On This Day — Former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani Takes Many Secrets to His Grave (January 8 2017) [UPDATE : Case before Swedish court could reveal key detail about 1988 mass executions.]

“With what is happening in the U.S. and the possible instability that is going to come in U.S. policy you needed a voice of reason and pragmatism that had some heft to it. He was that voice. Losing that voice is going to make it more likely that any mishap or miscalculation by the Trump team will beget a more unreasonable, more radical, more potentially destructive response by the Iranian regime.”

JOKE — OSS Society : “Don’t believe the BS from The Good Shepherd.” [UPDATE : “Don’t believe the BS from the ODNI.”]

“Don’t believe the BS from ‘The Good Shepherd.’ Donovan recruited lots of first- and second-generation Americans like himself. He said no country in the world had more citizens with knowledge of other countries. The best example are the OSS Operational Groups, predecessors to SF.”

The OSS Society — Tweet (February 25 2020)

Sunday March 1 2021 — Thank God, It is [Joke & Parody] Sunday! There is no doubt that the recent tweet from the Office of Strategic Service [OSS] Society is a about a very serious issue: the diversity of the CIA workforce.

“We have a very strong team of people — the best across CIA — focused on those questions of ‘What?’ and ‘Who?’, led by a very experienced and accomplished senior officer who, a decade ago, led the successful hunt for bin Laden. So we’re throwing the very best we have at this issue.”
