As if the CIA Couldn’t Get Any Creepier, It Turns Out They’re into Magic

"And for my next trick, I will make a Muslim disappear"

A new book called “The Official CIA Manual of Trickery and Deception” reveals that back in the 1950s the CIA hired a famous magician to train agents. Somehow I doubt he was teaching them how to twist balloon animals in order to infiltrate “red diaper baby” birthday parties.

According to declassified documents, this kind of magic was more about how to slip pills into drinks, covertly snatch things and effectively fool people. Apparently there’s even a section about how to hide locking-picking tools up your ass and how to smuggle a small radio by wearing an artificial scrotum over your real scrotum. Magic!

Well, if the CIA really was dabbling in the dark arts that would go a long way towards explaining the magic bullet from the JFK assassination.

I wonder if the CIA went to David Blaine for advice on how to torture people. He must be an expert after torturing so many people over the years with his lame magic specials.

Check out this devilishly clever “trick” below. From now on, whenever I see a person staring into space like a drooling dumbass, I’m going to wonder if he’s really or a moron or just a CIA guy pretending to look like a moron…
