I don’t mean real CIA spies as such, but as everyone knows, the CIA (and the intelligence agencies of many Western countries such as France, Australia, Germany, UK etc, Japan, not to mention Red China) … do have intelligence operatives over here, living here among us, working here among us, sure. Gotta be, right? I know they got them in Bangkok and Seoul, and probably in Tokyo, too.
So who are they, and how can one spot one?
For example, that old woman who runs that boring monthly magazine in Taipei, she could very well be doubledipping for some extra spy work, no? Probably not, since she produces one of the most boring mags on Earth, but then who are the CIA moles here.
Do they work at the English papers as copy boys or as major editors? Are they locals or foreigners? Or do they work for the government as translators or as English teachers or what?
Did anyone ever know a CIA operative overseas? i guess they cannot exactly come out say who they are, that would spoil their cover, but they might even be here on Oriented, for God’s sake!
they live incountry and gather news and info to send back or relay to USA or London or Tel Aviv or wherever. I don’t want to know names, impssible, and I certainly don’t want to blow any covers, but what exactly is going on is this regard?
Any stories? Anyone know about this stuff?
Do they get paid ptime salaries or fulltime and how long do they usually stay incountry? Anyone who has been here over 10 years could very well be moonlighting for the CIA, it would make sense.
But who and how? I’ve always been curios about this, having failed my foreign service exams in DC after college. (Yes, I wanted to be a spy, dammit, like William F Buckley, my hero!)
