    "The premise – that the U.S. government would hire bad guys to undertake missions considered to be “in the national interest” but needed deniability – seemed a little “out there.”——–Are you serious? "Out there"? More like — super boring and been done a million times in EVERY comic and film! This sort of thing has been going on for many years, and it's HARDLY a secret. Did you just buy a TV set or something?
