Gaming the System Is Easy When You Are the System

FBI agent: Uh oh, Yasir Afifi found our bug on his car.
FBI supervisor: Well, it happens sometimes. What are the results?
agent: He’s so normal and unsuspicious that he makes us look silly, sir.
supervisor: Well, that is a problem, but let’s play it by the book.
agent: Oh yeah, major intimidation incoming! This is the fun part!
supervisor: Maybe if we make him mad enough he can be radicalized, and then we score anyway.

clue:

give me a clue so sweet and true
