    Maybe a little more subtle than the ones in movies, that have a huge 'FBI' on the back though. ;)

    I always like the photos that are captioned 'Secret agents' or 'Special Forces'- I've never understood them.

    I don't think the CIA goes quite that far.

    This looks like a homework question, and as such I'm suprised at how detailed the answers are here.

    Jakelawson, I think you've been very lucky this time.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
