UNITED STATES- The US Intelligence Agency has recently joined the photo-sharing app, Instagram, most often associated with the aspirational imagery of influencer lifestyles, and posted its first picture, captioned “I spy with my little eye…”
The post features what looks like a generic messy desk – but all is not as it seems. A number of “hidden messages” have been spotted, including an employee badge with a photo of CIA director Gina Haspel from 1985, and the number 09111947 which references the date the agency opened.
The clock on the desk is set to 08:46, the time the first plane hit the World Trade Centre on 9/11, while a small star-shaped figurine references those given to the families of fallen officers.
Some followers seemed amused but also baffled by the CIA’s choice of first post.
