A CIA MOMENT
The CIA joined Twitter a month ago with this initial message: “We can neither confirm nor deny this is out first tweet.” Since then, the federal clandestine agency has maintained both its official bearing and a certain jaunty candor as it seeks to find, well, a happy medium of engaging the public without compromising mission. So three cheers. And to mark its one-month anniversary, the CIA answered five “top questions” submitted by a few of its 639,000 followers who appear eager for the agency’s take on the whereabouts of Elvis and other deceased celebrities, official aircraft, daytime talk hosts, employment and computer issues.
And here are their answers: “No, we don’t know where Tupac is”; “We flew an A-12 OXCART, not a SR-71 BLACKBIRD. Ours flew higher & faster. But, more on that later”; “Sorry for not following you back @TheEllenShow. But if you visit us maybe we can take a selfie?”; “YES, we are hiring,”; No, we don’t know your password, so we can’t send it to you.”
