TOP SECRET

Submitted by the Directorate of Science and Technology

The following intelligence organizations participated in the preparation of this estimate

Concurred by the Strategic Assessments Group of the National Acadamies of Science

SUMMARY

This document is to inform necessary parties of CIA findings of prior special investigative projects sponsored by the DS&T and the future of those projects. All findings are, of course, preliminary.

In the NIE of 5 July 1977, the DS&T, at the request of the NSC, described their initial work at (REDACTED) on early training programs of Special Operatives. In the DS&T briefing to (REDACTED) and (REDACTED) titled (REDACTED) , we described the rigorous training program of a control group of 15 orphans. The results of the training were varied. One common theme we noticed during the program was the elevated performance of Subjects N-2 and N-13. The only common factor discovered was both were children of service members. N-2 had particularly elevated progress and it was discovered that the subject is the son of one of our own a Lt. Col. (REDACTED) who is listed as MIA. All subjects, including N-2 were terminated at the end or prior to the end of the projects termination.

We at the Directorate of Science and Technology, believe that N-2's extraordinary performance may be replicated through PROJECT HOMESCHOOL using subjects from similar

Usr folds the yellowed page neatly along it's ancient crease and places it back in the book on her shelf. She sighs and turns to look out the window. She grabs her old, worn lucky ammo magazine. Its finish is worn; the metal surface of the body is bright from years of her twitchy nervous fiddling with it. She presses the rusty magazine follower down with her finger and releases. The squeeeek is a quiet reminder, a long held bit of her past. She closes her eyes, lost in thought. As her eyes fall shut, a tear rolls down her cheek.

Part II
Norbert Laurence strolled into the Western European Operations Center at Langley, his liver spotted hand clutching the ever present cup of coffee, black, with a pinch of salt, a throwback to his years in the Navy. He had joined 'the Agency' during the war, working with the Bletchley Park people on the Japanese ciphers. From there he had moved through all the technical departments in the Agency and had stayed throughout all the changes; OSS. X-2 under State, then CIG... and then finally CIA.

And now, he was dumped here, an ignominious end to a long career. He had wanted the directorship of DS&T, but had been passed over for younger men. Having but a few years left until retirement, he had been shuffled to WEOC, as nothing more than a glorified babysitter for soft, baby faced analysts. He made it his daily task to ream at least one of them out for some transgression, no matter how slight.

He scanned the room looking for his daily victim, just as Gregory Tylor looked up from his station. Tylor, all of 26 years old was one of the youngest to ever start at the Agency, Tylor had quickly climbed the ladder and in a few years might make Sectional Chief. Already in charge of the Italian desk, Tylor's work was impeccable. Needless to say, this made him a favorite target of Laurence's wrath.

Their eyes met, and for the briefest of seconds, Laurence smiled and began to walk slowly to Tylor's desk, savoring the idea of the abuse he would heap on the young man. Tylor's face was ashen and then, he did something that surprised Laurence. He picked up a paper from his desk and almost sprinted towards him.

“That's it.... come chase the tiger, you little shit.” thought Laurence as Tylor made his way towards him. The grip on his mug grew tight.

Tylor, clutching a fresh teletype, gathered up his courage. He was marginally afraid of the frail old man and had dealt with his abuse for two years. He secretly was counting the days until the bastard's retirement. Normally, he felt it was best to avoid Laurence, but what he had just read necessitated actual interaction with “the old fuck”; a name all in WEOC used only in the most absolute of private settings and only in hushed tones, as if the mere mention of him could cause him to appear suddenly.

“Sir!” he said. “We have some news I think you need to see...” said Tylor, his accent betraying his Midwest origins.

Laurence grumbled “What, Greg? Did the wops lose another ex-Prime minister?” refering to the murder of Aldo Moro the year before.

Tylor, his hand shaking, handed Laurence the teletype. “No.... someone blew up the train station in Bologna...”

Laurence saw his opening and seized it. “So? The Italians have been blowing each other up for decades. Why the hell are you wasting my time!” he roared, his voice raising after each successive word.

“B... b... because one of ours is on the list of the deceased....” Tylor blurted out. Laurence grabbed the teletype out of the young mans hand, growling. His eyes scanned the page, reading quickly. Tylor, pressing his already rotten luck, continued “...one of the Phoenix boys and his wife...” Laurence raised his hand, demanding quiet. Prior to his unwilling transfer to WEOC he had been in charge of South East Asia Clandestine Ops and knew most all of the old boys from Operation Phoenix by name. Laurence read quickly and halted. His eyes closed and in a low muted tone, one lacking any of the rage he had just displayed quietly muttered, “Gregory.... get Western European ops on the line. We have some friends over in the Health Ministry. I want these two names purged. No mention, what so ever. No papers, no certificates... nothing. Got it? And it does not leave this department without my say so.” His hand was shaking as he spilled a bit of his coffee on the floor.

He turned and muttered over his shoulder, “I'll be over at the DCI's office for a while.” He left, leaving Tylor standing there with a worried look on his face.

Долго расположитесь электронное наблюдение штаба ЦРУ от Лазурной птицы.

Первый Голос: “I don't give a shit, Jack. I'm almost retired anyway, what the hell could you do to me?”

Директор Центральных Сведений: “You know better than to ask that Norb....”

Первый Голос: “...are... are you threatening me you little shit?”

Директор Центральных Сведений: “You forget yourself, Laurence. You know the game, we all play it. Her father played it, you played it and well... it sucks rocks but that's the way it is.... she doesn't have anywhere to go anyway. It's either this or ward of the state.”

Первый Голос: “I'll take her in.”

Директор Центральных Сведений: “Oh, stop with the chivalry crap, Norb. We served together, dammit, I know better. Besides, you're damn near retirement and single and honestly, an old grump. Great, you and her daddy were buddies outside of work. I understand, I really do.... but what are you going to do when she's 20. Make her push you around in your wheelchair when she goes off to college. No.... this is how it's going to be. This is how it's GOT to be and you know it.”

Первый Голос: “Jack... just... promise me two things.”

Директор Центральных Сведений: “...sure Norb, go ahead... let's hear it.”

Первый Голос: “That you won't let none of those jackals over at SciTech hurt her if this goes all to a cluster fuck...”

Директор Центральных Сведений: “Norb, you know damn well the second she's in the program she's a matter of national security.... if... if... it does turn into, as you say, a cluster fuck.... aw... christ.... ok, fine, I'll do what I can, no promises though. POTUS will have my head for it, not to mention the Joint Chiefs. What else are you going to toss me over a barrel for?”

Первый Голос: “I want to bring her in myself. Let me at least do that.”

Директор Центральных Сведений: “Agreed, on one condition. No word about her parents. I know that'll be hard for her Uncle Norb not to do, but I have instructions that the project needs to break that to her, as part of her training.”

Первый Голос: “*sigh*... will I see her again?”

Директор Центральных Сведений: “Laurence... Norbert.... from what I've been hearing about the results so far over at homeschool... if you did, she would probably be the last thing you saw before she put a bullet in her Uncle Norbert's head. Go get a driver. She'll be at school. We'll take care of the details. Don't fuck this up Norb. It's not worth it.”
