The 'Spy Cat' Splat? If the CIA is in fact taking over America, maybe we should keep them away from the pet stores. (Bizarre details from a book called The Wizards of Langley.)

Of all the animals used to be loyal and responsible to a given task, and someone picks a CAT? Even if this was just an urban legend, it'd still indicate some stupid though processes going on.

So I wonder what the CIA thinks of my cat... whose name is "Osama"?

(It's a long story)

boingboing had a little more info on the documents. Document 27 is relevant one, but the others are pretty weird, too.

Doesn't Osama mean "big cat?" I also heard that bin Laden is a fairly common name, which means OBL's actual name might strike native speakers as Tiger Johnson. Or Big Pussy Smith.

That was my understanding -- "Big Cat" -- and my cat is definitely big: just one big muscle... with teeth and claws... and an insatiable appetite for ear scratching and belly rubbin'.

Back to the topic at hand: that document 27 was hillarious, in a morbid (very morbid, the more I think of it) way. The frankness of it is what does it, I think.

I say we sic PETA on 'em. They're not just clueless, they're cruel.

I glad somebody else asked about Osama's name. You beat me to it, and I'm pleased my guess was right.

Love the ooooooh yeaaaaah! Ear scratch and belly rub for me, too. ;)
