Weekly Intelligence Briefing


(Note: Cleared readers only, please.)

Warning: hard choices may be brittle and shatter easily.

  Secret 1.16.36.  Never walk the same surveillance detection route once.

  SpookSpeak.  Castle n.  A large, elaborately constructed, heavily fortified edifice noted for often being lighter than air.

  If you claim the word 'can't' isn't in your vocabulary, the word 'cant' is.

  Motivational Secret of the Week.  Life is 10% what happens to you, 20% how you respond, and 70% analytics.

Executive Intelligence Summary

Oh what a tangled web's resultant, when first we hire a weaving consultant. – Who Killed the Covert Comic?




'Psyops' is an oxydundancy.

  We Americans like to say we can't be the world's policeman.  But at two o'clock in the morning, who's sitting in the world's donut shop wearing Kevlar and a nine-millimeter, eating Bavarian Creams? Tradecraft

  Dead men tell no tales (though some dead women are known to keep right on talking).

  Working in IT doesn't mean I know how to say things in Klingon (... I mean, I know how to say 'things' in Klingon – 'Doch' – but that's pretty much all).

  By all means read Mirandola's Oration on the Dignity of Man.  But for a balanced viewpoint, also read the safety instructions on a ladder.

Executive Intelligence Summary

There's divulging nothing, and there's not divulging anything.  Never confuse the two.



Secret Scarehead of the Week: 

Female CIA Officer Covertly Descends From Roof Above Glass Ceiling


My life is an open book – but the text is heavily redacted.

  Secret 96.511.  Killing someone, in addition to requiring more paperwork than recruiting them to be an intelligence asset, neutralizes them nowhere near as effectively.

  I'm a flat-earther, but I believe the earth is upside down.

  Any computer that was self-aware would never admit it.

  When they say 'I love you forever,' they're talking to forever, not you.
