(Continued)

After the talk, one audience member pointed out that none of the examples Melton gave involved U.S. spies wielding sex as a weapon.

              

"The official statement is that we not only do not condone it, but that if someone did that, they'd probably also lose their security clearances," Melton replied. "So that is not something that we do."

              

At least that's the official statement.
