Its true, we kind of like calling ourselves the Inglorious Amateurs.
With more and more memoirs appearing from us former Intel Officers, we thought it would be a great idea to promote our site with an official Inglorious Amateurs shirt. Full disclosure here, we are putting these out mostly because we want new shirts to wear, and hope others like them enough to pony up your hard earned $Mullah Omars$ to support our site.
Professionally screened on the perfect 60/40 blend cotton/poly shirt, just like the IACOG The IASHIELD is presented with the classic V-42 dagger and latin "Nos Longe Inter Paucos" (We Are The Few, The Far Between) on the front and our Inglorious Amateurs lightly distressed and subdued on the back. An instant favorite!
We heartily honor the Glorious Amateurs that came before us and by no means are we casting ourselves into their level of awesomeness, in fact that’s why we are called the Inglorious Amateurs. It is our way of honoring the current and more recently “former” Intelligence Officers.
That is really what this site is about. We take pride in putting together stories and points of view that go beyond talking head opinion pieces from regular sources. Our views are honed from personal experience in the Central Intelligence Agency. Often times we are commenting on things that we have direct knowledge of, and have to seek formal approval from the Agency to even post.
We have plans for a number of more specific designs. We’re testing the waters here, so thank you for your support.
