@LCpl X Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. I found out about Acoustic Kitty in a video game of all places.
This is intriguing. I'll keep watching for more info. Thanks for the heads up.
Are these new artifacts or just the stuff they had on exhibit in the old and new hq bldg? In "Class 11" they mentioned a dragonfly spybot, very cool, especially knowing they used it in the 70s:
@Ben K LOL! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acoustic_Kitty I think they said they ran a similar op somewhere in Asia and the kitty ended up being caught, not by the opposing spy service, but by regular folks--
for dinner. LOL!
I'm hoping to see the, er, "equipment" they used in Acoustic Kitty.
Growing up I was fascinated by the CIA, would visit the website every so often and look at the virtual tour. Would be a real treat to go see it in real life, but I wonder how much aside from the stuff on their site is in the museum.
