Boys will be boys on the dark side
Trevor Paglen has managed to ferret out some of the secrets of the black budget.
This is the secret military budget into which billions of our tax dollars are poured for secret operations which are so secret that they are beyond accountability.
So, how did he figure out these secrets? Because the people running these programs are no better than frat boys who need to advertise their brand of machismo with some greek letters emblazoned on their ragged sweat shirts and unimaginative tattoos.
It seems that many of the people in these secret programs insist on wearing patches and insignias which advertise the very programs they're trying to keep secret. And all it took was an artist and photographer to figure it out. Now he'll be publishing a book about these secrets - I Could Tell You But Then You Would Have To Be Destroyed By Me.
