Since your most interesting decision to invite Dr Gerald McCann to be a guest speaker at a conference hosted by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) on the subject of sexually-motivated child abductions. I could not help but wonder some little about you and what path your career might have taken prior to joining the CEOP.
Not unnaturally then that I should carry out a little research, for reasons numerous, but primarily to ascertain your bona fides. A little research as to your experience and qualifications, not least of those reasons being, that your previous career might somehow help me understand what the criteria might have been for your taking the aforementioned interesting decision.
And I must say quite honestly, what an impressive career it has been to date, one only has to read your profile, the one below, used in this instance, but typical of many others, courtesy of the Telegraph.
It soon becomes apparent, one only has to look at your achievements to realise this, that you are not without a great deal of experience in your chosen field, and are in fact nobody's fool.
Profile: Jim Gamble
With more than 25 years experience working in law enforcement, Jim Gamble, 48, is a true career policeman.
Before taking up his current job as the head of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (Ceop) Centre in 2006, he worked as a superintendent in the Police Service of Northern Ireland and, most recently, as acting chief constable and head of the National Crime Squad.
During his time in Northern Ireland he covered both uniform and detective roles before leading anti-terrorist responses in Britain and abroad.
At the National Crime Squad - which deals with serious and organised crime - he oversaw a complex portfolio ranging from firearm deployment to hi-tech crime and intelligence to professional standards and security.
He also set up the National Crime Squad's specialist response cell - the Paedophile Online Investigation Team - and was involved in the creation of the first international law enforcement partnership to combat child abuse online - the Virtual Global Taskforce.
Mr Gamble is married with three children and lives in London.
Having read such an impressive resume however, your hitherto unexplained motive for inviting Dr McCann to speak at your conference, went from interesting to, how shall I describe it, enigmatic? yes enigmatic, from interesting to enigmatic.
Of this enigma however was born a question, just the one, and you might be gracious enough to perhaps furnish an answer.
If for instance, given your vast experience, if during an interview a suspect displayed the same behavioural patterns as Dr McCann displays, as typified below, when he himself is interviewed about the disappearance of his daughter Madeleine, might I ask then your more likely course of action?
Would you further continue to question said suspect, or would you as a matter of fact, extend an invitation to the suspect, inviting him to speak at your next RUC jamboree?
I look forward to your reply with earnest anticipation.

You may wonder why I took the trouble to feature so many graphics, it's because there are so many.
So many lies, so many tells.
