Intelligence Failure: Two words that have become linked at the hip. Remember when our alphabet agenciesCIA, DIA, NSA, FBIwere actually competent? Are you sure? Maybe they were just better at burying their mistakes. Our spooks have been playing games with other governments for half a century. Allies and enemies alike have gotten tired of our grubby fingerprints all over their national interests. Gearheardts answer? Be sure to wear gloves! Gearheardtapparently back from the dead, or maybe Laoswants to play for all the Mexican marbles, and he insists he needs Jacks help to do it. Jack really is in the CIA by now, temporarily running the Mexico City station at the embassy, and ought to know better, but Gearheardts sexy assistant with the disdain for clothes is so darn cute and Gearheardts insane resolve is just so darn convincing. But does the Agency really want the Cubans to take over Mexico? Well, the good Cubans, maybe. If you thought the Vietnam War of Nam-A-Rama was crazy, you aint seen nothin yet. Say hello to Goodbye Mexico.
