Re: <nettime> FW: [IP] How planespotters turned into the scourge of the CIA


The CIA is quite capable of evading planespotters if that was wanted.
Keep alert for what the all too easily observed hides of the difficult to
spot.

The keystone kidnapping in Italy is believable only as a diversion.

It is not likely that the perpetrators of both open secret operations knew
they were being used to run ploys, but were rather expendable.

True, that most intelligence agencies are composed of bureaucratic 
dolts and blunderers, but there are sufficient miscreants as smart as 
the best anywhere, capable of running black operations well below
what can be revealed with ordinary tools of exigesis and shrewd
commonplaces.

These Smiley cock-up entertainments do beguile but don't get
enarmored by those who study that stuff too for credulous disinfo
to disperse in receptive places. JFK's lust for priapic Bondism, 
superceded by cuckolded George.

Spy numbers have been around for over two decades and still they
are being run to keep those fantasists probing and searching for
patterns.

Shakespeare too. And Jesus fucking Christ. Right, rationalism
and enlightenment. Individualism. Ego. Id. Safe sex. Longing for
the blackhearts to be gutted and drawn, once on newprint, now
the enchantingly verbose blogs.
