    JARESH-INYO: I find that difficult to believe. Admiral Leyton may be somewhat grating and inflexible at times, but for a man of his accomplishments, a man of his distinguished record to commit treason?

    SISKO: I'm sure the Admiral doesn't see it as treason. He would probably defend it as a desperate act of patriotism. Leyton and his supporters think their actions are both necessary and justified.

    ODO: Not to mention effective. Think about it. The power grid fails, and the next thing you know Starfleet security officers are on the streets of every city, armed with phaser rifles, blood testing citizens at random.

    JARESH-INYO: Your story has a certain logic to it, gentlemen. But what it lacks so far is proof.

    SISKO: You want proof? Order Admiral Leyton to withdraw his troops from the streets. See what he does.

    Sisko: I'm sure the Admiral doesn't see it as treason! He would probably defend it as a noble act of Patriotism. He and his supporters think that their actions are both necessary and justified.

    ^ You guys went back a few lines. We are on:

    SISKO: If he orders his troops to stand down, then I'm wrong and I'll offer my resignation. But I don't think that's going to happen. With those troops in place, Admiral Leyton controls Earth. And he's not going to give up that control until he's convinced that he has ended the Dominion threat.

    JARESH-INYO: He may not have to give up anything. If what you say is true, if the power outage was part of Leyton's plan, then it's worked perfectly. Right now the public overwhelmingly supports the increased security. If I tried to remove those troops over Leyton's objections, I'll have a planetwide riot on my hands.

    SISKO: What if we bring you the proof? Hard evidence linking Leyton to the sabotage of the power grid?

    Odo: With that, you could force Leyton to stand down, make him withdraw the troops!

    NOG: I mean he's gone. And as far as I can tell so is every other member of Red Squad. The rumor is they've all been sent on some kind of training exercise.
