Payne worried aloud about the F.B.I. and what it might do next. Law enforcements’ inactivity, he suggested, was something of an insidious maneuver. According to Payne, the F.B.I. had already planted a crazy man to camp out at the front gate and get on-camera and make the militia look bad. . . The radios were “soup.” Part of the problem, Payne said, was that people were taking them but not recharging them. For now, there wasn’t a functional radio in the tower, which seemed pretty important. Payne said it didn’t really matter. Moroni could just yell—everyone below would hear him.
