Thank you, Paul, for confirming to us that Chase Brandon is,
indeed, a senior CIA officer, working seriously for his powerful
Agency, according to Karl Pflock.

But the question remains: why did he come out with such a
curious "revelation"?

Is it yet another debunking trick, or something else?

If it is false, can a senior CIA officer play such a joke on the
public and get away with it?

Or is is telling something at least partly true?

Serious questions, it seems to me.
