Weekly Intelligence Briefing



(Note: Cleared readers only, please.)

We need a sanity check.

… Yep, still insane.

  When I'm TDY, I worry about local intel services, my cover story, and diarrhea.  When I'm home, I worry less about local intel services.

  Once a people have tasted freedom, they will never again be content with servitude, unless it's flavored with a viable freedom substitute.

  One compromises much to remain uncompromising.

  The Nobel Prize for Irony is won every year by Alfred Nobel.

Executive Intelligence Summary

How do we know the tunnel leading toward the Light isn't a throat? 




Intelligence is its own euphemism.

  I'm not necessarily saying polygraphers are bad people, I just feel that monographous relationships are healthier for everyone involved.

  How many yawns are silent screams.  Then again, how many other yawns resemble extremely loud screams.

  There should be a Christian rock band called Nation, because then their fans could say "I feel moral n' dig Nation!"

  Sometimes, what seems like an evil is really the good in disguise (which, if you think about it, is kind of evil of the good).

Executive Intelligence Summary

The enemy of my enemy, and my enemy, are both on the payroll.



... Don't ask.


Never put off until tomorrow what you can schedule a series of monthly meetings to evolve a framework for a plan to address next year today.

●  SpookSpeak.  Impersonal commo n.  Communication methods used when direct contact is deemed unsafe. (CIA slang: 'marriage counseling.')

  If each of us learned to want less, we would all have so much more – which would be sad because we wouldn't want it.

  I read that people who get their tongue pierced experience difficulty speaking.  I imagine having a pierced tongue doesn't help either.

  Does the saying 'Live life one day at a time' refer to solar days or stellar days?  Because the difference can be nearly 4 minutes.

Whatever doesn't annoy me makes me nicer.

Blow Your Cover!

Nothing says "I can neither confirm nor deny that I regularly read the Covert Comic" like a genuine Covert Comic bumper sticker.

Create your own covert action!  [Officially don’t] purchase and affix these stickers to the bumpers of CIA or FBI counterintelligence officers’ cars, street signs in heavily traveled areas of Georgetown, cubicles at the Defense Intelligence Agency, the back of Air Force One, etc.

Stickers are standard 3x10 inch, full color, and are shipped promptly and secretively via First-Class Mail (no shipping fee!).  Price: $10.  Allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.

(Note: An ultra-classified portion of proceeds from the sale of Covert Comic bumper stickers goes to Fisher House, a tax deductible charity providing lodging and other support to families of wounded US military personnel.  ... And you're right, lady, I am arrogant and self-serving.)





Can't we all just coexist?
