Yes indeed folks.
We both know times are tough.
But, have you ever imagined yourself hired as James Bond ?
Have you thought about working for the CIA? Seriously.
They’re hiring, they pay great, want smart people (who don’t ask questions and don’t have any of that sticky moral baggage), and best of all – criminal laws don’t apply to employees.
Yes, you could get paid to “extraordinarily render” (kidnap) people, use “enhanced coercive interrogation techniques” on them, and if you show promise they might even let you “euthanise” them.
This is much better than James Bond stuff, because if you sign up — you could remotely pilot Reaper and Predator drones from a computer at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada, “collaterally damage” unarmed civilians halfway around the world (“C.I.A. Drones Kill Civilians in Pakistan, New York Times, March 2011”), and get back home for a Saturday morning golf tee time at Pebble Beach.
I know, CIA drones have only killed 2,043 Pakistanis since 2006. (and its too bad they were mostly civilians and that we aren’t at war with Pakistan), but you could help increase that total body count.
And they hand out free stuff at these recruiting sessions like a CIA logo pen, logo carry bag and . . . (but I’ll save that for another article.)
So put on your spiffiest suit, but leave your morals and sense of humor at home, and get on down to Middlebury’s MIIS.

Update March 2013: Not wanting to be left out the NSA (super secret US government agency) put on an information forum for prospective employees at MIIS on March 9th, 2013 at Noon.
Wikipedia article on CIA Kidnapping (euphemistically called “Extraordinary Rendition”) and Torture.the Monterey County Herald was advertising CIA Recruiting, this is an ad from 2010.
