Weenis, Stinky, and ImmortalPirate, looking at you…
People get me wrong all the time. Part of the job. I recently had a Chinese spy follow me into the mental ward, thinking I met people there… which I did do… and his wife got very freaked out, thinking it was a trap for him. I assured her he would be okay, and when I asked her who she thought I worked for, she responded, “FBI”.
Nope, I do not now, nor never have worked for the FBI.
Why did she think I worked for the FBI? Well, long story, but I worked for a non-profit and a security software vendor who both were made famous fighting against China’s online injustices.
Also, I knew people inside the mental wards, and that was captured on video, so I guess China hacked the video feeds from that mental ward.
Who did I go into the mental ward to meet up with? For me to know and you not to know.
Not CIA, either. I did work *with* CIA for a few years on a project almost 20 years ago. However, I have never been employed by CIA.
Admittedly, it is almost flattering for people to think they know my business in these contexts, though I have also had people slander me because of my covert work, thinking they know it better then I do…
I would never, for instance, disclose secret information about the group I work with in an unauthorized manner.
