FOR HIRE

Wanted: College-Aged Spies

Is there any intelligence on our nation's campuses? The White House hopes so—according to the Washington Post, the Obama administration is looking to recruit spies in colleges and universities around the country by creating a training program for future intelligence officers. The program, a sort of ROTC for spies, seeks first and second-generation Americans with valuable language skills and will provide participants with tuition assistance and paid summer internships at intelligence agencies. No bragging rights, unfortunately: The students will most likely not be allowed to tell anyone about their participation in the program. Students would have to pass security screening at some point, and those who receive enough financial aid would be required to serve an intelligence agency after graduation for a certain amount of time.
