“I tell you, I'm half tempted to break into CIA custody just so I can break Joe Solomon out of CIA custody just so I can break Joe Solomon.”
Ally Carter, Only the Good Spy Young

Max Brooks
“If your Soviet neighbor is trying to set fire to your house, you can't be worrying about the Arab down the block. If suddenly it's the Arab in your backyard , you can't be worrying about the People's Republic of China and if one day the ChiComs show up at your front door with an eviction notice in one hand and a Molotov cocktail in the other, then the last thing you're going do is look over his shoulder for a walking corpse.”
Max Brooks, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

Christopher Hitchens
“Hitherto, the Palestinians had been relatively immune to this Allahu Akhbar style. I thought this was a hugely retrograde development. I said as much to Edward. To reprint Nazi propaganda and to make a theocratic claim to Spanish soil was to be a protofascist and a supporter of 'Caliphate' imperialism: it had nothing at all to do with the mistreatment of the Palestinians. Once again, he did not exactly disagree. But he was anxious to emphasize that the Israelis had often encouraged Hamas as a foil against Fatah and the PLO. This I had known since seeing the burning out of leftist Palestinians by Muslim mobs in Gaza as early as 1981. Yet once again, it seemed Edward could only condemn Islamism if it could somehow be blamed on either Israel or the United States or the West, and not as a thing in itself. He sometimes employed the same sort of knight's move when discussing other Arabist movements, excoriating Saddam Hussein's Ba'ath Party, for example, mainly because it had once enjoyed the support of the CIA. But when Saddam was really being attacked, as in the case of his use of chemical weapons on noncombatants at Halabja, Edward gave second-hand currency to the falsified story that it had 'really' been the Iranians who had done it. If that didn't work, well, hadn't the United States sold Saddam the weaponry in the first place? Finally, and always—and this question wasn't automatically discredited by being a change of subject—what about Israel's unwanted and ugly rule over more and more millions of non-Jews?

I evolved a test for this mentality, which I applied to more people than Edward. What would, or did, the relevant person say when the United States intervened to stop the massacres and dispossessions in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo? Here were two majority-Muslim territories and populations being vilely mistreated by Orthodox and Catholic Christians. There was no oil in the region. The state interests of Israel were not involved (indeed, Ariel Sharon publicly opposed the return of the Kosovar refugees to their homes on the grounds that it set an alarming—I want to say 'unsettling'—precedent). The usual national-security 'hawks,' like Henry Kissinger, were also strongly opposed to the mission. One evening at Edward's apartment, with the other guest being the mercurial, courageous Azmi Bishara, then one of the more distinguished Arab members of the Israeli parliament, I was finally able to leave the arguing to someone else. Bishara [...] was quite shocked that Edward would not lend public support to Clinton for finally doing the right thing in the Balkans. Why was he being so stubborn? I had begun by then—belatedly you may say—to guess. Rather like our then-friend Noam Chomsky, Edward in the final instance believed that if the United States was doing something, then that thing could not by definition be a moral or ethical action.”
Christopher Hitchens, Hitch 22: A Memoir

Mac Barnett
“He checked out his surrounding. More books. A drinking fountain. A poster showing a guy slam-dunking a basketball with one hand and holding a book in the other, urging kids to READ! Weird, thought Steve. How can he even see the hoop?

...

You see, Steven, Librarians are the most elite, best trained secret force in the United States of America. Probably in the world."
"No way."
"Yes way."
"What about the FBI?"
"Featherweights."
"The CIA?"
Mackintosh snorted. "Don't make me laugh. Those guys can't even dunk a basketball andd read a book at the same time.”
Mac Barnett, The Case of the Case of Mistaken Identity

Anthony Horowitz
“The CIA agent looked more dead than alive. Alex wondered if he had been hit, but there was no sign of any blood. Perhaps he was in shock.”
Anthony Horowitz, Skeleton Key

Jennifer Lynn Barnes
“Second thoughts? About the Squad?"
She nodded.
"I'm starting to think the CIA is seriously deranged for letting us do this," I told her, "but that doesn't mean I don't want to do it." I paused. "Actually, the fact that we probably shouldn't be doing this kind of makes me want to do it more."
Zee snorted. "Adrenaline junkie," she accused.”

“The men were smashing windows and aiming their weapons through them. The driver had opened the door and was shouting for the women and children to get out and run and hide. But Ilina realized in some vague way that he never managed to actually say the word "hide." He really said, "Women and children, get out, get out, get out! Run and..." The clerk's wife thought it was odd that he had stopped in the middle of a sentence, and even stranger that she herself knew the word, heard the word "hide" in her head when the driver stopped talking.”

“The door suddenly opened. A leggy young brunette took two steps into the office and stopped short. Her brown eyes widened, she hastily excused herself and turned to leave. Pérez’s jaw dropped as he looked up at her high heels and ankles. He crawled out from under the desk and turned questioningly to his partner. Thorne didn't hesitate. He took one swift stride from behind, clamped a hand tightly over her mouth, and pulled her back into the room, disregarding her wildly flailing legs and frantic attempts to claw his hands away. He shut the door with a backward thrust of his foot.
"What do we do now?" Pérez whined.
"Observe." Thorne spoke calmly, as would a professor demonstrating a familiar operation to a beginner. Using both hands, he briskly snapped her neck. She stopped struggling.”
Clark Zlotchew, The Caucasian Menace

Robert E.  Davis
“As for relegated/delegated responsibility to ensure organizational software licensing compliance, management is still accountable when intellectual property rights are violated. If the safeguarding responsibility is assigned to an ineffective and/or inefficient unit within an organization, IT audit should recommend an alternative arrangement after the risks are substantiated.”
Robert E. Davis

“I always find it strange how the police rarely attribute the source of mental health problems to the environment that the person lives and works in.”

“Investigations revealed that two Venezuelan nationals, Freddy Lugo and Hernán Ricardo Lozano, who had been employed by Luis Posada Carriles, planted the bombs that destroyed a Cuban airliner. The men admitted to the crime and confessed that they were acting under Luis Posada’s orders. During the ensuing investigation, explosives, weapons and a radio transmitter were discovered at Posada’s private detective agency, in Venezuela. Posada was arrested and jailed in Venezuela. Freddy Lugo and Hernán Ricardo Lozano were sentenced to 20-year prison terms.
It was later learned that Posada was overheard saying, “We are going to hit a Cuban airplane and Orlando has the details.” Posada was tried and while awaiting a verdict escaped from prison once again. Apparently a sizeable bribe was paid to his guards and other authorities making it possible to buy his way out dressed as a priest. Once out he fled from Venezuela to Panama and then to the United States. It was only after his return to the United States and he was assigned to Nicaragua, as a deputy to Félix Rodríguez that his CIA connection became apparent. Félix Rodríguez was the CIA Operative who helped capture “Che” Guevara in the Bolivian highlands.
After an investigation of Posada’s background by the press it became apparent that Posada was responsible for 41 bombings during the Contra conflict. By his own admission, he also planned numerous attacks against Cuba. In 1997, it was discovered that Posada was involved in a series of terrorist bombings in Cuba, with the intent of disrupting the country’s fledgling tourist industry.”

“Marita Lorenz, born on August 18, 1939, in Bremen, Germany, was best known for her undercover work with the CIA. She was the daughter of Captain Heinrich Lorenz, master of the S/S Bremen IV, a German passenger ship, and her mother, an American actress, was related to Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr.
Arriving in Havana on her father’s ship in 1959, she met Fidel who talked about improving the Cuban tourist business. It was obvious that he was taken by the beautiful 19-year-old brunette, and upon hearing that she was fluent in multiple languages, asked if she would translate some letters for him. She happily agreed and although continuing on to New York, she was persuaded to return to Havana to do the translations. When Castro arrived in her room, he revealed his true motives, which at the time repelled her. The next day when Castro reappeared things were vastly different.”

“This is a fast-paced, page-turner with suspense in every chapter.”

“Mnamo mwaka 1957 Rais David Eisenhower wa Marekani (inasemekana) alipewa taarifa usiku mmoja akiwa Washington, D.C., kuhusu chombo cha ajabu kilichoanguka kwenye jangwa la Nevada huko Marekani. Ndani ya chombo kile kulikuwa na ‘aliens’ wawili, nao waliomba kuonana na Eisenhower kuhusu ujumbe waliokuja nao kutoka katika ulimwengu wao.

Bila kuchelewa, Eisenhower alipanda ndege usiku huohuo mpaka Texas. Huko alichukua gari hadi kwenye eneo la kijeshi liitwalo Area 51, ambapo ndipo ule ujumbe wa ulimwengu mwingine ulipokuwa umeshikiliwa.

Mkutano wa aina yake ulifanyika chini ya ardhi, kati ya Rais Eisenhower na hao viumbe wawili wa anga za mbali, chini ya tafsiri ya wanasayansi wa NASA. Walichotaka ni urafiki na dunia yetu, inayogombewa na dunia nyingi za ‘aliens’, kwa mbadala wa teknolojia kadha wa kadha ambazo sisi hatukuwa nazo.

Pande zote mbili zilifikia maafikiano, wao wakitupa teknolojia, sisi tukiwapa uwezo wa kufanya majaribio ya kisayansi kwa binadamu wa dunia nzima. Hivyo kuanzia hapo ‘aliens’ wakawa na uhalali wa kuteka watu katika mazingira ya kutatanisha na kuingilia watu usiku wakiwa wamelala, katika tukio la kiulimwengu wa roho lijulikanalo kama ‘sleep paralysis’.

‘Sleep Paralysis’ ni tukio la ajabu. Mtu anapokuwa amelala mwili wake huonekana kufa ganzi, kiasi kwamba anajihisi hawezi hata kunyanyua mkono. Aghalabu hali hiyo inapotokea maana yake ni kwamba ‘aliens’ wanamchukua huyo mtu, kupitia kwenye paa la nyumba aliyolala, hadi mawinguni katika ndege yao. Ndani ya ndege wanaulaza mwili wa binadamu juu ya kitanda cha upasuaji, na kumfanyia upasuaji, ili kusoma biolojia iliyotumika kuumba wanadamu na kujua kwa nini sisi tuko tofauti na wao. Baada ya hapo wanamrudisha huyo mtu kitandani kwake, ambapo atalala usingizi wa kawaida hadi asubuhi. Atakapoamka hatajua kama alifanyiwa upasuaji.

Wapo mamilioni ya watu duniani waliolalamika kutokewa na ‘aliens’, lakini serikali haziwahi kuilithibitisha hilo. Inavyosemekana, teknolojia za ‘aliens’ zinahifadhiwa na Jeshi la Marekani (Pentagon) na shirika la kijasusi la MAJI au MJ12. MJ12 ni watu 12 hatari zaidi duniani, wakiongozwa na mkurugenzi mkuu wa CIA (anayejulikana kama MJ1).”

“God, [Freeway Rick] Ross firmly believed, had put him on earth to be the Cocaine Man. When he wasn't dealing, he was just like anybody else, maybe worse - an illiterate high-school dropout. A zero. But give him a pager and some dope, and he was a virtuoso.”
Gary Webb, Dark Alliance

“All good things come to those who have infiltrated their enemy. That is the Kremlin’s path to victory, and it’s been their faith since 1917. You can be sure the Russians have agents in the White House, in our CIA, in our NSA, in our military, in our State Department. “In a globalizing world,” noted Primakov, “it is impossible to talk about an isolated Russia. We are not isolated from others and we do not isolate them, not even our enemies. We have diversified our economic orientation….” And it’s true. Russia’s strategy is not a strategy of isolation. Russia’s strategy is infiltration and integration. That is why the Russians can openly prepare for war and we don’t feel any sense of alarm. Russia’s agents have been surrounding us all along, whispering sweet nothings into our collective ear. Trouble is coming. Can you hear it's approach? Or are you seduced by sweet nothings?”
J.R.Nyquist

“The world need more honest, authentic, rational, confident, well-rounded, balanced, humble, intelligent polite, kind people, people that do not play with others feelings and dreams. People that lift others up. Happy people full of patriotism, love and dreams. People able to see into others eyes, suffering, despair and do something about it. We need real people. CIA is not a game, an action movie, a thriller book, a video game. CIA is a place of people with integrity, fighters of freedom and peace. CIA should be a role model agency, stopping all this evil that we find around us. Stopping those making fun of others lives and dreams. A place where all the good things in the world converge. We have to do something to make all the social media more safe. We have to remove all the toxic and manipulators out there from here. I am waiting for your next post, I always find inspiration by reading you. I am so far from my dreams and so close to them at the same time. See you soon. Keep up the good work.”

“The third face was middle-aged, with coal-black eyes and a neatly trimmed goatee. He wore an out of style fedora and a poorly-tailored, cheap suit. He was most definitely KGB. The man reached down and pocketed Jeff’s Makarov, and introduced himself.

“I apologize for showing up unannounced, son…” the DDO said as he filled and lit his pipe. “But we need you back. You’ve had half a year off. He looked intently at his favorite troubleshooter. “It’s time for Solitary Man to be reactivated.”
C.G. Faulkner, Solitary Man

“While propaganda, disinformation, misinformation, and assassination have all played an important role in bringing the American democracy to heel, mind control holds its future. It is not surprising that under the label of national security the cryptocracy should seek to control minds. Nor can it come as a surprise that the cryptocracy (always in the vanguard of technology) should develop efficient methods of mind control. But that the legal machinery of the Constitution of the United States should become so fouled by the practitioners of psycho-politics can be experienced only with the outrage one feels at a case of rape, for it not only represents the rape of law and democratic values, but also the rape of heretofore inviolate recesses of man—his mind and soul.”
Walter H Bowart, Operation Mind Control

Edward Snowden
“Two things about the NSA stunned me right off the bat: how technologically sophisticated it was compared with the CIA, and how much less vigilant it was about security in its every iteration, from the compartmentalization of information to data encryption.”
Edward Snowden

Pamela Clare, Hard Asset

“This was the closest anybody in Iraq came to finding WMDs.
Even though it was obvious to me and my staff that there was
no way the vans could have produced biological weapons, a month
after we got the photos, the CIA published a twenty-eight-page
pamphlet insisting that was what they were for.

“[T]he two main sources of heroin in
America since World War II—the so-called "Golden Triangle" in Southeast Asia and
the "French Connection" in Marseilles—were established in the course of operations by
the U.S. Government's intelligence community. They have been protected by that
community, ostensibly to further national security. A newer and more diffuse source of
drugs, in Latin America, has often been protected similarly.”
