Why does the Phoenix Organization remain in Seattle? They don't seem to think the Phoenix Staff is in or near Seattle (and in fact, it's half a world a way - distance doesn't seem to be a problem for the remote viewers). John lives in Seattle, and seems to be their biggest threat. So why do they hang around in his backyard? Apparently only because it's Stocking Cap's stomping grounds - is it really so important to have the operation near him that they put the organization at such risk?
