Hisham Matar
“Nationalism is as thin as a thread, perhaps that's why many feel it must be anxiously guarded”
Hisham Matar, In the Country of Men

“I hoped to offer U.S. intelligence agencies the opportunity to even place CIA officers in NOC (non-official cover) jobs in our company working under our Libyan contract. With agency officers in place with rock-solid “cover for status”—that’s the lie that explains who you are pretending to be—and “cover for action”—that’s the lie that explains what you’re doing while you’re there—the United States would have direct access to people in the seedy, murky underside of Libya, people whose motives and alliances were now unclear. The goals were a tall order, but don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon, because as my dad would say, you never hit high aiming low.”

Excerpt From: Jamie Smith. “Gray Work”
Jamie Smith
