I lived across from Camp Peary in the early 70's, before it was outed. Everybody who lived down that dirt road knew what was going on down there. Strange things indeed, especially at night.  And government officials there were always leaving warnings on doors letting us know the protocol should a child cross onto the base.

I wish I did!  I heard it last night on tv - a review to a news story- they said  "More later" - then I seems to have disappeared.  Been on the lookout since them, but nothing. The story has gone. Poof!

Here's a link to another story:

Internet Blows CIA's Cover (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/chi-060311ciamain-story,0,7277121.story?page=2&coll=chi-news-hed)

Quote
Although the Tribune's initial search for "Central Intelligence Agency" employees turned up only work-related addresses and phone numbers, other Internet-based services provide, usually for a fee but sometimes for free, the home addresses and telephone numbers of U.S. residents, as well as satellite photographs of the locations where they live and work.

Asked how so many personal details of CIA employees had found their way into the public domain, the senior U.S. intelligence official replied that "I don't have a great explanation, quite frankly."

The official noted, however, that the CIA's credo has always been that "individuals are the first person responsible for their cover. If they can't keep their cover, then it's hard for anyone else to keep it. If someone filled out a credit report and put that down, that's just stupid."

Apparently only the second half of the article comes up on this link; trying to link back brings up a registration page, and I'm too busy to bugmenot it right now.  But it sounds fun.

Reason's blog has the following smarmy comment on the article:
