Woman arrested at CIA headquarters after asking to speak with 'Agent Penis'
A woman showed up to the CIA headquarters and demanded to speak with "Agent Penis" earlier this week, and perhaps most shocking of all, she is not from Florida.
According to the criminal complaint, 58-year-old Jennifer G. Hernandez arrived at the CIA's visitor center on the afternoon of May 3 and when approached by a security officer, presented her Iowa identification card, asked them to return her North Carolina ID card, and requested "to speak to Agent Penis."
Yes, that's literally in the criminal complaint. Unfortunately, the CIA doesn't ever comment on its employees so we may never know whether there is in fact an Agent Penis somewhere deep in the bowels of Langley, protecting all of us from danger.
The May 3 encounter was actually one of many, according to the complaint.
On April 22 at around 8:16 p.m., Hernandez allegedly showed up on foot to CIA headquarters and explained to security officers that she was there to see her recruiter. The officers told her she was trespassing and she left a few minutes later.
Then on May 1 at 9:30 p.m., Hernandez showed up in a Lyft and once again said she was there to see her recruiter, the complaint said. And once again, she was told to pound sand. The next day, she showed up in an Uber with the same story, before being cited for trespassing and directed to leave. During this encounter, security officers mistakenly kept her North Carolina ID card.
Which gets us to May 3, when Hernandez demanded her ID back and a chit-chat with Agent Penis.
From the complaint:
After a review of records, I determined that CIA police officers had encountered the defendant on several recent occasions, and had cited her for trespassing on the prior evening. I also learned that in the course of that May 2, 2019 encounter, CIA police had unintentionally retained the defendant's North Carolina identification card, and that the card was in storage elsewhere at CIA Headquarters. Another police officer then retrieved the defendant's North Carolina identification card and provided it to the defendant.
Police officers then directed the defendant to leave the premises and asked how she intended to leave. The defendant stated that she planned to leave by bus, and officers remained with her at the bus stop for several minutes until the next bus arrived. When the bus arrived, the defendant asked the police officers, "do you really think I'm going to leave?"
Officers then warned the defendant that if she did not depart the premises, she would be arrested. The defendant then declined to board the bus and stated that "l am not leaving." Officers thereupon arrested the defendant for remaining on an Agency installation after being ordered to leave.
Hernandez is currently being held in Alexandria, Va. city jail.
We wish her the best of luck with her CIA employment endeavors.
A group of vets are raising money to pay for a medal the Iraqi government awarded them, but never delivered
In June 2011 Iraq's defense minister announced that U.S. troops who had deployed to the country would receive the Iraq Commitment Medal in recognition of their service. Eight years later, millions of qualified veterans have yet to receive it.
The reason: The Iraqi government has so far failed to provide the medals to the Department of Defense for approval and distribution.
A small group of veterans hopes to change that.
For a cool $8.5 million, you could be the proud owner of a "fully functioning" F-16 A/B Fighting Falcon fighter jet that a South Florida company acquired from Jordan.
The combat aircraft, which can hit a top speed of 1,357 mph at 40,000 feet, isn't showroom new — it was built in 1980. But it still has a max range of 2,400 miles and an initial climb rate of 62,000 feet per minute and remains militarized, according to The Drive, an automotive website that also covers defense topics, WBDO News 96.5 reported Wednesday.
A doctor who treated accident victims has a radioactive isotope in his body. Russia says it came from his diet
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian authorities said on Friday that a doctor who treated those injured in a mysterious accident this month had the radioactive isotope Caesium-137 in his body, but said it was probably put there by his diet.
The deadly accident at a military site in northern Russia took place on Aug. 8 and caused a brief spurt of radiation. Russian President Vladimir Putin later said it occurred during testing of what he called promising new weapons systems.
Groundwater at the Air Force Academy is contaminated with the same toxic chemicals polluting a southern El Paso County aquifer, expanding a problem that has cost tens of millions of dollars to address in the Pikes Peak region.
Plans are underway to begin testing drinking water wells south of the academy in the Woodmen Valley area after unsafe levels of the chemicals were found at four locations on base, the academy said Thursday.
