Paging Matt Damon

The-Bourne-SupremacyThis Times article on the recently uncovered CIA assassination program that was reportedly never operational and has just been disbanded includes a funny quote that outlines some of the logistical problems of assassin squads. Perhaps Jason Bourne could be hired as a consultant:

But in practice, creating and training the teams proved difficult.

“It sounds great in the movies, but when you try to do it, it’s not that easy,” a former intelligence official said. “Where do you base them? What do they look like? Are they going to be sitting around at headquarters on 24-hour alert waiting to be called?”

I wonder if the Times journalist’s notes include other queries like, would they get a lounge? If so, who would they get to fill the vending machines? Brown bag only? Should there be wireless and cable?

Otherwise, I also mention this article, because we can expect  al-Manar and NBN to continue repeating, now with more vigor than ever, Wayne Madsen’s claim that Dick Cheney assassinated Hariri along with Elie Hobeika.
