Coffee: Shaken not stirred
We all do it. We all sit in our favourite café or coffee shop and wonder about the other people around us. What are they doing, what is their job, and our imaginations get the better of us, or does it?
A recently released document from the CIA in America has confirmed what some of us have always expected that the person in the next booth working furiously on their computer isn’t just some boring mandarin or a cog in the machine but could easily be a covert secret agent.
Restaurants it appears offer the greatest opportunity for spooks and spies of all sorts to meet the people they seek the most and conduct subtle deals known in the spy world as ‘spy craft’. The meetings whilst looking so accidental are, in fact, carefully choreographed.
So, the next time you order your espresso and sit and ponder those around you, maybe, just maybe one of them could be working for MI6.
