Back in 1999, ex-CIA agent Antonio Mendez wrote a book about his deceptive practices which was wonderfully reviewed by our esteemed Jim Steinmeyer.
One of the chapters in the book, appropriately titled, "A Classic Case of Deception," goes at length into the process and the eventual solution Mendez arrived at into sneaking 6 American diplomats out of Iran. Sort of like Larry Jennings' "Invisible Travelers" on steroids.
Fast forward to the present and a movie has been made, based specifically on this chapter in the book, which is sort of a play on itself if you read the excerpt above. The movie is titled, Argo, and is due out on the big screen on Oct. 12, directed and starring Ben Affleck.
