Nocs who are simply given a business cover are easy to spot. The develop$emt of a noc that is effective depends on developing a cover that can't be penetrated because it is who the person is. This takes many years and infinite patience. The current practice merely increases the risk to the agent without doing anything for effectiveness. Being a noc is not about bureaucratic classification or superficial identity is a way of life. Very few people have the appetite or psychological motivation for the effective abandonment of their own personalities and few handlers can stand the stress of managing deep cover.

Most american companies are suspecred of housing cia agents as we are. So that's no cover at all. Having someone become an executive of a foreign comppany and be a foreign national is what is essential. This requires the use of first generation immigrants as the chinese do and as the the united states does intermittently. The problem is that the security people set standards that people can't possinly meet. Some dci waive these standards and some tighten them.

When they are tightened you get mormons working for american accounting firms trying to do intelligence in beijing. The trick is for the us to employ first or second generation chinese at an early early age, craft the needed cover meticulously, and have them live in china, speaking native chinese, marrying chinese spouses and growting that way. It requires the fbi to hire hundreds of first generation chinerse to meet and double chinese operatives.

This is certainly some the united states has done intermittently in the past, but never the fbi. The same applies to all nationalities.

The greatest advantage the unitied states has in the intelligence was is its immigrant population. That's where you develop nocs. During oss days these were the ones who were the effectives, not the yale pipe smokers.

If you want to be a spy it helps not to look like one. The american noc working in tashkent for say hewlett packard can be spotted immediately by the russian counter intelligence guy planted in hp. The russian is an american citizen, immigrant and a graduate of wharton with an american wife and kids. He sits at his desk does great work and watches. The american noc went to byu, and spends less time on the job than an ambitious employee should. He is also the guy who spends his time in the bar chatting up junior host government employees instead of the girls. He sticks out like a sore thumb and figured out in a few weeks.

Slipping a noc into a foreign country is hard. You start with a native and then work like crazy. Everything else is pseudo intelligence.

Well, new NCS employees are primarily NOCs now. They gotta have some sort of business cover, even if they are all fake businesses (I have no idea bout the latteR).

Chinese are a given, the Americans are way too concerned about getting caught.

The CIA can only infiltrate an American company with witting knowledge of the American company.

Usually the CEO and Corporate Legal counsel are the only ones who know. For the most part, the CIA gets the bums rush when they ask Fortune 50's.

Times are different in America. We are no longer a patriotic nation. Shareholders rule. SEC rules. DOJ concerns. etc.

And why wouldn't the Chinese (especially) or Americans doing this too?

Business intelligence.

There is a MOSSAD operative under business cover stealing other companies secrets from this group.

I'll look into this a little more, but I would find it hard to believe that a number of other agencies haven't also infiltrated it.
