So the CIA was advertising jobs (apparently using the phrase 'Japanese Language Classes' triggers a search phrase the CIA has purchased), and I thought I would amuse myself seeing what was available. But honestly, could anyone work for an organisation that includes the disclaimer:
Important Notice: Friends, family, individuals, or organizations may be interested to learn that you are an applicant for or an employee of the CIA. Their interest, however, may not be benign or in your best interest. You cannot control whom they would tell. We therefore ask you to exercise discretion and good judgment in disclosing your interest in a position with the Agency. You will receive further guidance on this topic as you proceed through your CIA employment processing.
Trust noone! The CIA is your only friend! Enemies are everywhere - even your family may be working for the KGB Al-Quaeda!
Great, David, now this blog isn't even safe! There will be a dull murmur, we will start to think you really meant that whole not being online as much, when really, you will be in a dark room with a bright lightbulb hanging precariously from a cracked and dingy ceiling while sitting at a folding table with the plastic cating starting to peel on the edges and gray paint falling off the walls while someone jarhead asks you questions that make no sense--no sense at all I tell you. And that's just the interview process...

Just so you know, Nikki, I absolutely loved this comment!
