That WAS true. In a time before the legislation against terrorism. And
IF you had nothing to do with the (ridiculous name, heh?) intelligence.

Me thinks the difference is the people never bother to think the
concepts all the way. So it can be PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY (PD) with
certain organisations which are willing to let go because they are
swamped in cases or the particular agent handling your case is quite
lazy. But it can also mean it can mean PLAUSIBLE GUILTY (PG). And while
PD works only once, PG can go ad infinitum. And don't forget there are
some organisations which activate worldwide for which any suspicion
means guilty without any respect for the facts.
