Under a False Flag
Gabriela- beautiful, single, likes horses, works at the right leaning news paper "Aurora"
During an interview with journalist David Preston he was asked if he had any involvement with the CIA himself as an 'international businessman'? His response:
"Of course, if I had worked for the CIA I’d probably deny it, but in fact I never have. I once responded to a blind ad for “overseas opportunities” that turned out to be the CIA’s doing. A few times on overseas business trips I met people at
embassies or industry conferences whose demeanor and interests suggested they were CIA. And once, right after the Gulf War, I met a young analyst at an international mining conference who handed me his CIA business card; he was
seeking information about tunneling contracts in Iraq.
I take it as a compliment that you felt the espionage elements of Under a False Flag seemed real. The truth is, there is much information about the CIA written by former CIA officers. For me, the interesting aspect of espionage is not the
tradecraft so much as the deception required—the consequences of living with constant deception on one’s character or, for that matter, on a nation’s character."
The link is included, just in case, anybody would like to read the full interview between Preston and Gething.
