger to overstatement and exaggeration. But the idea that Starfleet would plot to overthrow the Federation government is the single most astonishing accusation I have ever heard!

    JARESH-INYO: Oh, I intend to, though you'll have to forgive me if I remain somewhat skeptical. Now I think you'd better start from the beginning.

    ODO: Several months ago, I learned from one of my people that changelings had infiltrated the Federation. Not long after I gave this information to Starfleet, reports indicate that Admiral Leyton led a contingent of high ranking officers to meet with you and recommend implementation of sweeping security measures meant to protect Earth.

    JARESH-INYO: And I rejected their suggestions as too extreme.

    ODO: It's no secret that Leyton disagreed with you, and despite your calls for calm, his concern about the Dominion threat continued to grow.

    SISKO: When the Antwerp Conference was bombed, Leyton became convinced that the changelings posed a much greater threat to Earth than you were prepared to admit.

    JARESH-INYO: And so Admiral Leyton approached me again, this time with you two at his side. And I agreed to his proposals.

    ODO: We believe that Admiral Leyton and his supporters weren't satisfied with the limited security procedures you authorised. They were convinced that extraordinary measures were necessary to counter the changeling threat.

    Missed a few...

    SISKO: To some of his proposals.

    ODO: We believe that Admiral Leyton and his supporters weren't satisfied with the limited security procedures you authorised. They were convinced that extraordinary measures were necessary to counter the changeling threat.

    SISKO: More than that, they were determined to prove to you and to everyone else how vulnerable Earth was to a Dominion takeover. So they sabotaged the global power grid.

    JARESH-INYO: Starfleet officers committing sabotage?!

    SISKO: I know exactly how you feel. But it's the truth.
