Doctor Arnim Zola has returned to work with The Winter Soldier. He is not happy to have found Doctor Fennhoff is no longer employed by the KGB. He is even less happy to find that no one can tell him where Doctor Fennhoff is currently located. The Director has discouraged this line of questioning.

Doctor Zola is also most disappointed that The Director has tried to utilize The Winter Soldier, again, while he was not present. It is his adamant belief that Winter is a weapon and not a spy. He has repeated his mantra to all who will hear that The Winter Soldier is a Fist and should not be used for delicate work. He is meant to be a hammer to crush the enemy and not a hidden knife to slip between the ribs.

Doctor Zola is doing the conditioning himself for the new mission. He is confident that his programming will hold. He is certain that problems with Winter are all to lay at the feet of The Director trying to turn him into something he is not meant to be.

The mission is another assassination. The Director is frustrated at the limited usefulness of The Winter Soldier. He and Zola are both quite vocal in their disparate beliefs and goals.

The Winter Soldier has been subjected to therapy and programming.

He was sent out this morning with a standard team; four combatants, two low level technicians familiar with the programming, and one higher level technician to act as handler.

Another successful mission has Doctor Zola feeling quite justified in his goals for The Winter Soldier.

Winter was allowed to spend the day in entertainment and relaxation as a reward for a successful mission. He chose to spend most of this day reading. There has been little cause for him to read in his last few times out of cryo. The books he had to choose from were all Russian novels. Perhaps he has a predilection for slow melodrama.

The KGB has agreed to continue to send The Winter Soldier on assassination missions. With the failure thus far of him to accomplish any espionage based assignments, it is currently deemed a waste of resources to attempt again.

Doctor Zola leaves tomorrow.
