Feature films and television series can't stop sucking on the "CIA operative" teat; it was probably that way with cave paintings, so great is the human desire to know what it's like to be a CIA operative. But if you want to know what it's REALLY like to be a CIA operative, you can see this evening's lecture, "Irans Grip on Americas Future," by Robert Baer. Also, if you've ever played the game "Who Would Play You in the Movie of Your Life," and you've said "George Clooney," you may want to check out Baer's talk, because he could play that game in the past tense -- he's billed as "the man behind Syriana." He wants to talk about Iran. We should probably stop playing WWPYitMoYL? and listen.
